Eastern churches
High-church exodus to a friendly bishop?
The ‘S. Clement’s’ of the Ruthenian Catholics, Holy Resurrection Monastery in the Californian desert (the photo is of the abbot, Fr Nicholas), may change jurisdictions from the ‘ethnic Novus Ordo’ Ruthenians to the observant Byzantine (and witness for peace) Bishop John-Michael (Botean) of the Romanian Catholic eparchy of Canton, Ohio.

Ethnicity isn’t the issue: for example, Fr Nicholas, from Australia, is an ethnic Greek, not Slavic or Romanian.
