Besides the original communities associated with the Society, a number of other parishes have been received into the Western Rite Vicariate of the Antiochian Archdiocese, particularly as the theological and practical devolution of the [[Episcopal Church U.S.A.]] picked up speed in the latter half of the twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-first. Additionally, several Western Rite missions have been founded, some growing into full parish status.
The [[Church of Russia]] also has a history of Western Rite Orthodox work in the United States. Bishop [[Dositheus (Ivanchenko) of New York|Dositheus (Ivanchenko) ]] received a New York [[Old Catholic]] community in 1962 as [[Mount Royal ]] Monastery in Woodstock, NY. The monastery later served a chapel in St. Nicholas Cathedral in New York City under the [[omophorion]] of Archbishop [[John (Wendland) of New York and the Aleutians|John (Wendland)]] of the [[Russian Exarchate of North America]], only later to be received by the [[Russian Orthodox Church Abroad]] and Archbishop Nikon (Rklitzsky) in 1975. In 1993, Abbot Augustine (Whitfield) retired to Jacksonville, Florida. The prior of Mount Royal then founded Christ the Savior Monastery or ''Christminster'' and relocated to Providence, Rhode Island, under Archbishop [[Hilarion (Kapral) of Sydney]], then of Manhattan. Its present abbot is Dom James Deschene.
