''This is paraphrased from the ROCOR regulations[http://synod.com/synod/engdocuments/enov_rectors.html] , and supplemented by the ROCOR Normal Parish By-laws[http://www.rocor.org.au/news10/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/normal_parish_bylaws_en.pdf], to give an idea of what is required of rectors. Many of these regulations would apply across traditions.''
