Protecting of 4/Nov

This article has been protected because of a long sequence of edits. A few days to cool the keyboards, I think, are in order. All edits on this article should in future, imho, be done with official information (ie Monastery or Diocesan) to avoid this kind of editing based on unverifiable personal experience or hearsay or whatnot. -- Pistevo 20:21, 3 November 2005 (CST)

I think we'll freeze the article here for awhile. By my judgment, it contains some good information about the monastery, without getting into anything contentious. I've reverted "various parts of the military" back to "seamen" in light of this clarification from Fr. Michael: "seamen" refers to all mariners - mostly merchant seamen (Webster's defines a seaman as a person skilled in seamanship .....)" Fr. John 22:49, 4 November 2005 (CST)
I've just protected the article again. Please discuss any future revisions on this talk page before they happen. Thanks. — FrJohn (talk) 19:04, October 9, 2006 (CDT)

Fr Michael of Saint Petroc Monastery has been suspended and retired by Metropolitan Hilarion. See below

February 23, 2013 No. 2-28-13

In view of his vioations of the canons by disrespect of the person of the Patriarch and other members of the Hierarchy, lengthy absences from his parish in Hobart, Tasmania, causing spiritual neglect of the faithful of his church community, and the constant inflammatory and unedifying negative comments which he publicly broadcasts within the religious media, bringing disrepute to the Orthodox witness of the Western Rite movement, Hieromonk Michael (Mansbridge-Wood), cleric of the Australia and New Zealand Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, is hereby suspended and relieved of all his priestly duties and obligations concerning the Western Rite in the United Kingdom and elsewhere, and is retired from active service in the Church. Given the above, any and all blessings for his websites are hereby withdrawn.

(signed) +Hilarion

Metropolitan Hilarion, Archbishop of Sydney, Australia and New Zealand, First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia.
