It has come to our attention that a text known as “The Book of the Parochial Use”, printed in Scotland, is being put forth as in some way authorized for use in some churches or monasteries of our Metropolia. It must be emphasized that this text is not approved for use by any of our clergy, monastics, laity, or their respective churches, chapels, missions, or monasteries, at any location, in our Metropolia, due to the text containing numerous canonical and liturgical errors that are unacceptable to our Metropolia. As this text was never approved by our Metropolitan, or by the Synod of Bishops, and as it contains the aforementioned errors, it is considered prohibited for usage in our Metropolia. The Metropolitan and the Synod of Bishops will be making a further statement in the coming days.
