Undo revision 80887 - factually incorrect. Fr Aidan was a hieromonk in standing when he left.
In 2008, Metropolitan [[Hilarion (Kapral) of New York|Hilarion]] of ROCOR [ blessed] Hieromonk David (Pierce) to assist Dom Augustine Whitfield "in the continuation of the work of Mt. Royal" at Hieromonk David's monastery, Holyrood, in Florida. This blessing includes the celebration of the Mt. Royal recension of liturgy, the "Holyrood/St. Petroc' Sarum on High Feasts," and [ occasional celebration] of the Byzantine Rite. Some have stated that on rare occasions he uses propers once used in the Eastern Archdiocese of the [[Holy Synod of Milan]], although no quotation of his to this effect has been produced.
In late 2008, Metropolitan Hilarion also gave recieved in a former hieromonk of the Milan Synod, Father Aidan (Keller), a blessing to use and blessed the publication of an new edition of his own translation of the seminal work, ''Old Sarum Rite Missal'' for his personal prayers, while he serves a Byzantine parish in ROCOR. His liturgy had previously been blessed by the Western Archdiocese of the Milan Synod.
Western rite communities can also be found which are not, or no longer, in communion with the mainstream [[Orthodox Church]].
