Alex, thanks for your reply. I'm very limited on travel time being a single mom. But I do want to come out this summer for a few days and really take a good look around. Visit some good orthodox churches. Which ones do you recommend as being conservative (not necessarily with a TLM). I read that Our Lady of Peace in Santa Clara and St Dominic's in San Fran are solid places to go. Any others?
Our Lady of Peace is a great parish and area and community. I am from the Bay Area and I would not mind living there again.
