Western Rite Orthodoxy’s Contribution to Unity

As you know there is a growth in Western Rite Orthodox in this country. As they are not ethnically oriented as are many of the Eastern parishes, and use English exclusively in their services, they are able to reach out to non-Orthodox, non-Ethnic Protestants and non-churched individuals to offer them another avenue into Orthodoxy.

My question is this: How can Western Rite Orthodox contribute to the Pan-Orthodox unity and catholicity of the Orthodox Church here in America?

    as a lay person,i feel that the WROeliminates the ethnic barriers that prevent and make potential converts uneasy about orothodoxy.
