Charleston,
The difference between the OCA and the Moscow Patriarchate parish you linked above wouldn't be too much. I see the parish you linked has Sat. Vigil or just Vespers. Most OCA parishes just have Vespers on Saturday evenings. I mean all in all really the services would be about the same where ever you went. Rubrics and liturgics would differ but you as a person in the pew not singing or serving on the altar wouldn't have to deal with the differences you'd find between the Antiochian, Moscow Patriarch and OCA services. Check that parish out you might just stay. It's always best to call to see if the webiste still meshes up with the current parish schedule. I see they haven't added pictures since 2007 so if that's when they updated their service schedule I'd make sure to call.
So that Moscow Patriarchate parish especially since it is Revised Julian Calender and English usage really wouldn't differ too too much from an OCA parish.

Thank you, Orthodox Pyrohy.

I went and called the pastor, Fr. Starr. We set up an appointment to talk next week.

I'm very excited. I'm especially encouraged that he is a strong supporter of monasticism and has tried to start a small convent here.

I'll share my life long attraction to the Prayer of the Heart and my search to find a parish/teacher to help nurture that calling.
 
Please pray that I keep my heart and mind open to were I'm being lead.

Best, -Charleson
