I'm thinking about attending Divine Liturgy there when I go home for Christmas break. Is it a big church? Tell me about it!

No, it is a very very small church, though the community seems to be solid and the architecture is fitting.

Fr. Chrysostom Frank also celebrates the Russian Catholic Divine Liturgy in English at St. Elizabeth, and Fr. Vasyl Hnatikivsky at Transfiguration UGCC is very welcoming.

Tom-

Father Michael O'Loughlin is the pastor. He graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville, and Ss Cyril and Methodius Byzantine Catholic Seminary. Energetic and youthful, Fr Michael was ordained in 2005. Excellent homilist. He is also the Associate Director of Vocations.

I know a number of the parishioners and the parish will make visitors feel at home.

I would encourage your visit.

I've not met him - but with a name like Michael O'Loughlin, how far wrong could one go? Please give him greetings from the Homeland!

I've been to both: Holy Protection when it was under Fr Chrysostom, and also Fr Chrysostom's Russian Catholic community. Both are small communities.

I have the utmost respect for Fr Chrysostom, a former professor and a good friend of mine, and I highly recommend his Russian Liturgy. I have never met the priest that's now at Holy Protection, but I've heard through the grapevine that he's a fine priest as well.

Like Venite I have been to both under Father Chrysostom. SS Cyril & Methodius Russian Byzantine Catholic Church uses the Byzantine Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. It's wonderful and I go there every time I go up to Denver. Holy Protection Ruthenian Catholic Church uses the Revised Divine Liturgy. Father Michael is a really nice priest.

For SS Cyril & Methodius the easiest way is to get off I-25 at West Colfax headed east. Go past the university and turn left on Speer. Then left onto St. Francis Street. The Byzantine Divine Liturgy is Sundays at noon. Who would ever think that the Roman Catholics would be the preservers of the Byzantine Liturgy inside the Catholic Church?

I haven't gone yet!! But I hope to sometime within the month! I'm considering a transfer to the University of Denver (I'm currently at Seton Hall University in New Jersey) and I live in Greeley so I'll try to make my way to the Divine Liturgy during spring break.

WOW! Ages later literally and I finally made my way there today. It was Pentecost Monday which was a really great Liturgy. They did the ritual of processing around outside and reading the Gospel to the Four Directions of the Earth. That was really great and symbolic. There was only seven of us including the priest but who cares, it was a great service haha
