Anyone know if any Eastern Catholic or Orthodox Churches in the USA regularly offer Divine Liturgy in these languages ?

Mother of God Ukrainian Greek Catholic parish in Atlanta, GA (Conyers) offers Divine Liturgy in Spanish every Sunday. Fr. Annibal, the 2nd priest at the parish, is from Argentina.

I believe Archbishop Job of the OCA(ETERNAL MEMORY) blessed one parish in Illinois to serve in Polish to minister to Orthodox Christians from Poland.

I don't know about the other eparchies but in Passaic Bishop Skurla has prohibited using Spanish in the Divine Liturgy. It ws used at a parish up in Connecticut but Bishop Skurla ordered the priest to stop using it. The priest was told that we cannot evangelize Hispanics. They belong to the Roman Catholics and we need to send them there. Our mission is only to ethnic Ruthenians.

That is a very unfortunate comment on the Bishop's part. Living in San Antonio I am well aware of how many Hispanics are unchurched or the most nominal of Roman Catholics. Many Hispanics would respond very well to the sense of community and the solemnity of the worship they find in an Eastern parish. I know that there are Hispanic families who are members at St. John Chrysostom in Houston. There are three Polish National Catholic Churches in Texas and all of them are overwhelmingly Hispanic. It is sad that the Bishop would take such a stance.

If accurate (and I have a suspicion that it is, based on something told to me previously by a friend), that is a truly sad stance that has been taken.

Christ is born!

How odd! I know that, in one parish in the South, Bishop William ordered the priest to combine the Spanish and English liturgies into one bi-lingual liturgy on Sunday.

His Grace should take a trip to the Eparchy of Phoenix, Arizona, where Latino families are joining Byzantine Catholic parishes.

He *must* be aware of that; that is his previous see!

I was at the (then) pro-cathedral for Pascha (though he was traveling), and the Gospel was read in English, Greek, Slavonic, and Spanish . . .

When the Liturgy is served in Spanish in Greek Catholic and other EC communities in the U.S., what translation is used?
