Hi, I'm new to this forum. I'm a devout, 18 year old, traditional Latin Catholic convert. I plan on going to an Eastern Catholic Divine Liturgy sometime (most likely Ruthenian) and going to confession in the Byzantine Rite beforehand. I might drive to Spokane, Washington or somewhere in Western Oregon.
My question is: how would I receive Holy Communion in the Byzantine Rite as if I was Ruthenian, and the same with confession? I understand that the communicant does not say "Amen," for example, which I would be familiar with anyways since I attend the Extraordinary Form of the Mass by default (1962 Roman Missal).
