Hi! Does anyone here have service details of the Eastern-Catholic parishes/churches in Constantinople?

I recall at least two:

1) Holy Trinity Greek-Catholic, which was used by the Chaldaeans as of a decade or so ago.
2) Armenian Catholic churches?

An RC friend is visiting and he is interested in the East, and would like to attend mass there.

Thanks!

Edward, sorry, but even after having been to Constantinople more than 25 times, I don't know of any functioning. There was one Greek Catholic parish that Father +Serge Keleher tried to support about 20 years ago, near the old British embassy. But I doubt it's open. I usually go to the Patriarchate for their services and don't receive communion. Or when I've been there with a group, I bring my own clergy and we do our own!

PS. The RC Cathedral of the Holy Spirit, across from the Hilton Hotel near Taksim Square, has Mass in multiple languages on Sundays, I believe including one in English. That's where Pope Francis celebrated Mass on his visit a few years ago, and it's where Patriarch Emeritus Gregorios of the Melkites celebrated the Divine Liturgy during the second Orientale Lumen Conference we had there about 10 years ago.
