St. John of the Desert Melkite Church"You cannot pray at home as at church, where there is a great multitude, where exclamations are cried out to God as from one great heart, and where there is something more: the union of minds, the accord of souls, the bond of charity, the prayers of the priests. (Saint John Chrysostom, De incomprehensibili 3, 6: PG 48, 725)


Byzantine Catholic parishes tend to be fairly small – usually somewhere between 100 - 1,000 people. One advantage of smaller parishes is that everyone generally knows everyone else. If you’re a parishioner and you miss a Sunday no one will probably say anything. But if you miss two Sundays in a row it is highly likely that your phone will start ringing with calls from other parishioners asking if you’re OK.

The following links to parish web pages are organized first by Particular Church, then by geographical location. Byzantine Catholic (Greek Catholic) parishes in North America are organized by eparchies (dioceses) based upon the original ethnicity of the immigrants that brought Byzantine Catholicism to North America: Ruthenian (originally from central Europe), Belarusian, Italo-Greek, Melkite (from the Middle East), Romanian, Russian and Ukrainian.  Several Eastern Catholic parishes that are non-Byzantine are also included here (Maronite, Ge’ez and Chaldean). Some of the pages may be unofficial.

Ge'ez Catholic Parishes with Home Pages

Ethiopian and Eritrean Catholics trace their religious heritage back to Apostolic times (Acts 8:26-40). In the fourth century, Saint Frumentius brought Christianity in the ancient Alexandrian Tradition of Saint Mark into the Axumite Kingdom. It was translated into Ge'ez the language of the Axumite kingdom of that time.

Teachings of Christ

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” (Matthew 5:43-44 ESV)

Resurrection

Christ is risen from the dead * trampling down Death by death, * and to those in the tombs bestowing life! (Troparion)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Although You descended into the tomb, O Immortal One, * You destroyed the power of Hades; * You arose as the victor, O Christ God, * proclaiming to the myrrh-bearing women: “Rejoice!” * And granting peace to Your Apostles, * O, You, Who gives resurrection to the fallen. (Kontakion)

Random Proverb

"My son, keep my words and treasure up my commandments with you; keep my commandments and live." (Proverbs 7:1,2 ESV)

Pray Without Ceasing

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

Our distresses are notorious, even though we leave them untold, for now their sound has gone out into all the world. The doctrines of the Fathers are despised; apostolic traditions are set at nought; the devices of innovators are in vogue in the Churches; now men are rather contrivers of cunning systems than theologians; the wisdom of this world wins the highest prizes and has rejected the glory of the cross. Shepherds are banished, and in their places are introduced grievous wolves hurrying the flock of Christ. Houses of prayer have none to assemble in them; desert places are full of lamenting crowds. The elders lament when they compare the present with the past. The younger are yet more to be compassionated, for they do not know of what they have been deprived. All this is enough to stir the pity of men who have learnt the love of Christ; but, compared with the actual state of things, words fall very far short....

Saint Basil the Great
(Letter 90)
