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.

Exaltaton of the Cross

Save Your people, O Lord, and bless Your inheritance. * Grant victory to Your Church over her enemies * and protect your people by Your Cross. (Troparion)

Willing raised upon the Cross, O Christ God, * You bestow Your mercies upon a new people who are called by Your Name. *  May Your Church rejoice in Your strength. * Give her victory over every enemy. * May she have Your help as the weapon of peace, * the invincible ensign of victory. (Kontakion)

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

Humility is the only thing we need; one can still fall having virtues other than humility -- but with humility one does not fall.

Elder Herman of Mt. Athos
