I'm sorry, I'm unaware of any. Perhaps you should scoot up to Ohio - - - that state has plenty. wink

Good luck.

Ambrose -

The closest parishes to you are either in Indianapolis or Dayton. frown

The Indianapolis parish is St. Athanasius BCC. According to the Eparchy of Parma website their contact info is as follows:

http://r-fol.com/st.athanasius/
Father Sidney Sidor
1117 Blaine Avenue
Indianapolis, IN 46221-1110
Phone: (317)-632-4157
Fax: (317) 632-2988

The Dayton area parish is St. Barbara's BCC. Their contact info is as follows:

http://home.catholicweb.com/barbaradayton/
The Rev. Eugene Linowski
5915 Springboro Pike
Dayton, OH 45449-3249
Phone: (937)-434-9205
Fax: (937)-434-9205
E-mail: revfrjohn@att.net

You might consider gathering a few interested friends with you to visit either of these parishes. You could even start just a Byzantine/Eastern Catholic study group that begins by answering the Holy Father's call for Roman Catholics to become more familiar with the Eastern traditions. If there is enough interest generated, perhaps a local priest from Louisville would be interested in persuing bi-ritual faculties to help support some type of outreach. wink

Hope that helps!

Welcome to the forum St. Ambrose. Hopefully you will find this a good place to learn about the East.

Ask around of the priests too, occasionally you find Roman priest who have bi-ritual faculties, but no longer use them because there is not a church nearby. They are often very interested in celebrating the Liturgy.

Don't you have a Passionist Community there? They may have a priest with bi-ritual faculties also.

Father Stephen Dominic Hayes, OP, is in Springfield, KY. He holds bi-ritual faculties with the Melkites - and is a dear and holy man.
