Wow, I did not know about this until now! Thank you for posting this!
I wish I could attend. Years ago, I attended a Russian Catholic "synod" of the then 3 Russian Catholic parishes of the USA (NY, LA, SF) during the Melkite Convention in Los Angeles during the 1990's. Discussion included petitioning Rome for a Russian Catholic vicariate. Unfortunately, nothing happened.
Kudos to Fr. Lawrence for organizing this congress. It would be such a tragedy if the Russian Byzantine Catholic Church ceased to exist.
Yes, it is a tiny community compared to other Eastern Catholic Churches, but their fidelity to the liturgical traditions of the Russian Church is beyond compare.
Does anyone have any information on registering or attending the meeting?
I recommend contacting Fr. Lawrence for more information: https://www.stnich.org/contact
I'm curious to know why it's taking place in Bergamo, Italy.
BTW, the Catholic Herald version of Natasha Marsh's article is abridged. You can read the full article (with pictures) here: https://www.catholicweekly.com.au/orthodoxy-russian-catholic-way/
Holy Hieromartyr Leonid, pray for us and the prosperity of the Russian Greek Catholic Church!
