Hey everyone. I started attending a Ukrainian Catholic church a few months ago and I am really enjoying it. I hope to enter religious life in the roman catholic church so I don't believe I'll be attending divine liturgies forever. As of now, I am curious who I fall under jurisdiction wise for fasts, holy days, and other important matters. Am I still canonically under the rules of the roman catholic church and the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (I'm Canadian)?

Actually, for the longest time with two bishops here, I was wondering the same thing . . .

Hi, HeraclitusTheObscu!

Welcome to the Forum!

If your formal enrollment is in the Latin Church (the Roman Catholic Church) then you are subject to her canonical law, including for things like fasting and holy days of obligation.

However, if you are planning to participate in the life of a Ukrainian Catholic parish, then you could ask your bishop, pastor or spiritual father for a blessing to follow the customs of the parish you worship at for as long as you worship there.

John
