Hi, I'm new to this forum. I'm a devout, 18 year old, traditional Latin Catholic convert. I plan on going to an Eastern Catholic Divine Liturgy sometime (most likely Ruthenian) and going to confession in the Byzantine Rite beforehand. I might drive to Spokane, Washington or somewhere in Western Oregon.

My question is: how would I receive Holy Communion in the Byzantine Rite as if I was Ruthenian, and the same with confession? I understand that the communicant does not say "Amen," for example, which I would be familiar with anyways since I attend the Extraordinary Form of the Mass by default (1962 Roman Missal).

Christ is in our midst!!

Welcome to the forum.

You might ask the priest when you go to confession at the Eastern Catholic Church you plan to attend. He will be able to tell you what their particular custom is.
