Posted By: orthodoxsinner2 Visit to UGCC Chapel - 12/02/19 02:33 AM
Hi all,

It probably has been some time since I last posted (5 + years perhaps).

I have since relocated to Lincoln, NE. I can't say for sure how long I will reside here but at least until August.

I have kind of been all over the place on my spiritual journey. I have not gone to an Orthodox Church or a Catholic Church for about 7 years.

As many of my previous posts have dealt with considering returning to the Catholic Church I believe I may actually be in a position to make that happen since there is a small UGCC Chapel here in Lincoln.

Today was my first visit. It was a pleasant and spiritually uplifting experience. It was the priest's last Sunday as he is going back to Ukraine. He told me that the Liturgy would be all in Ukrainian which is fine because I was pretty sure that I could follow along even though I don't know any Ukrainian.

He actually did do a healthy amount of English which was very nice of him.

He said there will be a visiting priest for the next 2 weeks and then the new permanent priest would arrive the following week. I am assuming the priest comes from Omaha which is only an hour away and there is a UGCC parish there.

If anyone has any info on Eastern Catholicism in Nebraska that would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Looks like their is also a Ruthenian presence here. I attended their liturgy in Omaha this past Saturday. From what i can gather they alternate weekly between using a RC Church in Omaha and St George's UGCC in Lincoln.

I think my dates are off by a couple of years. It only feels that long. However, what's important is that I have attended an Eastern Catholic Church 2 weeks in a row and plan to continue. Prayers are greatly appreciated

This past Saturday I was received into the Catholic Church (Ruthenian Eparchy of Parma). I have felt amazing and elated since.
