In the East Coast. I plan to reside in Philadephia when I get out of the Army in March 2009. I think there are some Eastern Rite Catholic Churches there.
For example, I know of a Byzantine Catholic Church in Homer Glen, IL. From what I gather, they are the only on in IL, at least of the Rutherian tradition. Here in NE Ohio we are blessed to have four churches relatively near each other: One in Euclid, Mentor ont he Lake (where I go:D ), Fairport Harbor (my pastor has this church as well and it’s not to far from mine) and one in Ashtabula (the furthest one out).
The reason of this is because two of the places where the Byzantine Catholic Church got their start in the U.S. in the 1880’s are in the areas of Pittsburgh, PA and Minneapolis, MN. The closer you are to those states, the more likely you will find more Byzantine Catholic Churches.
It’s more likely, I will go to the one in PA.
Corky and Mannyfit (and anyone else), we’d be glad to have you celebrate Divine Liturgy with us anytime!
I just love the way you explain the Eastern point of view concerning Catholicism. I never know how much preservation the East has been committed in regard to the Divine Liturgy. I recall in your book, that the Eastern Rite goes by the Liturgy of Mark, and Liturgy of St. Basil, Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. Correct me if my information is incorrect.
I do respect the Latin Rite, but the Eastern Rite has a more appealing to me.[/size]
