There is a Maronite Catholic Church nearby and as a RC Catholic I’d like to attend Mass there one Sunday.
Could someone tell me a little about what to expect? If there are chants, are they in another language? Is the Eucharist leavened bread, and can a Catholic from the Latin Rite partake of it?
Finally, if I should choose to change to the Eastern Rite would I need the Bishop’s approval? If so, why, since this is still part of the Catholic Church.
Any info would be appreciated.
