May I attend Mass at this church?

I am considering attending St. Edward the Confessor Catholic Church Western Rite on Sunday. Is this church a proper Catholic church recognized by the pope? Can I receive communion there, or would that be a sin?
Thank you,

Dear friend,

It sounds Catholic. Usually, Catholic parishes don’t have a reason to state their rite. You don’t mention where this is, Call your diocese to make sure.
