The answer may be; if your church is that important to your life why would you move to an area where you didn’t have access to say a Byzantine Rite sui juris Catholic Church in the first place? I know a million excuses could be given. But seriously, what do you place first, God or the earthly things. I would take a job where I made less money but could be near an Eastern Orthodox church instead of taking a job where I made more money but didn’t have an Eastern Orthodox church nearby. Why? The answer is obvious.
Many Greek/Byzantine Catholics that move away indeed attend Roman Catholic parishes if they don’t have a parish of byzantine rite sui juris-ness. I know for a fact that even in some places they’ve waited until there were enough of them in an area and built missions.
So if you were solid in your say, UGCC and moved where there wasn’t any Byzantine Rite sui juris Churches, you wouldn’t simply go join the Orthodox Church. While you can attend you won’t be able to commune.
Communion bonds the church together, everyone partakes in the body and blood of Christ, shares from the same Chalice. Communing also means that you are saying in public that you accept every teaching of the church.
So to become Orthodox you would have to do so for reasons that were deeper than the fact you didn’t have a Byzantine Catholic Church nearby.
And if you just attended the Orthodox Church you wouldn’t be partaking in the Sacramental life of the church, both the Byzantine Catholic Church or the Eastern Orthodox Church. This is not good for you spiritually.
So, perhaps the best thing to do IS to attend the Roman Catholic Church if you can’t find s UGCC, Ruthenian, etc… Catholic Church. That way you can participate in the Sacramental life of your church and not cut yourself off from it and suffer spiritually.
Full participation in the communal life that Christianity is requires
participation in Sacraments, which are communal, and bond that community together.
That is far more important than saying you wouldn’t want to go to a Roman Church because you don’t like the music, music doesn’t save your mortal soul. Theosis and participating in the sacraments of your church, uniting yourself to the Body of Christ, which is the church (and we are the church as well, through Christ, and what brings us together as one, the Sacraments) these are vastly more important than simply not wanting to attend because of a person distaste or unease about how an non-Byzantine Rite sui juris church conducts its liturgical services.
As stated above, if you did indeed wish to join the Orthodox Church you would have to more or less do so because of deeper reasons than simply not having access to a UGCC or Ruthenian Byzantine Catholic Church. Truthfully, I can’t speak for any priest, but I can’t imagine them encouraging you to join an Eastern Orthodox parish simply for that reason (you moved and can’t get to a Byzantine Catholic parish because the nearest one is two hours away or something).
I only wished more people would have stayed near their parishes, no matter what side of the fence you are on. So many people moved away that once strong communities now are so thin they don’t have the active ministries and so forth, bible studies, etc… social events… because there aren’t enough people. They are missed and all the people that moved away left a lot of people behind and only a skeleton remains of a once robust community.
