The Catholic Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle - EeeeeK!

Catholic, But Not Roman!


Eeeek! Please don't use the term "Uniate" - it's considered an insult.

The preferred term is "Byzantine Catholic".

Byzantine Catholics are a branch of the Orthodox Church in communion with Rome (Bishop Herman of the Orthodox Church in America is quoted as referring to Byzantine Catholics as "Orthodox Christians under papal jurisdiction").

Here's the info for the Byzantine Churches in the USA.

They were originally formed for Ruthenian (Carpathian) immigrints but now are working on evangelical efforts to any and all Americans:

    I can't find the other two directories for the Byzantine-Ukrainians or the Byzantine- Melkites.

    Contact me by email if you need them and I'll look them up.

    The Byzantine-Melkite seminary program is a joint effort with the Greek Orthodox.

    The Byzantine-Ukrainians also have a seminary (I think in Washington, DC).

    Hello Jim:

    There is also the Melkite Diocese of Newton, MA. Archbishop Koseph Tawil

    You might call Fr Geiger to find out if there are seminaries located in the Archdiocese of Boston for Eastern Rite Catholics.

    I think that there are some seminaries in the Boston area, maybe in Lawrence/Methuen, MA area.
