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:
Seminary: SS. Cyril & Methodious Seminary
Dioceses: ARCHDIOCESE OF PITTSBURGH
DIOCESE OF PASSIC (NJ)
DIOCESE OF PARMA (OH)
DIOCESE OF VAN NUYS / LOS ANGLES
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).
Father Orosz at Holy Trinity on Scofield Avenue in Bridgeport, Ct can help you. call info and get his exact adress and number. George Demetrios
There is also the Melkite Diocese of Newton, MA. Archbishop Koseph Tawil
Director of Vocations: Rev. Damon Geiger, 233 Grant Ave. Newton, MA. 02159
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.
Call Rev. Michael Zammar, BSO at St. Joseph's Parish in
Lawrence, MA 508-682-8152.
