If you have never experienced a Byzantine Catholic Divine Liturgy & would like to see what it’s all about, we also welcome you to join us for any of our services throughout the week! Weekly schedules can be found on Facebook. Sunday Divine Liturgy is at 10:00 am.
The Byzantine Catholic tradition is known for its ancient roots stemming from the Apostles of the early Church, and for engaging all of our God-given senses to draw us into a place of holiness. Beautiful icons draw our eyes heavenward, the use of bells and singing capture our hearing to guide out thoughts, and even the sense of smell is engaged to draw out attention to God through the burning of holy incense. Everything around us is employed to make us aware of God’s Divine Presence and love.
In today’s fast-paced world, the Divine Liturgy becomes a place of respite, where the human person can connect with God, a place where we can remember where we com from, and who we come from; so that as we meander through our inevitably busy lives, God can remain with us and sustain us through ever circumstance. Come check it out!!!
