Melkite Greek Catholic Church

Faith and Worship

Authentic Christian faith is always about the relationship we have with God through Jesus Christ our Lord. From the beginning local Churches have expressed that relationship differently in various liturgies, hymns, theologies, icons and more. Melkites express their faith in the Byzantine tradition of the Greek Patriarchate of Antioch. Liturgically we follow the Byzantine rite. Our spirituality is that of the Christian East (healing, re-creation, theosis, etc.) in common with other Eastern Churches, Catholic and Orthodox. In addition, our particular identity is as Greek Catholics: Eastern in faith, worship and spirituality but united to the Church of Rome with all the problems and opportunities that relationship affords.
