"There may only be 18 million Eastern Rite Catholics, but they make an astonishing contribution to the global Church. There are 23 Eastern Catholic Churches which are in union with Rome while retaining their ancient liturgical traditions. They have a complex history, founded in the encounter between Western Catholics and Eastern Christians, and marked by exile, repression, decline and rebirth. A few – the Ukrainian Greek Catholics, the Lebanese Maronites, the Syro-Malabar Church of southern India – are millions-strong and well known from their diaspora communities."
- Jon Anderson, Catholic Herald, the 7th of March, 2019
The Diocesan Ecumenical Commission, together with the Syro-Malabar Oriental Catholic Church of south India, invites us all to come along and find out more. For more information, please contact Fran Wickes, by sending e-mail to email@example.com.
