A community is forming now in Fort Mill South Carolina. Fort Mill is minutes from North Carolina and 25 minutes from Downtown Charlotte.
We Celebrate The Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom - Byzantine (Ruthenian) Rite
The Orthodox custom is to bless cars at the Feast of Prophet Elijah (Elias) which is July 20 (or near his feast-day). Do you remember the story of Prophet Elijah from the Old Testament? We read about the Life of Prophet Elijah the 3rd and 4th Book of Kings, Wisdom of Sirach 48:1-15, and 1 Maccabees 2:58. He was taken up into Heaven in a fiery chariot! Therefore, we bless our modes of transportation on his feast-day with the hope of safe travels. We will be offering this special blessing to our parish community. Bring your car, bicycle, truck, motorcycle, even Big Wheel, etc.! This is a great opportunity for our youth to experience the blessings that Christ offers in our daily routine, such as traveling.

This community is forming with the blessing of Bishop Kurt Burnette of the Byzantine Catholic Eparchy of Passaic, New Jersey
This community is forming with the assistance of Fr. Steven Galuschik, Pastor of All Saints Church in North Fort Myers, Florida.
We are offering weekly Liturgical services in the Byzantine Rite.
The Byzantine Catholic Church is an Eastern Church in union with Rome; Carpatho-Rusyn in background and is an American Eastern Church. Our Liturgy blends the colors of our many icons with congregational chant and our fragrant incense in prayer.
We invite you to come and see who we are and what we are all about as part of the Eastern half of the Universal Church.
