History of Byzantine Church.
Please come and bring a friend who is interested in deepening their knowledge of Jesus Christ and our Church.
Forty days after Christ was born He was presented to God in the Jerusalem Temple according to the Mosaic Law. Thus, forty days after Christmas, on the second of February, the Church celebrates the feast of the presentation called the Meeting (or Presentation or Reception) of the Lord. The meeting of Christ by the elder Simeon and the prophetess Anna (Lk 2.22–36) is the main event of the feast of Christ’s presentation in the Temple.
Theophany is the Feast which reveals the Most Holy Trinity to the world through the Baptism of the Lord (Mt.3:13-17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21-22). God the Father spoke from Heaven about the Son, the Son was baptized by Saint John the Forerunner, and the Holy Spirit descended upon the Son in the form of a dove.
Christ is Born! Glorify Him!
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.
