Our Faith

The New Testament Church led by the Holy Spirit

The Byzantine Catholic Church traces its foundation to the 12 Apostles of Christ who were the companions of Jesus as he walked on this earth some 2000 years ago. After the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4), the Apostles began to proclaim the Gospel, first to Jerusalem, then to the Gentiles.

Safe Environment

Our pledge to protect our children, youth and vulnerable adults.
