As Melkite Greek-Catholics in NYC, we aim to serve our Community of originally of Middle Eastern origin, and our beloved city, with a generous spirit. We trace our history to the early Christians of Antioch; it was in Antioch, the ancient city, formerly part of Syria and now in Turkey, where Christianity was introduced by St. Peter and St. Paul and it was there that the followers of Jesus were first called Christians (Acts 11:19-26). We celebrate the joy of the Gospel in our Divine Liturgy of Byzantine Rite in English, Arabic, and Greek. We are committed to sharing our faith and fostering the love of Christ. By broadcasting our Divine Liturgy, the different Liturgical Services, and any Biblical/Spiritual talk, we extend our hands to reach out to the sick and to you who cannot physically come to Church.
