United States


In the United States, no canonical jurisdiction has yet been erected for the Ethiopian (Ge'ez) Catholic Church. Accordingly, Eritrean (Ge'ez) Catholics in the United States are canonically subject to the local Latin Ordinary within whose diocese they reside. Some communities additionally identify themselves as being under the Spiritual Omophor of an eparchy in their homeland.

Eritrean Catholics in the United States are significantly underserved pastorally and, in some cases unserved. Listings here include whatever data is available for identifiable Eritrean Catholic communities, served or not.

Dormition

O Mother of God, in giving birth you preserved virginity; * and in falling asleep you did not forsake the world. * You are the Mother of Life and have been transferred to life, * and through your prayers you deliver our souls from death. (Troparion - Tone 1)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Neither the tomb nor death could detain the Mother of God, * who is unsleeping in her prayers and our unfailing hope in her intercession; * for He Who dwelt in her ever-virgin womb, * transferred to Life the Mother of Life. (Kontakion - Tone 2)
