By Church Type

This Directory component is divided into sections for each of the 24 Eastern and Oriental Catholic Churches sui iuris (including the Georgian Greek-Catholic Church, which now exists only in blessed memory) that, together with the Latin Catholic Church, constitute the Catholic Communion. Additionally, there are five sections specific to ethnic, cultural, or ritual communities of faithful which do not themselves constitute Churches sui iuris but, rather, represent distinct constituent entities within a Church sui iuris. The entries in each of those sections are cross-listed in the section devoted to its parent Church sui iuris.

Each section seeks to include all active parishes and missions of a particular Church and, in some instances (chiefly in the diaspora) also lists historical entries. To understand the purpose, nature, and scope of the latter, we recommend reading the detailed explanation of historical entries at Frequently Asked Questions.

Teachings of Christ

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6 ESV)

Saint Nicholas of Myra

The truth of your deeds has revealed you to your flock, * as a rule of faith, an image of meekness, and a teacher of abstinence. * Therefore, you attained the heights through humility, * and riches through poverty. * O Father and Hierarch Nicholas, * pray to Christ God that our souls may be saved. (Troparion, Tone 4)

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

In Myra, You were shown to be a servant of the sacred things, O Holy Nicholas, * for, fulfilling the Gospel of Christ, you, O Venerable, laid down your life for your people, * and saved the innocent from death. * Therefore, you were sanctified as a great initiate of the grace of God. (Kontakion, Tone 3)

Random Proverb

"Hear, O sons, a father's instruction, and be attentive, that you may gain insight, for I give you good precepts; do not forsake my teaching." (Proverbs 4:1,2 ESV)

Pray Without Ceasing

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

For to despise the present age, not to love transitory things, unreservedly to stretch out the mind in humility to God and our neighbor, to preserve patience against offered insults and, with patience guarded, to repel the pain of malice from the heart, to give one's property to the poor, not to covet that of others, to esteem the friend in God, on God's account to love even those who are hostile, to mourn at the affliction of a neighbor, not to exult in the death of one who is an enemy, this is the new creature whom the Master of the nations seeks with watchful eye amid the other disciples, saying:"If, then, any be in Christ a new creature, the old things are passed away. Behold all things are made new" (2 Cor. 5:17). 

St. Gregory the Great
