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.

Christ is Risen!

Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and to those in the tombs bestowing life! (Troparion)

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

Although You descended into the tomb, O Immortal One, * You destroyed the power of Hades; * You arose as the victor, O Christ God, * proclaiming to the myrrh-bearing women: “Rejoice!” * And granting peace to Your Apostles, * O, You, Who gives resurrection to the fallen. (Kontakion)

Teachings of Christ

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." (Matthew 5:9 ESV)

Entry into Jerusalem

As we were buried with You through Baptism, O Christ our God, * we were made worthy of immortal life by Your Resurrection, * and we praise You in song, crying out: * “Hosanna in the highest! * Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the Lord.” (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.

As you were carried upon a throne in heaven and upon a colt on earth, * O Christ God, you accepted the praise of angels and the songs of children who cry out to You: * “Blessed are You Who has come to to call back Adam!” (Kontakion, Tone 6)

Random Proverb

"The wage of the righteous leads to life, the gain of the wicked to sin." (Proverbs 10:10 ESV)

Pray Without Ceasing

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

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

Why do you increase your bonds? Take hold of your life before your light grows dark and you seek help and do not find it. This life has been given to you for repentance; do not waste it in vain pursuits. 

St. Isaac the Syrian
