First Greek Catholic Liturgy in Bangkok

46
For the first time ever, a Greek Catholic (Byzantine Rite) liturgy will be celebrated in Bangkok, Thailand. Three Greek Catholic priests of the Redemptorist Order are visiting our country and have graciously offered to celebrate the Divine Liturgy (Mass) for us.
 
The Divine Liturgy is one of the services of the Eastern Catholic Churches. These Churches are in full communion with Rome, and their Sacraments may be received by all Catholics.
 
On Sunday (November 20th), the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom will be celebrated at Holy Redeemer Church at 14.30. It will be celebrated in Ukrainian and English. If possible, some Thai language will also be included.
 
All are invited to attend! Please also bring your friends and family! We hope to see you there!

Thank you to all for coming to our first ever Greek Catholic service in Thailand! Seven of us (from Thailand, the Philippines, and the US) joined together in prayer, thanking Christ for the many gifts bestowed upon us.

With the help of a new member, we began the afternoon with a brief explanation of the icons at the front of the church. As well, we had a brief talk about the service: the Akathist of Thanksgiving.

Thereafter, we prayed the akathist service together. Everyone joined in and sang many words of thanks to Christ. We sang and prayed in English, Thai, and Tagalog.

When the service ended, the members came forward to kiss and venerate the icons (holy pictures) of Christ and of the Most Holy Theotokos (Mary).

We concluded the day with a meeting and snacks. Thank you again to all who came, participated, and prayed with us. (And a special thanks to those taking the photos!)

Our next service and meeting will be at the beginning of March. Please visit our blog again for updates.
