Kick-off Start in Blogspot

Friday, May 27, 2011

Most of all, I would like to thank my comrade admins Gino and Jared which has start all endeavor we have on having the Eastern Catholic Community here in the Philippines where there are transient communities, mostly of Syro Malabar Catholics, most of their priests have bi-ritual faculty and some smaller communities of Maronites who have been absorbed to the Roman Catholic Church.Since last October, we have been striving so hard to let majority of Roman Rite Filipinos know that there is also the other lung of the Catholic Church, which is the East.

We also face trials and challenges as the then twin group and fan page of Eastern Rite Catholic Filipino progress until outsiders around the Eastern Catholic side came to help in anyways possible, mostly Priests, Religious, Laity and even a Bishop came to support our interest. Then later on I was advice by the Vicar General of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Eparchy of Australia, New Zealand and Oceania, Very Rev. Olexander Kenez, to form a study group that we might have a massive information drive about Eastern Catholic Churches, plus to this are very few Filipino Eastern Catholics living in North America, mostly are under the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, the largest sui iuris Church with 10 million adherents headed by His Beatitude Sviatoslav Shevchuk, Major Archbishop of Kyiv-Galicia.

I also thank the 95 Members of the Group and the 296 fan page member for the unceasing support and for liking or joining either of the Fan Page and the Group. Knowing how the Eastern Catholic Churches are not being promoted cause of some do not appreciate it

Eastern Rite Catholic Filipino - Group

The primary aim of this blog is not just to have a massive information drive but to promote the Eastern Christian Theology and Spirituality, which is the basis of the Eastern Catholics, for their teachings are heavily based to the Works of the Church Fathers of the East, namely the Cappadocian Fathers and the 3 Holy Hierarchs and Patristic influence of other Eastern Doctors.

We will also will update of news around Eastern Catholicism. Again I thank you all of those that we will promote this blog and our advocacy! + CHRISTO VOKRESE, VOISTUNI VOKRESE
