Russian Byzantine Catholic Congregations in North America - In full communion with Pope Francis I, Bishop of Rome
Our little monastic community is small but growing!  
We titularly belong to the Papal Visitator for Belarusian Catholic Congregations Abroad, but minister to ALL Eastern Rite Catholics in full communion with the Pope of Rome.

His Holiness Pope Francis I
His Holiness Pope Francis I

Bishop of Rome

OEcumenical Patriarch of the West

Supreme Pontiff of the Catholic Church around the world
Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom will be celebrated Sunday mornings at 10:00 A.M.  (When new monastic facilities open in Pahrump, Nevada).

Divine Liturgy of Saint Basil the Great will be celebrated on Duodenary Feasts where it is appointed, in common usage among the Eastern Churches of the Byzantine Rite. 

Check first before coming!  St. John Chrysostom Belarusian Byzantine Catholic Monastery will also be used as a Clergy Retreat Center (when built) Holy Day Liturgies not always scheduled - Depends on availability of Priests.


In the mean time, visit our sister parishes:

Russian Byzantine Catholic
Congregations in North America
Titularly under the omophorion of the Russian Byzantine Catholic Apostolic Exarch (See currently Vacant since the death of Bishop Klymentiy Sheptytskyi ), or their Local Ordinary in the USA (Roman Catholic diocesan bishop).


       There currently is no Papal Appointment for a Hierarch to govern the Russian or Belarusian Byzantine Catholic Congregations in the USA.  Some such parishes and missions may titularly fall under the Russian Catholic Apostolic Exarchate(currently a Vacant See), but are administered by their local Roman Catholic Diocesan Ordinary in America, or other Eastern Rite Catholic Eparchy, wherever they are located.  A Russian Exarch is prayed for to be appointed at some point in the future by Pope Francis and the Dicastery for the Eastern Churches at the Vatican.
       Such parishes and missions in this country are technically only an unofficial association of Russian and Belarusian Congregations in North America, not an actual eparchy or other jurisdiction, because we have never been canonically erected as such by the Pope of Rome.
