The Catholic Church is in fact a communion of sister Churches which in total beautifully reflect the universal nature of the Catholic Church. The Roman Catholic Church, albeit the largest, is one of 27+ Catholic Churches (formerly called rites) which pray and worship according to different styles and traditions. These are traditions which developed long ago in vastly different areas of the world and which today represent a different approach to worship, theology and spirituality within the Catholic Communion of Churches. We often say that these Churches all have unity especially of doctrine but not uniformity of prayer and worship. They are all in full communion with the Pope.

One can then say that the Catholic Church is made up of the Roman Catholic Church and 21+ other Eastern Catholic Churches of equal dignity each of which uses its own name. The greater number of these 21+ Eastern Catholic Churches follows the Byzantine tradition and so they are often called Byzantine Catholic Churches and sometimes use other names as well. Ss. Cyril and Methodius Church in Berwick belongs to the Ukrainian Catholic Church and welcomes all who seek to worship according to its rich Byzantine tradition. We see it as our unique mission to provide area residents with this beautiful and very Catholic approach to prayer and worship.
