Theology on Tap


August 2022 - Effie Murphy - The Eastern and Roman Rites: Unity with Diversity

She will give us a brief overview of the Eastern Churches as well as share her own journey from the Eastern Orthodox Church to the Catholic Church.  Throughout history Eastern Catholics have endured tremendous persecution because of their faith in Christ.  In places like Eastern Europe (under Communism), the Middle East and Iraq.  Who are these “other” Catholics?  How did the Church split between east and west?  What is the relationship between the Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholics and Eastern Rite Catholics?
