Experiment: Liturgy and art of Greek Catholic church

What do you know about Greek Catholics?

If you want to learn more about it, you should come to Križevci, one of the oldest medieval towns in northern Croatia.

Did you know that both Catholics of the Eastern Rite (Greek Catholics) and Catholics of the Western Rite (Roman Catholics) are part of the same large Church family.

You should know that the living Church of Christ has developed and changed from the very beginning in different ways. This is why the Christian East and West are different in singing, dressing and painting sacred images.

There are 22 Eastern Catholic Churches, which are in full communion with the Roman Church and its head, the Pope, and which are in their own right (sui iuris) and use one of the Eastern rites in worship.

In this city is located Diocese of Križevci, a diocese of the Catholic Church that brings together Catholics of the Byzantine-Slavic rite in the Republic of Croatia, the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Republic of Slovenia.

Also, this diocese preserves a very valuable library with very valuable book incunabula. It is estimated that there are only 2 percent of these printed books have survived in the world.

So, if you are curious what is the Byzantine rite, who are holy brothers Cyril and Methodius and what makes incunabula so valuable, you will find out if you join this experiment in Križevci.
