Please remember the Priest Kenneth Walker in your Prayers
May our gracious and merciful Lord, who rose from the dead, Christ, our True God, through the intercessions of His Holy Mother and of all the Saints, establish the soul of His departed servant in the mansions of the righteous; give rest in the bosom of Abraham, and number his soul among the just, and have mercy upon us and save us.
Eternal be Your memory Fr. Walker!
“In Antioch the disciples were for the first time called Christians” (Acts 11:26).

The Melkite Greek Catholic Church traces its history back to the Ancient Christian Patriarchate of Antioch, Syria. As the Christian Faith began to spread beyond Jerusalem and Judea, through the preaching of the Apostles, the city of Antioch became a major center of Christianity, and as the New Testament records, it was “in Antioch the disciples were for the first time called Christians” (Acts 11:26). The term “Melkite,” from the Arabic word malik, meaning ‘king,’ refers to the Orthodox Christians of the Antiochian Patriarchate who accepted the decree of the Fourth Ecumenical Council held in the city of Chalcedon (451 AD). The Melkite Catholic Church uses the Byzantine Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom for eucharistic worship. Antiochian Christians maintain the ancient orthodox Christian traditions of a married priesthood, minor orders, and administering the rite of initiation, Baptism, Chrismation (Confirmation), and Communion together, and to infants. In its theology, prayer, chant, iconography, and sacred gestures, the Melkite Church is truly universal, traditional, and mystical.
