Catholic Byzantine Mass returns to Lewes June 26

June 10, 2022

The Rev. Volodymyr Klanichka, pastor of St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church in Wilmington, will once again come to Lewes to celebrate the divine liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, the Catholic Byzantine rite eucharistic liturgy, at 5:30 p.m. on the last Sunday of each summer month, June 26, July 31 and Aug. 28.

Mass will be held at St. Jude the Apostle Roman Catholic Church at 152 Tulip Drive, Lewes, off northbound Route 1.

The Catholic Byzantine rite eucharistic liturgy is enjoyed by many Catholics of Eastern European background and is specifically practiced by many visiting international students at the Delaware beaches.

The Byzantine rite is celebrated under the auspices of the pope and in communion with the Roman Catholic Church. The mass is in English and will fulfill a Catholic’s Sunday obligation. All are welcome. To learn more, call 302-762-5511.
