Welcome to the Dallas-Fort Worth Melkite Catholic Outreach
In a topsy-turvy world filled with so many trials, struggles, and disappointments, everyone needs a good word – a word of hope. Melkite Catholics offer that word: Christ is among us!
At the beginning of His public ministry, our Blessed Lord proclaimed: “Be converted (Metanoia) for the kingdom of Heaven has come near” (Mt 4:17).
Metanoia is a Greek word that means to change the way you are seeing. And why? The Kingdom is near. The Kingdom is a person – Jesus the Christ. How did the first Christians respond to this Good News – the Gospel? “They devoted themselves to the Apostles’ teaching and fellowship/communion, the breaking of the bread (Eucharist) and the prayers” (Acts 2:42).
Melkite Catholics have made those Scriptural words a lived reality for two thousand years. While in communion with the Bishop of Rome (Pope), Melkites are Antiochian Christians. They are, therefore, Eastern Christians rather than Western Christians. Antiochian Christians belong to the ancient Church of Antioch, that biblical land where God became Man, the region where the followers of Christ were first called Christians (Acts 11:26), and the region in which Saint Peter resided before going to Rome. Melkites have a rich and varied history noted for their love of Christ, the Apostolic Faith, and its communal life – a parish life that resembles a genuine family.
If you have found this webpage, then it is Providential. Maybe God is inviting you to explore the possibility to become a Melkite Catholic. Catholic means universal, therefore, you are invited; no one is excluded! We invite you to explore, peruse, and familiarize yourself with this webpage in order to have a glimpse into who we are.
Nonetheless, nothing replaces personal experience. Join us for prayer, to inquire/learn, and to socialize. Melkite Catholics are about community because God is a Communion of Persons. That is the heart and soul of what it means to be an authentic Catholic – to be a person of communion. It is, therefore, the identifying mark – the heart – of the Dallas-Fort Worth Melkite Outreach.
