Description: We at St. Nicholas Catholic Church welcome you to learn about our church, Rites and Traditions. We welcome you to join with us in the celebration of the Mysteries of Jesus Christ.
As the disciples brought the Gospel to different parts of the world, they adapted ceremonies of the Liturgy to the customs and music of that people. Ultimately, four great Centers of Christianity emerged with distinctive Christian customs, while following the same Faith. These Centers were located in the great cities of Jerusalem, Antioch, Rome and Alexandria.
A few centuries later when the capital of the Roman Empire was moved to the Eastern City of Byzantium and renamed Constantinople, an adaptation of the Antioch way of celebrating Liturgy was made. Thus, a new Center of Christianity arose in Constantinople and became known as the Byzantine Church. From Constantinople, the Slavic people of Eastern Europe were converted by Sts. Cyril and Methodius and followed Constantinople and are known as Eastern Catholic. Today, Eastern Catholics are subdivided into ecclesiastical jurisdictions based on ethnic groupings. The church of St. Nicholas in Orlando is in one of those subgroups called Ruthenian.
