Meeting in Monroe, Louisiana!

The Byzantine Catholic Outreach of Monroe is an outreach of St. Basil the Great Byzantine Catholic Church (Irving, TX.) located in Monroe, Louisiana. Under the supervision of the Very Rev. Fr. Elias Rafaj, we come together to pray according to the Byzantine Catholic tradition. All Catholics of any rite, or even non-Catholics, are welcome to attend the services.

If you would like to more information about Eastern Catholicism visit the Resources page.

If you would like to know when the next service will be, visit the Services page.

If you have questions, or would like to attend one of the services, visit the Contact page.

“If you are in the Northeast area of Louisiana and want to deepen your prayer life with the beautiful riches of Eastern Christianity, you will love the Byzantine Catholic Outreach of Monroe.”

– Michael Lofton, Host of Reason & Theology
