Chaldean Catholic Church grows in California
January 07, 2016
Its numbers on the rise as Iraqi Christians emigrate to the United States, the Chaldean Eparchy of St. Peter the Apostle-- an Eastern Catholic diocese whose territory includes 19 states-- now has ten parishes and two missions in California alone, according to the magazine of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association.
The city of El Cajon has “two convents, a monastery and a seminary alongside a catechetical program serving 1,000 children, who learn to pray and celebrate the Qurbana, the Eucharistic liturgy of the Chaldean Church, in a modern form of the Aramaic language,” the magazine reported.
