Eastern Catholicism

Eastern Catholicism is a diverse branch of the Catholic Church that adheres to Eastern Christian traditions. Consisting of 23 autonomous churches that combine full communion with the Pope in Rome with distinct liturgical, theological, and cultural characteristics, it is an essential part of the broader Catholic communion. These churches trace their origins to the early Christian communities of the Eastern Roman Empire, and the majority belonged to other branches of Eastern Christian branches, such as the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Oriental Orthodox churches, before returning to communion with the Roman Catholic Church.
