The Eastern Catholic Churches

Bishop celebrating Divine Liturgy in Greek-Catholic church in Prešov, eastern Slovakia.

The Eastern Catholic Churches are a group of churches in communion with the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI. These churches make up 21 of the 22 rites that make up the Holy Catholic Church. They are not well known in America but they have beautiful traditions and customs. Understanding the subject is quite difficult.
I found the offical websites of these churches:
