Melkite Greek Catholic Church

Emigration to the West began around 1850, and 1889 saw the arrival of the first permanent priest in the USA. Even though a bishop was not assigned to America until 1966, a seminary was founded in Methuen, Massachusetts in 1954. Since Vatican II, dioceses have existed in America, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Australia and Venezuela. Owing to their lack of identity with a single national or ethnic group, and their willingness to use the vernaculars of their adopted homelands, in America the Melkites have had noticeable success in attracting new members. There, services were being conducted in English as early as 1951, in spite of objections from Roman Catholic authorities.
