Eastern Christians in France


France has a long history of interest in Eastern Christians. French people must take an interest in Eastern Churches in France; to learn about them, recognise them, and meet them. They must they (répetition, à supprimer) realise that they have a wealth of heritage on their doorstep. There are Eastern Catholic communities living in towns all over France — from Paris, to Lyon, and Marseille — and worshipping every Sunday.” 

– Monsignor Pascal Gollnisch, Managing Director of l’Œuvre d’Orient.

These Eastern Catholic communities, which represent more than 200,000 Christians, have been highly affected by the crisis currently playing out in the Near East, and their congregations have swelled recently with the influx of refugees over the last few years.
