St. Basil the Great Los Gatos
St. Basil the Great Los Gatos

Our family visited our longtime friend Father Anthony Hernandez at St. Basil the Great Byzantine Catholic Church for the double-feast of the circumcision of Christ and of St. Basil the Great – my youngest boy’s namesake!​

St. Basil the Great is a Parish of the Ruthenian Catholic Church, a Church in full communion with Rome. The parish is part of the Byzantine Catholic Eparchy of the Holy Protection of Mary (Phoenix) and the Metropolia of Pittsburgh. They celebrate Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.
