St. Elias Melkite Catholic Church
Who We Are
We are a Melkite Catholic Church in Los Gatos, CA serving the entire San Jose Valley and Bay Area, CA. Please consider joining us for worship this Sunday at 11 am! The Melkite Catholic Church uses the Byzantine Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom for eucharistic worship throughout most of the year. Melkite Christians maintain the ancient eastern Christian traditions of a married priesthood, minor orders, and administering the rite of initiation, Baptism, Chrismation (Confirmation), and Communion together, and to infants. In its theology, prayer, chant, iconography, and sacred gestures, the Melkite Catholic Church is truly universal, traditional, and mystical.
