Website Maintenance 2016

We've been neglecting this website for quite some time now. We are therefore proud to announce that we are now at work to hopefully simplify matters, making it easier for our Eritrean visitors to browse the website by removing all English content and making everything wholly available in the Tigrinya language only. Please bear with us whilst this occurs and note that some English content will still merge and appear in an odd format next to the Tigrinya content.

Thank you for your patience in this matter.

A Brief History of the Eritrean Catholic Community in the Diocese of Leedsሓጺር ታሪክ ካቶሊካዊት ቤተ ክርስትያን ኪዳነ ምሕረት ሰበኻ ሊድስ

The Eritrean Catholic establishment originally started as a Catholic Community in Leeds UK during 2006. Initially, a few dedicated and devoted Eritrean Catholics started to meet and pray together at St. Aidan's Vicarage in Harehills, Leeds. They then continued their gathering at the current location; Holy Rosary Church in Chapeltown, Leeds.

From the installation of the Eritrean Catholic Community to the present time, nearly 60 children have received the Sacrament of Baptism. Their names are inserted in the Baptism Register of St. Anne’s Cathedral, as well as in the Eritrean specific registration book of Baptism. Indeed, under the guidance of the Chaplaincy, since 2010, more than 30 young people have prepared for the Sacrament of Marriage, and each year, two to three young people come to take a pre-marriage preparation course.

On 26th February 2011, the Eritrean Community officially celebrated for the first time, the feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help at the Holy Rosary Church. This feast is now celebrated annually by the Community.

Our Mother of Unfailing Help is a title given to the Blessed Virgin Mary, associated with a Byzantine icon of the same name, some time between the 13th and 15th century. The icon has been in Rome since at least the late 15th century, and is currently in the church of Sant'Alfonso di Liguori all'Esquilino. In the Eastern Orthodox Church, this iconography is known as the Theotokos of the Passion. We know it in Eritrea under the name of Kidane Mehret which literary means the Mary Covenant of Unfailing Mercy.

We inherited the tradition of the Eastern Oriental Catholic Church. In the tradition of the Eritrean Church, Our Mother of Unfailing Help is widely celebrated as a great feast of the Church on 24th February every year. We venerate the name of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in order to guide us and protect us in our daily lives.

We hope that with the grace of Our Lord and with the intercession of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, we will continue to celebrate this special day for years to come.

In the meantime, we humbly ask for prayers for our Community and we would like to take this opportunity to extend an invitation to all those who are interested to learn more and to participate in the Oriental Rite to join us in our weekly or annual events.
