In charge of Hebrew-Catholic Community


Parishes of Hebrew Catholic Vicariate

            The Apostolate of Saint James the Apostle was approved by Patriarch Alberto Gori on February 11, 1955, and its statutes one year later, to answer the needs of the Hebrew-speaking Catholics.  It had two main purposes:
-     The creation of centers for the Hebrew-speaking communities where the liturgy is conducted in the Hebrew language and where the faithful can gather in a friendly atmosphere.
-     The rapprochement between Christians and Jews carried out in conjunction with the Judeo-Christian Friendship Association (Amitiés judéo-chrétiennes) both in Israel and abroad.

            The Apostolate of Saint James the Apostle is now known as the Hebrew-Catholic Vicariate.
