How do I change rites?


Full Question

What is the process of "transferring" from Roman Catholic to Eastern Catholic? And what are the consequences if any?

Answer

There’s nothing wrong with changing rites if you so desire. It’s a bit of a hassle and really isn’t necessary. You can join an Eastern-rite parish without changing rites. However, if you still want to change rites, check with the pastor of the Eastern-rite parish you wish to join.
