On November 20th, at the invitation of The Greek Catholic Society of Thailand, three Redemptorist priests came to Bangkok and celebrated a Divine Liturgy in Byzantine Rite. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first Divine Liturgy in Bangkok and the first public Divine Liturgy anywhere in Thailand!

Through our online announcements and invitations, we had expected 10-15 people to come, but roughly 70 souls attended. Thais, Filipinos, Pakistanis, Europeans, Americans, and many others attended. We even had staff from the Ukrainian Embassy to Thailand.
