I looked at the church
this is the same church just a different website link through the archeparchy's
This church is thoroughly Catholic. it sounds like there might be some
confusion on someone's part.
This church is in the Metropolitan Archeparchy of Pittsburg, PA
Archbishop William C. Skurla, D.D. is
the fifth Metropolitan
Archbishop of the Archeparchy of Pittsburgh and head of the Byzantine Catholic
(Ruthenian) Metropolitan Church sui iuris of Pittsburgh, the only
Eastern Catholic Metropolitan Church sui iuris (self-governing) in the
United States. He was enthroned on April 18, 2012 at the Cathedral of St. John
the Baptist in Munhall, Pa.
This bishop reports directly to the the Vatican to the Congregation for Eastern
Churches...he is directly under the authority of the pope and was appointed by the pope/vatican
This bishop is in the Byzantine Ruthenian rite
Where the confusion may lie is that there are other Byzantine rites, such as
the Byzantine Melkite rite. The Melkites have a patriarch who is is not under
the juridical authority of the pope, nor is the melkite patriarch appointed by
the pope. When there is a vacancy in the Melkite church, the Melkite elector
bishops come together in conclave and elect a new patriarch when upon
assumption of his new office as patriarch sends a letter to the pope announcing
his election and extending further communion with the Pope. In no wise needing
the pope's approval or authorization but as a brother to a brother. The Melkites have done this for centuries and never once has communion been broken, almost 400 years ago they reconfirmed that the melkites and rome had always been in communion, even if rapid communication was not always possible in the days before the telephone.
let me know if that helps
so yes you can go to this church and receive communion and any other sacrament as it is a fully in communion catholic church
this church is not in diocese of pittsburgh for the roman catholics but the archeparchy pittsburg for the byzantine ruthenians....two different bishops but when they are in communion with each other.
