Eritrean Catholic Community
Kidane Mehret (The Our Lady of Perpetual Help) is an Eritrean Catholic Community in Dallas Metroplex in Texas. It was formed by Eritrean origin members over twenty years ago. The purpose of the community is to bring together the Eritrean-Americans who live in Dallas and Fort Worth Texas for prayer and worship in Tigrigna language and Ge-ez rite. Geez is an ancient South Semitic language that originated in Eritrea and the northern region of Ethiopia in the Horn of Africa. The Geez Rite remains today the main language used in the liturgy of few churches in the Eastern Rites. The monthly meeting helps us grow in our faith and is an opportunity to get together with our fellow Eritrean brothers and sisters.
