(Former) St. George's Syrian Melkite Greek Catholic Church, Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States

The former St. George's Syrian Catholic Church is the most significant remnant of the Lower Manhattan immigrant enclave known as the "Syrian Quarter/’ the "Mother Colony” of Syrians and Lebanese in America. Immigrants from the
former Ottoman province of Syria, which included modern-day Syria and Lebanon, began coming to this country in the 1880s, and over the next 40 years, thousands of them settled on and around lower Washington Street in a neighborhood that was their commercial and cultural center in the United States.

Nearly half of these immigrants were Melkite Greek Catholics, who recognize the primacy of the Pope but worship using the Byzantine Rite.

In addition to its far-reaching commercial influence, Manhattan’s Syrian Quarter was a cultural center of national importance, the “literary capital of the Arabic world in the United States.” Several Arabic-language newspapers were published there, including Al-Hoda, which was founded in 1898 and considered the country’s most important Arabic paper; the Syrian World, the first English-language Syrian-American journal, was headquartered on lower Greenwich Street. New York was also the home of the Pen League, an influential literary group whose “experiments with Western literary forms revolutionized Arabic poetry in the Arab world,” and whose members, the celebrated Khalil Gibran and William Catzeflis, were frequently published in the Syrian World.

But the Goverment still keep many buildings belong to the churches and dont want to return them. Vatican keep asking Vietnamese Goverment to return all the buildings which's one time belong to the churches.
Thank you for the information. Interesting.

Sainte Bernadette du Banlay, France

This concrete, Catholic church was designed by Claude Parent in 1966. It's a pretty crazy church - the concept is about a bunker.
