The Eastern Catholic Churches are autonomous Christian churches. They recognize the Bishop of Rome as their spiritual leader, like the Roman Catholics. They also agree with Roman Catholicism on most issues. They differ on ideas as how a mass should be organised, or which prayers are more important than others. A very well-known Eastern Catholic Church is the Coptic Catholic Church. That Church is mainly in Egypt.

In total there are 23 such churches, the probably best known are listed below:
