Armenian Catholic parishes and missions in Brazil are subject to the Apostolic Exarchate of Latin America & Mexico for the Armenians, dually situated in Brazil and Uruguay. Like other Eastern and Oriental Catholic Church jurisdictions in the diaspora, the Exarchate is canonically subject to the Congregation for the Oriental Churches, except in matters liturgical, for which it is dependent on the Armenian Patriarch.

“Only one sin is nowadays severely punished: the attentive observance of the traditions of our Fathers. For that reason the good ones are thrown out of their places and brought to the desert.” (ep. 243)
