United States

The Byzantine or Ruthenian Catholic Church in the United States is a Church sui iuris of Metropolitan rank and is comprised of four canonical jurisdictions:

  • Metropolitan Archeparchy of Pittsburgh of the Ruthenians  
  • Eparchy of Parma of the Ruthenians  
  • Eparchy of Passaic of the Ruthenians
  • Eparchy of the Holy Protection of Mary in Phoenix of the Ruthenians (formerly the Eparchy of Van Nuys of the Ruthenians)

In addition to its constituent Ruthenian Greek-Catholic faithful, the Metropolia was charged historically with the pastoral care of all Greek-Catholics in the United States of the Croat, Hungarian, and Slovak Greek-Catholic Churches sui iuris.

The Metropolia is unique in being the sole Church sui iuris to have its primatial See situated in the diaspora, rather than in its historic, ancestral, homeland. The absence of a formal canonical relationship between the Metropolia and the Ruthenian Greek-Catholic Eparchy of Mukachevo effectively means that each is a Church sui iuris onto itself, albeit the two are typically counted as a single entity in enumerating such Churches.

Like other Eastern Catholic jurisdictions of less than patriarchal status, the Metropolitan Archeparchy is canonically subject to the Congregation for the Oriental Churches.

Protection of the Mother of God

Protected by your coming, O Mother of God, * the faithful people celebrate today with splendor, * and, gazing at your most pure image, * we say with compunction: * "Shield us with your precious veil * and deliver us from all evil * imploring your Son, Christ our God, to save our souls.” (Troparion - Tone 4)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Today the Virgin stands forth in the Church, * and with the choirs of saints she invisibly prays to God for us. * The Angels worship with the hierarchs, * and the apostles exult with the prophets, * because, in our behalf, the Mother of God entreats the pre-eternal God. (Kontakion - Tone 3)

The Church celebrates the Feast of the Protection of the Mother of God on October 1st.
