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.

Transfiguration

You were transfigured on the mountain, O Christ God, * showing Your glory to Your Disciples as far as they were able to bear it. * Through the prayers of the Mother of God, * let Your everlasting Light shine also upon us sinners. * O Giver of Light, glory to You! (Troparion, Tone 7)

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

Upon the mountain You were transfigured, O Christ God, * and Your Disciples beheld Your glory as far as they could receive it, * so that when they would see You crucified, * they would understand that You suffered willingly; * and they would preach to the world * that You are truly the radiance of the Father. (Kontakion, Tone 7)
