600th anniversary of Roman Catholic see in Ukraine

Catholic World News - June 04, 2012

Pope Benedict XVI appointed Cardinal Angelo Comastri, archpriest of St. Peter’s Basilica and vicar general for Vatican City, as his special envoy to the closing celebration of the Ukrainian National Eucharistic Congress, which began on May 26 and concluded in Lviv on June 3.

The congress commemorated the 600th anniversary of the establishment of the nation’s leading Roman Catholic see, the Archdiocese of Lviv of the Latins.

According to Vatican statistics, 4.9 million of the nation’s 46.1 million people are Catholic. The nation has seven Roman Catholic dioceses, ten Ukrainian Greek Catholic eparchies (dioceses), a Ruthenian Catholic eparchy, and an Armenian Catholic eparchy.
