Pope raises Byzantine-rite Hungarian Catholic Church to status of sui juris metropolitan see

March 20, 2015

Pope Francis has reorganized the hierarchy of the Byzantine-rite Hungarian Catholic Church, raising it to the level of a sui juris metropolitan Church.

The Pope has raised the Eparchy of Hajdúdorog to the status of a metropolitan see, naming Bishop Fülöp Kocsis as its metropolitan. He also raised the Apostolic Exarchate of Miskolc to the status of an Eparchy, to be headed by Bishop Atanaz Orosz. Finally he erected the Eparchy of Nyiregyhaza from territory previously within the See of Hajdúdorog. The two eparchies are suffragens of the Hajdüdorog see.
