Exarchy created for Ukrainian Catholics in Italy
July 11, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican has created an apostolic exarchy for Ukrainian Catholics in Italy, naming Cardinal Angelo De Donatis, the vicar for Rome, as administrator. An exarchy is an ecclesiastical jurisdiction for the Eastern Catholic churches, usually created temporarily until it can be formed as an eparchy, the equivalent of a diocese. There are about 70,000 Ukrainian Catholics now living in Italy.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above). About CWN news coverage.
