Byzantine Ukrainian Faithful of France given Eparchy

VATICAN CITY, January 21, 2013 (Zenit.org).

Benedict XVI has elevated the apostolic exarchate for Ukrainian faithful of the Byzantine rite resident in France to the rank of eparchy (diocese). The new eparchy has the title: Saint Wladimir-Le-Grand de Paris des Byzantins-Ukrainiens. Bishop Borys Andrij Gudziak, until now apostolic exarch there, was named the first eparchial bishop. An apostolic exarchate in the Eastern Catholic Church is similar to an apostolic vicariate in the Latin Rite Catholic Church. It is headed by a titular bishop as its ordinary with the title of exarch.

With the elevation of the Ukrainian apostolic exarchate in France to the rank of eparchy, Bishop Gudziak is no longer the titular bishop of Carcabia but becomes the first bishop of the new Eparchy (Diocese) of Saint Wladimir-Le-Grand. Borys Andrij Gudziak was born in 1960 in Syracuse, New York, was ordained to the priesthood in 1998, and received episcopal ordination in 2012. For many years he served as the widely respected rector of the Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv, famous for its Ecumenical Institute and its Business School.
