The Armenian Catholic Church
Catholic Church
(Armenian: Հայ Կաթողիկէ Եկեղեցի, translit. Hay Kat’oġikē Ekeġec’i; Latin: Ecclesia armeno-catholica), alternatively known as the Armenian Uniate Church,[2][3] is one of the Eastern particular churches sui iuris of the Catholic Church. They accept the leadership of the Bishop of Rome, known as the papal primacy, and therefore are in full communion with the Catholic Church, including both the Latin Church

and the 22 other Eastern Catholic Churches. The Armenian Catholic Church

is regulated by Eastern canon law, namely the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches. The head of the sui iuris Armenian Catholic Church

History[edit] The 451 Council of Chalcedon
Council of Chalcedon
caused problems for the Armenian Apostolic Church which formally broke off communion with the Chalcedonian Churches at the 3th Synod of Dvin, some Armenian bishops and congregations especially the Church of Caucasian Albania

made attempts to restore communion with the Chalcedonian Churches. During the Crusades, the church of the Armenian kingdom of Cilicia

entered into a union with the Catholic Church, an attempt that did not last. The union was later re-established during the Council of Florence

in 1439, but did not have any real effects for centuries. Some Armenians

converted to Roman Catholicism in the absence of any specific Armenian Catholic Church. In Medieval China, Armenians
Armenians
in China were converted to Catholicism by John of Montecorvino in Beijing and there was also an Armenian Franciscan Catholic community in Quanzhou. In 1740, Abraham-Pierre I Ardzivian, who had earlier become a Catholic, was elected as the patriarch of Sis. Two years later Pope Benedict XIV
Benedict XIV
formally established the Armenian Catholic Church. In 1749, the Armenian Catholic Church

in 1915–1918 the Church scattered among neighboring countries, mainly Lebanon

in 1630s after the union by the Armenian bishop of Leopolis - Nicholas (Polish: Mikołaj) Torosowicz, who established bonds with the Roman Catholic Church. The community which had been historically centered in Galicia as well as in the pre-1939 Polish borderlands in the east, was after World War II

expelled to present-day Poland and now has three parishes: in Gdańsk, in Gliwice and in Warsaw. Liturgy

is also used by both the Armenian Apostolic Church

and by a significant number of Eastern Catholic Christians in the Republic of Georgia. It is patterned after the directives of Saint Gregory the Illuminator, founder and patron saint of the Armenian Church. Unlike the Byzantine Church, churches of the Armenian rite are usually devoid of icons and have a curtain concealing the priest and the altar from the people during parts of the liturgy. The use of bishop's mitre and of unleavened bread is reminiscent of the influence Western missionaries once had upon both the miaphysite Orthodox Armenians
Armenians
as well as upon the Armenian Rite

Armenian Catholics originated in what is today Armenia, Georgia and Eastern Europe. Beginning in the late 1920s, persecution caused many Armenian Catholics to emigrate. In 1991, after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Bishop of Rome, Pope
Pope
John Paul II merged the communities in Georgia and Russia with those in Armenia, creating a new ordinariate of Armenia
Armenia
and Eastern Europe, with its residence in Gyumri. The city was not chosen by chance: Most Catholic Armenians
Armenians
live in the northern parts of Armenia. This has become a kind of basis for fence-mending with the coreligionists on the other side of the border. Today Catholic Armenians
Armenians
of Samtskhe-Javakhq live together in Akhaltsikhe and in the nearby villages, as well as in the regions of Akhalkalak and Ninotsminda. The communities in the last two regions, which are mainly rural, are in rather distant areas, but the most important link is the historical memory of Catholicism. A small seminary was established in Gyumri, Armenia, in 1994; there candidates for the priesthood engage in basic studies before moving to the Pontifical College of the Armenians
Armenians
(established 1885) in Rome, where they pursue philosophy and theology. United States and Canada[edit] See also: Armenian American

Presently, around 1.5 million Armenians

from Western Armenia, mainly from the towns and cities of Karin (Erzurum), Constantinople, Mardin etc., came to the United States seeking employment. At the end of the same century, many survivors of the Hamidian Massacres

had concentrated in several U.S. cities, chiefly in New York. Catholic Armenian communities were also founded in New Jersey, Boston, Detroit, Los Angeles, and other cities of California. Catholic Armenian educational organizations were also founded in many cities. In Philadelphia

Benedict XVI's decision, the Catholic Exarchate of the USA and Canada was advanced to the status of a diocese. It serviced 35,000 Catholic Armenians

in the United States and some 10,000 in Canada. The bishop, or eparch, of the diocese, which has jurisdiction over Canadian and American Catholics who are members of the Armenian Catholic Church, became Manuel Batakian. According to a Monday, May 23, 2011 news release by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Pope
Pope
Benedict XVI, named Archpriest
Archpriest
Mikaël Antoine Mouradian, superior of the Convent of Notre Dame in Bzommar, Lebanon, as the new bishop of the Eparchy of Our Lady of Nareg in New York for Armenian Catholics. The appointment of Lebanon-born Bishop Mouradian was publicized in Washington, May 21, by Archbishop
Archbishop
Pietro Sambi, Apostolic Nuncio to the United States.[4] France[edit] Next to North America, France holds the largest number of Armenian Catholics outside of the areas of the Middle East and Oriental Europe. The Eparchy of Sainte-Croix-de-Paris was established in 1960 with Bishop Garabed Armadouni as exarch. Since 1977, the eparchy has been led by Bishop Krikor Gabroyan. There are some 30,000 Armenian Catholics in the eparchy, the headquarters of which is in Paris. The eparchy has six churches apart from the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Paris: Arnouville-lès-Gonesse, Lyon, Marseille, Saint-Chamond, Sèvres

According to an 1842 article by C. W. Russell in The Dublin Review there were 150,000 Armenian Catholics worldwide.[5] Malachia Ormanian, a historian and an Armenian Apostolic Patriarch
Patriarch
of Constantinople, counted 135,900 Armenian Catholics worldwide: 84,500 (62%) in the Ottoman Empire, 30,000 (21%) in the Russian Empire, and 21,400 (16%) elsewhere, mostly in central Europe.[6] The 1897 imperial census in Russia found 38,840 Catholic Armenians,[7] while 1914 Ottoman government statistics provided 67,838 as the number of Catholic Armenians.[8][9] According to Annuario Pontificio, the annual directory of the Holy See, the church had 142,853 followers worldwide. The number rose to 736,956 in 2015 according to the same source.[10] The 2011 census in Armenia
