History of the eparchy

The eparchy was previously an apostolic exarchate which was established by Pope John Paul II in 1982 in order to formally organize the Romanian Catholic parishes that had long existed in the US under many different Roman Rite dioceses However, in 1987, the apostolic exarchate for Romanian Catholics in America was promoted to the status of an eparchy The eparchy is the only diocese of the Romanian Catholic Church outside Romania and is directly subject to the Holy See

In 2005, Holy Resurrection Monastery was transferred from the Ruthenian Catholic Church to the eparchy at the request of the monks and with the consent of the Holy See Around the same time Bishop John Michael blessed the canonical establishment of Holy Theophany Monastery as a monastic community of nuns
