Romanian Greek-Catholic Uniate Church
The Romanian Church United with Rome, Greek-Catholic (Romanian: Biserica Română Unită cu Roma, Greco-Catolică) is a sui iuris Eastern Catholic Church, in full union with the Roman Catholic Church. It has the rank of a Major Archiepiscopal Church and it uses the Byzantine liturgical rite in the Romanian language.
Since 1994, Cardinal Lucian Mureșan, Archbishop of Făgăraş and Alba Iulia serves as head of the Romanian Greek-Catholic Church. On December 16, 2005, as the Romanian Church United with Rome, Greek-Catholic was elevated to the rank of a Major Archiepiscopal Church by Benedict XVI, Lucian Mureşan became its first Major Archbishop. Mureşan was eventually created a cardinal, at the Consistory of February 18, 2012.
Besides the Archeparchy of Fǎgǎraş and Alba Iulia, there are four more Greek-Catholic eparchies in Romania: (Eparchy of Oradea Mare, Eparchy of Cluj-Gherla, Eparchy of Lugoj and Eparchy of Maramureş), as well as one eparchy overseas, the Romanian Catholic Eparchy of St George's in Canton, answering directly to the Major Archbishop and the Holy See, in the United States of America and Canada.
According to data published in the 2007 Annuario Pontificio, the Romanian Greek-Catholic Church had 763,000 members, 8 bishops, 1239 parishes, some 747 diocesan priests and 274 seminarians of its own rite at the end of 2005. However, according to the 2002 Romanian government census, the number of its followers living in Romania was as low as 191,556. The dispute over this figure is mentioned in the United States Department of State report on religious freedom in Romania.
In addition, there are five other Catholic dioceses in Romania, belonging to the Latin Church, whose members are more numerous.
