Syrian Catholic Apostolic Exarchate For Canada

The Syriac Catholic Apostolic Exarchate of Canada (informally Canada of the Syriacs) is an Apostolic exarchate (Eastern Catholic missionary pre-diocesan jurisdiction) of the Syriac Catholic Church sui iuris (West Syriac Rite in Syriac language) covering Canada.

It is exempt, i.e. directly subject to the Holy See (notably the Roman Congregation for the Oriental Churches), not part of any ecclesiastical province.

History

On the same day, Antoine Nassif was appointed eparch-elect and titular bishop of Serigene. He was ordained as bishop on 23 January 2016.[1]
