Pope Francis has reorganized the hierarchy of the Byzantine-rite Hungarian Catholic Church, raising it to the level of a sui juris metropolitan Church, catholicculture.org reports.
The catholicculture.org said, the Pope has raised the Eparchy of Hajdudorog to the status of a metropolitan see, naming Bishop Fulop Kocsis as its metropolitan. He also raised the Apostolic Exarchate of Miskolc to the status of an Eparchy, to be headed by Bishop Atanaz Orosz. Finally he erected the Eparchy of Nyiregyhaza from territory previously within the See of Hajdudorog. The two eparchies are suffragens of the Hajdudorog see.
