Well, the Czech and Slovak Orthodox Churches have an excellent established tradition of being sensitive to four ethnicities within their fold: Ukrainian, Russian, Czech and Slovak and they publish their calendar in those languages.

This is a good news announcement to be sure and all the best to the Slovak Greek-Catholics!

I think that Alex has suggested a good solution to the problem of the different linguistic needs of this new metropolia. I am surprised by the harsh response of Vlad62. Insulting the Orthodox will not help solve the problem in the Eastern Catholic metropolia. Maybe the Christians in Slovakia can learn something from the good relationship between ACROD and the Byzantine Catholic Church in the USA.
Also failing to see that there is a problem (Rusyn language and cultural rights) will also not help the situation.

VATICAN CITY, 30 JAN 2008 (VIS) - The Holy Father:

...

- Reorganised the Greek-Catholic Slovak Church, making it a "sui iuris" Metropolitan Church and adopting the following provisions:

- Elevating the eparchy of Presov for Catholics of Byzantine rite (Catholics 137,203, priests 259, permanent deacons 1, religious 111) to the status of metropolitan see and promoting Bishop Jan Babjak S.J. of Presov to the office of metropolitan archbishop. The archbishop-elect was born in Hazin nad Chirochou, Slovakia in 1953, he was ordained a priest in 1978 and consecrated a bishop in 2003.

- Elevating the apostolic exarchate of Kosice for Catholics of Byzantine rite (Catholics 81,132, priests 161, permanent deacons 3, religious 65) to the status of eparchy, making it a suffragan of the metropolitan church of Presov, and appointing the current exarch, Bishop Milan Chautur C.SS.R., to the office of eparchal bishop.

- Erecting the eparchy of Bratislava for Catholics of Byzantine rite, making it a suffragan of the metropolitan church of Presov, and appointing Fr. Peter Rusnak, pastor of the Greek-Catholic parish of the Exaltation of the Cross in Bratislava and proto-preist of the proto-presbyterate of the same name, as first bishop of the new eparchy. The bishop-elect was born in Humenne, Slovakia in 1950, and ordained a priest in 1987.

Shlomo Lkhoolkhoon,

What will be interesting is if the Slovak eparchy in Canada is also incorporated into the new Archeparchal structure.
