You are correct because Mukachevo only came with Uzhhorod, not the Union of Brest. I was only thinking about the American situation.

I'm Greek Orthodox by baptism.

I have attended a UGCC church for a few years and attended a Byzantjne Catholic church and gone to youth retreats, pilgrimages, etc, for a couple years.

My experience is that the BCC and their people are less latinized and more zealously eastern (I e. No filioque, etc.). My experience is that the BCC is more patristic and traditionally eastern than Greek Orthodox which I found to be pretty modernized and liberal here in the USA (Elder Ephraim's athonite style monasteries excepted of course).

Also, around here (pacific northwest) all the BCC churches were founded by one man who is ultra zealous and eastern minded, which could be a contributing factor.

Seems like more people need to be updated regarding the Eastern Catholic Churches. The Italian version of the Wikipedia page for Eastern Catholic Churches [it.wikipedia.org] no longer lists the Albanian Greek Catholic Church as "sui iuris". I am guessing the sole Byzantine-Rite Parish in Elbasan is now on a similar status as that of the Byzantine-Slavic-Rite Parish of Kostomloty in Poland. Interestingly however, the Byzantine-Rite Apostolic Administration of Kazakhstan and Central Asia is now considered its own Church sui iuris after previously being assigned under the Ruthenian Greek Catholic Church. The GCatholic website had also taken these [gcatholic.org] into account already.

How about just starting with a unified Byzantine Catholic hierarchy in the USA?
