Welcome to the web pages of the Holy Protection of Mary Byzantine Catholic Eparchy of Phoenix (formerly known as the Byzantine Catholic Eparchy of Van Nuys). The Byzantine Eparchy (Diocese) of Phoenix serves Ruthenian Catholics in the Western United States. We live and proclaim the Gospel of Our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ. Are you looking for a parish home? Maybe the opportunity to take part in some of our social, pastoral or educational ministries? Or maybe you wish to learn more about the teachings of the Catholic Church? Come join us as we worship the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Help us proclaim the Good News here in the West.
The bishop of the Eparchy is His Grace, Bishop Gerald Dino.
