Greek Melkite Catholic Archeparchy of Akko

Posted by jean-paul | Catholic Dioceses Holy Land,Melkite Church Galilee | Wednesday 20 March 2019 9:34 am

.

Greek Melkite Catholic Archeparchy of Akko

.

Ptolemais-Acre, which had been visited by Saint Paul, quickly formed a Christian community that became a suffragant diocese of Tyr until the end of the Crusades, after which it remained without a resident bishop.

In 1752, the see was restored as a Melkite diocese by Patriarch Cyril VI Tanas and attached once again to Tyr, which had become independent from Jerusalem.  However, the Melkite bishops of Acre began to reside there only in 1804.

 Before 1932, the jurisdiction of Acre included Transjordan.  The see became an archeparchy (archdiocese) on November 18, 1954 and includes all of Galilee.   

.
