Greek Melkite Catholic Patriarchate of Jerusalem

.

The Greek Melkite Catholic Church in the Holy Land shares a common history with the Greek Orthodox Church.  This common history lasted until 1724 when the hierarchy was split in two in the three Melkite Patriarchates of Antioch, Alexandria, and Jerusalem.  Since that date, there have been parallel lines of Orthodox and Catholic Patriarchs, which explains why the Melkite Church is in full communion with the Church of Rome and, at the same time, deeply rooted in the Eastern tradition.

In 1772, the Greek Melkite Catholics of Jerusalem asked Patriarch Theodosius V Dahan of Antioch to come under his jurisdiction.  Pope Clement XIV responded favorably to their request.  Since 1938, the Greek Melkite Catholic Patriarch of Antioch carries the personal title of Alexandria and Jerusalem.

Greek Melkite Catholic Archeparchy

of Petra and Philadelphia

.

The Archeparchy was founded in 1932 by the Holy Synod of the Greek Melkite Catholic Church with the approval of the Holy See.  Until this date, the northern section of Transjordan came under the jurisdiction of the Archeparchy of Acre, while the southern section came under that of the Vicariate of Jerusalem.  The new see of Petra-Philadelphia became a Greek Melkite Catholic archeparchy with jurisdiction over Jordan and residence in Amman.
