Syro-Catholic Patriarchal Exarchate of Jerusalem

.

In conformity with a decision made by the early Church, Jerusalem kept its status within the Syrian Church of Antioch as one of the vicariates of the Patriarchal See of Antioch. The Syrian Church, which united to Rome in 1659, established the Vicariate of Jerusalem in 1890. By a firman dated May 6, 1845, Ottoman Sultan Abdel Majid recognized the civil rights of the Syrian Catholic Patriarchate of Antioch in Jerusalem and in the Holy Land and exempted it from all taxes and customs.

The residence of the Exarchate shared the vicissitudes of the wars and revolutions that took place between 1900 and 1973.  It was successively transferred in 1948 from Damascus Gate in Jerusalem to Bethlehem and in 1965 from Bethlehem back to Jerusalem, to the present House of Abraham (Maison d’Abraham) at Ras El Amud – Silwan. In 1973, it purchased a property and settled definitively at 6 Chaldean Street.  In 1986 the church of Saint Thomas was built along with other facilities that include the Saint Thomas Center for Pilgrims and a Youth Center.

Most Rev. Grégoire Butros Jarweh 1810
