Changes at the Melbourne Eparchy of the UGCC in Australia

The successor to the longtime eparch Bishop Petro Stasiuk will be his young fellow from the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer Mykola Bychok.

On Wednesday, January 15, 2020, the Vatican announced that Pope Francis had accepted the abdication of the pastoral position, delivered by Petro Stasiuk, C.Ss.R, Bishop of the UGCC Eparchy of Saints Peter and Paul of Melbourne, Australia. At the same time, the Holy Father appointed Fr. Mykola Bychok (a C.Ss.R hieromonk and a parish associate at the Parish of St. John the Baptist in Newark, US) as the new eparchial bishop.
