The Roman Catholic Church in Armenia is part of the worldwide Roman Catholic Church, under the spiritual leadership of the Pope and curia in Rome. There are around 110,000 Catholics in Armenia, representing about 4% of the total population.
There are two territorial jurisdictions in the country - an Apostolic Administration for those of the Latin Rite and an ordinariate for the faithful of eastern rite for those of the Armenian Rite. The latter covers other Catholics in Eastern Europe of the Armenian rite.
The Catholics have always lived somewhat separate from the Armenian Apostolic communities, and intermarriage is not very common. Some of the Apostolics refer to the Armenian Catholics as "Franks," which derives from the influence of French Catholic missionaries in the region.
