The Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Saint Vladimir the Great of Paris (French: Éparchie Saint Vladimir le Grand de Paris des Ukrainiens) is an eparchy (diocesis) for Ukrainian Greek Catholics, who practice their particular Church's Ukrainian language Byzantine Rite in France, Belgium, Luxemburg, the Netherlands and Switzerland.
The eparchy was erected on 22 July 1960 as Apostolic exarchate for the French, Benelux and Swiss faithful of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.
In January 19, 2013 the Exarchate was elevated in the rank of the Eparchy (Eastern Catholic diocese) by Pope Benedict XVI. It remains immediately subject to the Major Archbishop of Kyiv–Halyč, without belonging to his Metropolitan province.
