The Latin Archdiocese of Lviv (Latin: Archidioecesis Leopolitanus Latinorum) was erected on August 28, 1412 in the city of Lwow (today Lviv). It serves as a metropolitan see of the Roman Catholic Church in Ukraine. The principal patron of the Archdiocese is the Blessed Virgin Mary Mother of Mercy.

Archdiocese of Lviv today is divided between Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, Roman Catholic Church and Armenian Catholic Church. Armenian Catholic Church has only one diocese in Ukraine and vacant since 1954.

History[edit]

In 1909 Pope Pius X proclaimed the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Poland and Blessed Jakub Strzemię to be the patrons of the Lviv archdiocese. In 1910 the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Poland became the principal patron. Nowadays the principal patron is the Blessed Virgin Mary Mother of Mercy (NMP Łaskawa). The patron's day is celebrated on 1 April, the day when King of Poland Jan II Kazimierz Waza took an oath at the Lwów Cathedral in 1655, during "The Deluge," took vows of loyalty to God and declared the Mother of God to be the Queen of Poland.
