Bohdan John Danylo (born May 27, 1971) is a bishop of the Catholic Church in the United States. He has served as the Eparch of Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Saint Josaphat in Parma since 2014. In March 2015, he was the youngest U.S. Catholic bishop in active ministry, at age 43.


Bohdan John Danylo was born in Giżycko, Poland. He began his studies for the priesthood in Poland where he studied philosophy in Lublin.[1] After moving to the United States he completed his theological studies at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.

Danylo was ordained a priest for the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Stamford on October 1, 1996, by Bishop Basil H. Losten. He spent a year at St. Michael's Parish in Hartford, Connecticut before he was named the Vice-Rector of the Seminary of St. Basil's Cathedral in Stamford, Connecticut. He furthered his education at Saint Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary in Crestwood, New York and at the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas in Rome where he earned a Licentiate of Sacred Theology.

Pope Francis named Danylo as the second bishop of Saint Josaphat in Parma on August 7, 2014.[2] He was consecrated a bishop by Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk of Kiev-Galicia on November 4, 2014. The principal co-consecrators were auxiliary bishop John Bura of Philadelphia and Bishop Paul Patrick Chomnycky, O.S.B.M. of Stamford.[3]
