Ihor Vozniak (born 3 August 1952) is the Archbishop of Lviv since 2005, succeeding Lubomyr Husar.

Life[edit]

Archbishop Vozniak was born on 3 August 1952 in Lypytsi, in Mykolaiv Raion, Lviv Oblast, in the Ukrainian SSR of the Soviet Union (in present-day Ukraine).

He entered the Redemptorist Order in 1973 and was secretly ordained a priest in Vinnytsia on 23 November 1980. He served in the cathedral of Ternopil from 1989.

On 11 January 2002, he was appointed Auxiliary Bishop of Lviv, Ukraine and Titular Bishop of Nisa in Lycia. On 17 February 2002, he was consecrated by Cardinal Lubomyr Husar. When the Major Archeparchy of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church returned from the city of Lviv to the Ukrainian capital of Kiev in 2004, the major archbishop Lubomyr Husar transferred to the new See. On 10 November 2005, Ihor Vozniak was appointed Archbishop of Lviv.[1]

He served as the interim administration of the major archepiscopal see of Kiev after the resignation of Cardinal Husar until the election of Sviatoslav Shevchuk in February 2011.
