The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Đakovo-Osijek (Croatian: Đakovačko-osječka nadbiskupija; Latin: Archidioecesis Diacovensis-Osijekensis) is an archdiocese of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church in Croatia.[1][2]

The archdiocese is centred on the cities of Đakovo and Osijek, in Croatia.

Đuro Hranić was appointed Archbishop on 18 April 2013 by Pope Francis following the resignation of Marin Srakić.

The Archdiocese currently has two suffragans: the Diocese of Požega, and the Diocese of Srijem.

History[edit]

Originally erected in the 4th century as the diocese of Syrmia, the diocese was united with the diocese of Bosnia in July 1773, when it was named the Diocese of Bosnia or Ðakovo and Srijem (Bosniensis seu Diacovensis et Sirmiensis).[3] In 1963, the diocese was renamed to the diocese of Đakovo or Bosnia and Srijem (Diacovensis seu Bosnensis et Sirmiensis).[3]

It was elevated to an Archdiocese on July 18, 2008 by Pope Benedict XVI, renamed to the Archdiocese of Đakovo-Osijek and the new Diocese of Srijem was split off, and made a suffragan. The new Archdiocese also received the Diocese of Požega, as its second suffragan.
