The Syro-Malankara (Catholic) Apostolic Exarchate in the United States is an apostolic exarchate for Syro-Malankara Catholics in the United States of America.

In the Exarch is also vested the office of Apostolic Visitor of the Syro-Malankars in Canada and Europe, who have no proper jurisdiction there.


The Apostolic Exarchate was erected by Pope Benedict XVI on July 14, 2010 upon request of the Holy Synod of the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church, particularly Cyril Baselios, in 2001.[2] Aboon Thomas Mar Eusebius, formerly secretary general of the Syro-Malankara Catholic Major Archeparchy of Trivandrum, became the first Exarch.[3]
