Armeniani Catholic vs Armenian Apostolic[edit]


The last sentence must be erroneous "Shortly before the visit of Pope John Paul II, the Catholic Church made the Cathedral available to the Armenian Apostolic Church to celebrate Divine Liturgy in it. The Armenian Eparchy of Lviv presently remains vacant." As it is the Armenian Catholic Church is the Church in union with the Seat of St. Peter, not the Armenian Apostilic Church.Micael (talk) 01:49, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

no, it is indeed correct, the tiny Armenian Catholic community of the city would have been unable to support the cathedral and instead allowed the Armenian Apostolic Church, which isn't in communion with the Catholic Church, to use the cathedral. Almost all of the Armenians living in Ukraine today came here during soviet times or recently from the Republic of Armenia and generally belong to the Armenian Apostolic Church unlike the Armenians who lived up to WW II in Lviv.-- (talk) 13:40, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
