Tirana. The CCEE Plenary Assembly has acceded to the request of His Lordship Mgr Milan Šašik, Eparchial Bishop of Mukachevo (or Mukaceve) for Byzantine Rite Ruthenians, to become a member of the Council of European Episcopal Conferences, according the formula suggested by the Congregation for the Oriental Churches. Therefore CCEE is now composed of the Presidents of the 33 Bishops’ Conferences present in Europe and the Archbishops of Luxembourg, of the Principality of Monaco, the Maronite Archbishop of Cyprus, the Bishop of Chisinau (Republic of Moldova) and the Eparchial Bishop of Mukachevo. Also participating are the President of the Bishops’ Conference of Kazakhstan and the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem with the status of permanent invitees. The Eparchy of Mukachevo (or Mukaceve) belongs of the Ruthenian “sui iuris” Metropolitan Church. Through the 1646 Union of Užhorod, the Ruthenian Church was united with the Catholic Church. The Eparchy of Mukacevo is immediately subject to the Holy See. His Lordship Mgr Milan Šašik, C.M., was born in Lehota, in the diocese of Nitra (Slovakia) on 17 September 1952.
