The diocese was formed from the seven regions of the Archdiocese at the time in 2003 after the Patriarchate of Antioch granted “Self-Rule” for the Archdiocese in response to the petition in 2001 for “Self-Rule” status by the ruling hierarch Metr. Philip and the General Assembly of the Archdiocese.

Parishes and Monasteries

The diocese includes thirty-six parishes and missions in the states of Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia and that part of Maryland outside the Washington, DC metropolitan area.[[1]] While the parishes in the diocese are principally eastern rite, the diocese does have western rite parishes.
