The Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Winnipeg is pleased to announce that following upon the decision of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Synod of Bishops, Pope Francis has transferred Bishop Andriy Rabiy, until now the Auxiliary Bishop of the Archeparchy of Philadelphia (USA) to the position of Auxiliary Bishop of the Archeparchy of Winnipeg.

Bishop Andriy Rabiy was born 1 October 1975 in Lviv, Ukraine, and after initiating seminary studies in Ivano-Frankivsk, transferred to the United States where he completed his seminary formation and was ordained to the priesthood on 19 December 2001 in Philadelphia by Metropolitan Stefan Soroka. In addition to various pastoral assignments in the United States, he continued his studies, completing a doctorate at the Catholic University of America in Washington DC in the field of Church Canon Law. He also served in various capacities within the Philadelphia chancery serving, in addition to other positions, as chancellor and vicar general.

He received episcopal ordination on 3 September 2017 in Lviv, Ukraine. Bishop Andriy Rabiy is the 7th auxiliary bishop to serve the see of Winnipeg, the first being Bishop Neil Savaryn, OSBM, who was appointed in 1943. Bishop Rabiy's pastoral and canonical experience will be of great assistance as the Archeparchy of Winnipeg ministers to some 12,000 Ukrainian refugees who have recently arrived in Manitoba fleeing the war in Ukraine.
