The Prešov diocese includes a considerable number of ethnic Rusyn Greek Catholics.
In recent times, however, they have been absorbed into Slovak culture to a certain extent, as very few religious books are available in Rusyn, and the liturgy is almost always celebrated in either Church Slavonic or Slovak.
There were 131 women religious, and 92 seminarians.
In the United States and most other areas, the Slovaks are not distinguished from the Ruthenians.
During the interwar period a significant movement back towards Orthodoxy took place among these Greek Catholics.
In 1937 the Byzantine diocese of Prešov, which had been created on September 22, 1818, was removed from the jurisdiction of the Hungarian primate and made immediately subject to the Holy See.
Despite the Yugoslav collapse, its former constituents turned on one another in a bloodletting that did not abate until the new millennium.Of 292 parishes involved, 205 voted to return to communion with Rome.This was one of the few Dubcek reforms that survived the Soviet invasion of 1968.Members of the intelligentsia speculated that a union of the Balkans’ Southern Slavs — Catholic Croats and Slovenes, Muslim Bosniaks and Orthodox Macedonians, Montenegrins and Serbs — would free them from the yoke of the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman empires, which had competed for control of the Balkan Peninsula for centuries.In December 1918, after the collapse of the two empires, an uneasy union of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes was achieved, and the king of Serbia was proclaimed its head.
