Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church

The Basilian (male) Order, reformed according to Jesuit models in 1617 and 1882, is the institutional continuation of the line of monasticism pre-dating the Union of Brest. The analogous Basilian Sisters remained more traditional in their organization far longer, for example, less centralized. The year 1892 saw the creation of Ukraine's first entirely active women's congregation, the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate. Eventually, however, the Basilian Sisters became just as active in apostolates such as teaching and patient care. In 1906 Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky renewed a traditional form of monasticism with the founding of the Studites, who have a female counterpart. That year also saw the formation of a Ukrainian Province of the Redemptorists. Several smaller congregations (Holy Family, Saint Joseph, Vincentians and Mother of God) also exist. In the West, the Basilians, Sister Servants of Mary Immaculate and Redemptorists are the most numerous. The total number of religious throughout the world approximates 1,000.
