Roman Catholic Diocese of Sisak Wikipedia
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Sisak (Croatian: Sisačka biskupija; Latin: Dioecesis Sisciensis) is a diocese in the Ecclesiastical province of Zagreb in Croatia. Its see is in the city of Sisak. On December 5, 2009 Pope Benedict XVI erected the residential Diocese of Sisak, until then a Titular see of the Roman Catholic Church. Its territory was taken from the Archdiocese of Zagreb. On the same day the Pope erected the new Diocese of Bjelovar-Križevci, also in Croatia and within the Ecclesiastical province of Zagreb.
The diocese of Sisak had been first established in the 3rd century and by the 7th century it had already become extinct. This is an unusual instance of a titular diocese of the Catholic Church becoming a residential one.
