Diocese
The word DIOCESE (/ˈdaɪ.ə.sɪs/ ) is derived from the Greek term _διοίκησις_ meaning "administration". When now used in an ecclesiastical sense, it refers to a territorial unit of administration. In the Western Church, the district is under the supervision of a bishop (who may have assistant bishops to help him or her) and is divided into parishes under the care of priests; but in the Eastern Church, the word denotes the area under the jurisdiction of a patriarch and the bishops under his jurisdiction administer parishes. This structure of church governance is known as episcopal polity . The word DIOCESAN means relating or pertaining to a diocese. It can also be used as a noun meaning the bishop who has the principal supervision of a diocese. A diocese also may be referred to as a _BISHOPRIC_ or _episcopal see _, though strictly the term _episcopal see_ refers to the domain of ecclesiastical authority officially held by the bishop, and the term _bishopric_ to the post of being bishop. An ARCHDIOCESE (or ARCHIEPISCOPAL SEE or ARCHBISHOPRIC) is more significant than a diocese. An archdiocese is presided over by an archbishop whose see may have or have had importance due to size or historical significance. The archbishop may have metropolitan authority over any other suffragan bishops and their dioceses within his ecclesiastical province
