Cathedral in Tulchin. Tulchin Diocese.
The Christ-Christmas Tulchin Cathedral in Tulchin was built at the expense of Count Stanislav Potocki in 1786-1817, as a Catholic Dominican church with monastic cells. But already in 1832, the Tulchinsky Cathedral (Tulchin Diocese), due to the fact that Podolia finally came out from under Polish influence, was transferred to the Orthodox department of the Moscow Patriarchate Church in Tulchin.
The highest command was to close "excessive Catholic monasteries, which did not correspond to their purpose both for a small number of monks and for lack of means for subsistence." One of the compelling reasons for the conversion of Dominican monasteries in Kamenets, Smotrich, Letychiv, Vinnitsa, Bar, Tulchin, Sokolts, Tyvrov.
