Byzantine Rite Catholic Greeks have always been a minor population in Constantinople however after 1895 they received support the Assumptionists and founded in 1910 a seminary in the city where there were about 1,000 worshipers with 12 priests, 10 of which were Assumptionists. No doubt their Catholic outlook made this population closer to the Western Levantine orbit, but this did not protect them from later anti-Greek sentiments and today the community is virtually extinct in Istanbul.
