from the Pastor:
"While 'Ukrainian' is in the
title of our Church, one need not be ethnically Ukrainian to join this parish. The Ukrainian Catholic Church is a church that comes from the Ukrainian people, but is for the entire human race. We live out our Catholic faith according to the Byzantine Rite
(which means that our theology, liturgy, spirituality and canon law are non-Latin or non-Roman), while maintaining full Eucharistic communion with the Catholic Church in Rome. More information is available on our about us page."
- Fr. Ivan Chirovsky
If you are looking for a spiritual home, consider our Parish
Community, which is founded on one of the most important
gifts of the Holy Spirit: the fullness of Holy Tradition,
just as it was handed down to us from Jesus, to the
apostles, to the bishops.
