Pascha Message

Easter Pastoral Message from His Beatitude Patriarch Sviatoslav in English and Ukrainian

Note 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
