The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA offers healing, comfort, wholeness, spiritual fulfillment, and joy as her members work together to reveal the beauty of God's creation by proclaiming and living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


We embrace everyone who hungers for love, comfort, fulfillment, and hope.

Do you love God and desire a deeper union in Him through Christ?  Are you moved by the beauty of traditional architecture, iconography, and liturgy?  Do you love to experience warm, family-friendly fellowship, to hear good music and Christ-centered preaching, to participate in enriching adult education and to offer the same to your children?  If so, then "Come and See" us!  We are a parish of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA under the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople and our doors and hearts are open to you and your family!

Bible Study. We are continunuing to make our way through the Old Testament.  During Great Lent, we will be taking a break from formal Bible Study.  Instead, we will be using the readings and hymns of the services of Great Lent and Holy Week serve as a review for all the material we have covered to date.  Lord willing, we will resume our weekly study with the book of Joshua after Pascha.  In the meantime, notes for our classes (and the Sunday homilies) can be found at Fr. Anthony's website, OrthoAnalytika; recordings of these (and the Sunday homilies) can be found there and at Fr. Anthony's iTunes podcast, OrthoAnalytika.
