Dear Friends, Welcome!

We are extremely pleased that you are visiting our website and are interested in the life of our parish family.

St. Mary the Protectress (Pokrova) Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral belongs to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA and is under the omophorion of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.  For over sixty years, our parish has been a gathering place for the Ukrainian Orthodox faithful in the Detroit Metropolitan area.  We deeply appreciate the hard work of the founders of this parish – their legacy is a beautiful place of worship that enjoys a warm family atmosphere. 

Our parish has opened its doors and hearts to many generations of Ukrainians –many who have left their homeland to find a better life in the U.S.A. and those born here.   This has also become the spiritual home of many people from various post-Soviet countries.  We are very pleased to see the diversity of people worshipping together.   St. Paul people said, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3, 28).

We come together for worship services regularly on Saturdays and Sundays and during major holy days.  The main language of worship is Ukrainian, but services are also conducted in English and Church Slavonic.

Our current Church was built in 1970 and was the result of many generous donations of time and money of the entire Ukrainian Orthodox community.  From the very beginning our Church organizations and youth groups worked in close harmony with one another - the Sisterhood of St. Olha, the Cathedral choir, Lesia Ukrainka School of Religious and Ukrainian Education, the Ukrainian Orthodox League and the Organization of Democratic Ukrainian Youth (ODUM).

Our parish hall is the site of many celebrations and is the gathering place for Sunday fellowship lunches, choir practices, and summer Bible school activities. After Sunday worship, you can always enjoy delicious Ukrainian dishes lovingly prepared by the sisterhood of our church or the Junior UOL (Ukrainian Orthodox League).  Please come and join us for a hot bowl of borscht, varennyky, piroshky and coffee every Sunday. 

WE GLADLY WELCOME YOU
TO OUR CHURCH!

Friday , April 28, 2017
(Julian calendar:
Friday , April 15, 2017)

Jn. 5:30–6:2
30 I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
32 It is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
33 Ye have sent unto John, and he hath borne witness unto the truth.
34 But the witness which I receive is not from man: howbeit I say these things, that ye may be saved.
35 He was the lamp that burneth and shineth; and ye were willing to rejoice for a season in his light.
36 But the witness which I have is greater than [that of] John; for the works which the Father hath given me to accomplish, the very works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
37 And the Father that sent me, he hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his form.
38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he sent, him ye believe not.
39 Ye search the scriptures, because ye think that in them ye have eternal life; and these are they which bear witness of me;
40 and ye will not come to me, that ye may have life.
41 I receive not glory from men.
42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in yourselves.
43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
44 How can ye believe, who receive glory one of another, and the glory that [cometh] from the only God ye seek not?
45 Think not that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, [even] Moses, on whom ye have set your hope.
46 For if ye believed Moses, ye would believe me; for he wrote of me.
47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

Chapter: 6

1 After these things Jesus went away to the other side of the sea of Galilee, which is [the sea] of Tiberias.
2 And a great multitude followed him, because they beheld the signs which he did on them that were sick.
