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).

WE GLADLY WELCOME YOU
TO OUR CHURCH!

Mat. 25:1-13
1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, who took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
2 And five of them were foolish, and five were wise.
3 For the foolish, when they took their lamps, took no oil with them:
4 but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5 Now while the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6 But at midnight there is a cry, Behold, the bridegroom! Come ye forth to meet him.
7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are going out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, Peradventure there will not be enough for us and you: go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
10 And while they went away to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage feast: and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
13 Watch therefore, for ye know not the day nor the hour.
