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).
