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!

Mrk. 7:14-24
14 And he called to him the multitude again, and said unto them, Hear me all of you, and understand:
15 there is nothing from without the man, that going into him can defile him; but the things which proceed out of the man are those that defile the man.
16 [If any man hath ears to hear, let him hear.]
17 And when he was entered into the house from the multitude, his disciples asked of him the parable.
18 And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Perceive ye not, that whatsoever from without goeth into the man, [it] cannot defile him;
19 because it goeth not into his heart, but into his belly, and goeth out into the draught? [This he said], making all meats clean.
20 And he said, That which proceedeth out of the man, that defileth the man.
21 For from within, out of the heart of men, evil thoughts proceed, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries,
22 covetings, wickednesses, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, railing, pride, foolishness:
23 all these evil things proceed from within, and defile the man.
24 And from thence he arose, and went away into the borders of Tyre and Sidon. And he entered into a house, and would have no man know it; and he could not be hid.
