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!

Luk. 24:36-53
36 And as they spake these things, he himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace [be] unto you.
37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they beheld a spirit.
38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and wherefore do questionings arise in your heart?
39 See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye behold me having.
40 And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet.
41 And while they still disbelieved for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here anything to eat?
42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish.
43 And he took it, and ate before them.
44 And he said unto them, These are my words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must needs be fulfilled, which are written in the law of Moses, and the prophets, and the psalms, concerning me.
45 Then opened he their mind, that they might understand the scriptures;
46 and he said unto them, Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer, and rise again from the dead the third day;
47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name unto all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
48 Ye are witnesses of these things.
49 And behold, I send forth the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city, until ye be clothed with power from on high.
50 And he led them out until [they were] over against Bethany: and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he parted from them, and was carried up into heaven.
52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
53 and were continually in the temple, blessing God.
