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. 8:16-21
16 And no man, when he hath lighted a lamp, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but putteth it on a stand, that they that enter in may see the light.
17 For nothing is hid, that shall not be made manifest; nor [anything] secret, that shall not be known and come to light.
18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that which he thinketh he hath.
19 And there came to him his mother and brethren, and they could not come at him for the crowd.
20 And it was told him, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee.
21 But he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these that hear the word of God, and do it.
