З огляду на Family Walk того ранку, дороги біля церкви будуть закриті
отже 16-го жовтня, рБ 2016, не матимемо недільних богослужінь
Due to the Pittsburgh Penguins 6.6K Run and Family Walk presented by Highmark,
there will NO Sunday Divine Worship Services on October 16, AD 2016.
Work has begun on repairing the towers at
St. John's. The Stewardship Council awarded the contract to
Ski Masonry. The
cost for this tower's repairs is $22,820.00.
Thanks to a $10,000 grant from The Pittsburgh History
and Landmarks Foundation, we are able to begin the task of
preserving our church. St. John's, with its domes and towers
not only represents our heritage, but also stands as a
symbol of Pittsburgh's history.
We are very grateful for the Foundation's
assistance with this endeavor. We are also grateful to those
who have donated to the Stewardship Fund. This is the first
of eight towers that we will have to fix. Due to the cost,
we can only do one tower at a time. If you would like to
help, you can send a check to: St. John's Stewardship

from the Pastor:
"While 'Ukrainian' is in the
title of our Church, one need not be ethnically Ukrainian to join this parish. The Ukrainian Catholic Church is a church that comes from the Ukrainian people, but is for the entire human race. We live out our Catholic faith according to the Byzantine Rite
(which means that our theology, liturgy, spirituality and canon law are non-Latin or non-Roman), while maintaining full Eucharistic communion with the Catholic Church in Rome. More information is available on our about us page."
- Fr. Ivan Chirovsky
If you are looking for a spiritual home, consider our Parish
Community, which is founded on one of the most important
gifts of the Holy Spirit: the fullness of Holy Tradition,
just as it was handed down to us from Jesus, to the
apostles, to the bishops.
Please visit our
Eastern Dignity page to read an important message from John
Paul II (The Great) on why conversion is required of the Latin
Church that she may respect and fully appreciate the dignity of
Eastern Christians, and accept gratefully the spiritual
treasures of which the Eastern Catholic Churches are bearers, to
the benefit of the entire Catholic communion.
Reflections on who we are
