special summer announcement

The Pyrohy making and sales season begins in September and ends in May.

Between July 12 and September 6, inclusive, we offer two Divine Liturgies and one Matinal Liturgy on the weekends so that one may fulfill their Sunday obligation to gather.
The first is an anticipated Divine Liturgy with Vespers which is served on Saturday evenings; sung or recited by the congregation in English at 5:00 pm.
The second is a Divine Liturgy sung by the congregation about two-thirds in English and one third in Ukrainian at 9:30 am, unless a substitute priest chooses a different time.
 
On most Sunday mornings during the summer we MAY also have a Reader’s Liturgy of Matins, also called “Morning Prayer”, in English at 8:00 am.
 
In any case, please do consult the previous Sunday’s church bulletin or our parish web site for any changes to the above schedules.
 
If you wish to receive the Holy Mystery of Confession please come to church on Saturdays between 4:00 and 4:30 pm.
You may leave a message for Father Pastor at the church office (412-431-2531) to call you back to set up a confession time that would be more convenient for you personally.



Church Tower:

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 Council c/o 95 S. Seventh St. Pittsburgh, PA. 15203

Bulletins

Most recent bulletin from Sunday of the Samaritan Woman and Theodosius May 3rd, 2015

Note 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

Eastern Dignity

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.
