We are Catholics in communion with the Bishop of Rome, His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, whom we recognize as the visible Head of the Catholic Church. We are a "Sui Juris" church (meaning: of one`s own laws). We are not "under" the Roman Catholic Church, but rather "in communion" with the Roman Catholic Church. We are two Sui Juris Churches, going forward side by side in our faith journey, as we both recognize in communion the authority and leadership of the Successor of Saint Peter the Apostle. The local Roman Catholic Bishop, the Bishops of the United States, and the whole world recognize us as being Catholic. As part of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, we are identified as Eastern Catholics and share the same faith and we have the same seven Sacraments. The difference is that as Eastern Catholics, we have a different way(or Rite), of expressing our Faith in regards to Liturgy, customs, theology and spirituality.

Our Patriarch and Spiritual Shepherd is His Beatitude Sviatoslav Shevchuk,
Major Archbishop of Kyiv-Halych, Ukraine.

Our Metropolitan-Archbishop is His Grace,
The Most Reverend Stefan Soroka of Philadelphia.

We follow the Ukrainian-Byzantine Liturgical
computation, holy days, and calendar of saints,
according to the Gregorian calendar.
(Christmas is celebrated on December 25)

Please note: the "DAILY BREAD" box to the right, follows the Roman Catholic liturgical calendar, daily readings, calendar of saints, etc., which differ from the Ukrainian-Byzantine calendar and traditions.
