while Ukrainian is in the title of our Church, one need not be ethnically Ukrainian to join our 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 (our theology, liturgy,
spirituality and canon law are non-Latin), while maintaining full Eucharistic communion with the Catholic Church in Rome.
(Fr. Ivan Chirovsky)
