Life is about Love.  Life is about Hope.  Life is about Faith. Life is about Change.  Most importantly it is a gift from God who promises an even more abundant life in his kingdom. If you are seeking to improve your relationship with God, if you are seeking answers in this troubled world, if you have lost your spiritual way, or if you just need a place to rest your soul, then you have found your way home. Welcome to St. Demetrius UOC, a parish within the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, but more importantly, a parish within God's Holy, Apostolic and Orthodox tradition. Please come join us for services and experience the beauty of the Orthodox Faith and Tradition.. We welcome all. You don't have to be Ukrainian.  You don't have to be Orthodox. . The majority of our services are conducted in English (especially the Gospel readings and homilies) . If you are interested in pursuing a life in Christ in the Orthodox Church or just are searching, please reach out to and let's start a conversation.  I hope to see you at our next service.
In His Love,
Father James

Funeral Information


Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

"Blessed is the way you walk today, O soul; a place of rest has been prepared for you."

It is with a profound sense of our own loss - yet in the inextinguishable light of peace and mercy that is the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ - that we inform the faithful of St. Demetrius Cathedral of the passing from this life of the handmaiden of God, Pani Matushka MaryAnn Chubenko this evening.

O God of spirits and of all flesh, Who has trampled down death; You have overthrown the devil and have given Life to Your world: now give rest, Lord, to the soul of Your departed servant MaryAnn, in a place of light, a place of refreshment and a place of repose, where there is no sickness, sighing nor sorrow. As You are a Good God, Who loves mankind, pardon every sin, which she has committed, whether by word or by deed or by thought, for there is no man who lives and has not sinned. You alone are sinless, Your Righteousness is Eternal and Your Word is Truth. For You are the Resurrection, the Life and the Repose of your newly departed servant MaryAnn, Christ our God and we give glory, together with Your Father, Who is Eternal and Your All-Holy, Good and Life-Creating Spirit, now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen!

Вічна пам'ять! Memory Eternal!
