Our Church

We Welcome you to our Church! 

We welcome everyone to come pray with us at any of our Divine Liturgies! We have both English and Ukrainian Divine Liturgies so everyone in the community can be included. Any questions? Send us a message and one of our team members will get back to you as soon as possible! 

Common Questions

Is there parking at St. Josaphat’s? Yes! There is plenty of parking behind the cathedral before any of our Divine Liturgies! 

What is the dress code? Pray with us with what you’re comfortable in! If you prefer business casual or sweats, our focus is to connect with Christ! If you wish to walk and dress your best, as Christ is our guest, that’s alright! 

Will I be expected to donate? We do not pressure you to donate! When the collection tray is passed around, politely pass it to the next person!

How can I get involved? We have numerous organizations from the Ukrainian Catholic Brotherhood to St. Josaphat’s Bible Study! We encourage you to get involved and take part in our community by simply contacting one of our team members for more information!  

Will I be judged? St. Josaphat’s welcomes people from all walks of life! You will not be judged no matter what part of life you may come from! 

Do I need to know Ukrainian or be an Eastern Catholic? No! We offer our Divine Liturgies in English so everyone can be involved! You do not need to be Catholic to attend and pray in any of our Divine Liturgies! We do ask you refrain from receiving Holy Communion unless you are Catholic.

    I am presently teaching an intensive art history course at Kings university. Is it possible to arrange a tour for a group of 14 students. They cover a section on Byzantine art and I think a visit to your church would be very appropriate.

      “The painting of Buchmaniuk uses elements common to the Neo-Byzantine style. However, this is as close as the painter comes to a regard for the iconographic tradition of the Eastern Church. Parishioners suggest that this church is in the ‘baroque style, with realistic traits, which had become, as it were, the Ukrainian style, accepted under the influence of Netherlands’ baroque, with some Byzantine elements.'”
