The Conception of the Immaculate Mother of God Ukrainian Greco Catholic Parish is an Eastern Catholic church. We are part of the the St. Nicholas Eparchy of Chicago, which is part of the Philadelphia Metropolia for Ukrainian Catholics in the United States. The Philadelphia Metropolia is part of the worldwide Ukrainian Greco-Catholic Church (UGCC), headed by the Synod of Bishops, under the leadership of Patriarch Sviatoslav (Shevchuk), who was elected and enthroned on March 27, 2011.
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.
