Although founded by a group of Ukrainian
expatriates, our community is open to people of
any nationality. All who come with sincere intent,
whether or not they are Orthodox or Christian, are
welcome, and all who attend, whether or not they
are Ukrainian, will have a good chance to make
friends as we worship together according to the
ancient Christian tradition, and together explore
how to apply the wisdom of Christian teachings to
our lives in today's world.
Services alternate between Ukrainian and
Japanese, with English used each week. Our priest,
Fr. Paul Koroluk, speaks English and Japanese.
We are extremely grateful to the Faithful of St. Alban's
Anglican Church, and to Bishop Takahashi of
