Who We Are

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.

Here for you

Fr. Paul is always eager to bring the sacraments, or simply a friendly ear, to anyone who wishes either. If you, or anyone you know, has some need, or is simply in Japan for a long or short stay, please contact the mission to arrange a visit. For visiting seafarers, a visit to your ship and services on board or at a nearby Mission to Seafarers can be arranged.

Women who come to Japan alone face unique difficulties, but you are never really alone; God will never forget you, and neither will we! Our community includes other women who would want to meet you.
