 Welcome to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary Ukrainian Orthodox Church!

We are a parish of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA under the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople and our doors and hearts are open to you and your family!  Our church follows the Julian (Old) Calendar. All Orthodox Christians are welcome and encouraged to participate in the Blessed Sacraments of Repentance and Eucharist.  See the bulletin tab for all liturgical information regarding feasts and commemorations.

Do you love God and desire a deeper union in Him through Christ?  Are you moved by the beauty of traditional architecture, iconography, and liturgy?  Do you love to experience warm, family-friendly fellowship, to hear good music and Christ-centered preaching, to participate in enriching adult education and to offer the same to your children?  If so, then "Come and See" us!  It would be a blessing if you could visit us and we encourage you to come back as often as you can.  Perhaps you will find our parish to be your spiritual home!

We are located at 1301 Newport Avenue in Northampton, Pennsylvania.

Visit the 360° Virtual Tour of our church by opening the "360 Virtual Tour" page.  It is a fully immersive, sharable virtual reality tour of our church building. Enjoy  a glimpse of the beauty and majesty within our church.

BENE NOTE:

DEAR PARISHIONERS;

We want to thank you all so much for your most generous gift, hope and prayers for our daughter, Katerina. It was so thoughtful, gracious and kind for you all to do.

An update: Katerina is proceeding nicely through her treatment plan and is currently in the third phase of immunotherapy at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. We can describe her as a happy seven-year-old in spirit and mind, eating well and growing full of life and a fighter. She is also keeping up with her 1st grade studies as best she can at home.

There have been a few challenges for her to overcome over the last 15 months, but with the grace of God watching over her and the best doctors, she’s in very good hands and the only hospital to be at in the world. We truly believe her prognosis is positive and she will survive this terrible disease and live a normal life in the future. God bless you all for helping us.

In Christ,
John & Nataliya Seremula & Family
