Covid information

Click HERE for Prayer in Time of Corona Virus

On Wednesday, May 19, our Parish Council  reviewed the current CDC and State health officials’ recommendations concerning Covid precautions. Therefore, as of this date, the following will be in effect:

  1. Fully vaccinated people will no longer have to wear masks during church services and activities. Those who are not fully vaccinated are asked to continue wearing masks for their protection and the protection of others. We will rely on the honor system and will not ask for vaccination proof. Anyone is welcome to continue wearing masks if they should choose.
  2. We will continue to preregister for Liturgy attendance via SignUp Genius accessible from our Website (in order to maintain contact tracing).
  3. We will continue to maintain social distancing within the nave of the church.

Hopefully these remaining precautions can be lifted in the near future.

We are fortunate that we have been able to keep our church open during this difficult year though we have had to abide with restrictions. Thank you all for your understanding, patience, and cooperation.  We pray that we can resume normal parish life soon and that this health crisis will be eliminated.

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.
