Glory to Jesus Christ!

Welcome to St. Sophia Ukrainian Catholic Church. We are delighted you’re here! St. Sophia’s is an Eastern Catholic Church in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex under the jurisdiction of St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Chicago. We are in full and visible communion with Rome.

It is our hope that this website will help to answer your questions and will provide you with all the necessary information about our parish and our Church. Should your inquiry not be answered here, we also welcome you to call, fax, email or come and visit.

His Beatitude Sviatoslav (Shevchuk) said, “a living parish is the place of meeting with the living Christ.” We especially invite you to visit us for prayer and worship to experience for yourself the richness and beauty of our Ukrainian Byzantine Rite. As the Apostle Philip said (John 1:46), “Come and see!”

-Fr. Pavlo

Safe Environment
St. Sophia parish unites its prayers and actions to those of Bishop Benedict in denouncing the scandalous abuse of authority, of chastity, and of people that has come to light in recent weeks.

If you have been the victim of any past or present abuse by a member of the clergy of whatever rank, please report this to the civil authorities and notify the Eparchial Office for Safe Environment.

Якщо Ви стали жертвою будь-якого сексуального надужиття, в минулому або теперішньому, заподіяного членом духовенства будь-якого рангу, прошу це повідомити державним органам влади, а також поінформувати Єпархіальний Відділ Безпечного Довкілля.

We will walk the sorrowful journey beside all who need it as we pray and fast, especially during the prescribed times of abstinence: Wednesdays and Fridays, the four fast periods of our liturgical year, and other prescribed days of abstinence.

To all who are suffering, we offer our sacrifices, our tears, our solidarity, and our sincere sorrow. We are sorry for whatever corruption, scandal, or abuse you have endured and we are committed to the process of reparation, rehabilitation, and reconciliation of this deep and systemic evil present among us.

 

Prayer and fasting is our weapon against the Evil One; and make no mistake about it, the Evil One has infiltrated the Church, hoping to undermine the Church from within. Let us remember that our Risen Lord is infinitely more powerful and through prayer and fasting we permit the Lord to empower us, protect us, and render us ready to do battle with Satan and his forces.

Піст та молитва – це наша зброя проти лукавого. Нехай ніхто не сумнівається, лукавий просочився в ряди Церкви, хотячи її підірвати з середини. Та пам’ятаймо, що наш Воскреслий Господь є безмежно могутніший, а через молитву й піст, ми дозволяємо, щоб сила Господня увійшла в нас, охороняла нас і озброїла нас на боротьбу зі сатаною і його посіпаками.

With you we cry out:
Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy. Господи, помилуй. Господи, помилуй. Господи, помилуй. Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.
