The church of Saint Mary Pokrova (Protection) is a Catholic Church of the Byzantine-Ruthenian Eparchy of Passaic, New Jersey. The Byzantine-Ruthenian Church sui iuris (“of its own right”) is self-governing and equal in dignity to the Roman Catholic Church. We are in communion with the Bishop of Rome, though the Byzantine Church is unique in its clergy, laws, institutions, liturgies, forms of spirituality, and methods of theology. Our parish is one of the oldest Byzantine-Ruthenian Catholic churches in America, founded in 1887 by Eastern European immigrants who wished to worship according to their Eastern Catholic traditions. Come and see!
