Ss. Peter and Paul UGCC Cathedral in Melbourne, AU

Monday's Map: We're traveling with the angels!

Today we're flying over to Melbourne, Victoria, Australia where you'll find the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic cathedral of Ss. Peter and Paul.

The cathedral was featured in the 2007 book Windows to Heaven: the Icons of the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul in Melbourne which was written in both English and Ukrainian.

Their eparchial website has a wealth of information including an Ask the Priest column and videos of services. Check it out! http://www.catholicukes.org.au/

Liturgy schedule:
  • Sunday 8:00 AM (Recited Liturgy)
  • Sunday 9:30 AM (Ukrainian Divine Liturgy)
  • Sunday 11:30 AM (English Divine Liturgy)
  • Weekdays 9:00 AM (Divine Liturgy)
The cathedral is currently served by the following clergy:
  • Most Rev. Peter Stasiuk C.Ss.R. (Bishop)
  • Rt. Rev. Mitrat Olexander Kenez (Chancellor/Protosynce), Fr. Felix Figureк (Administrator), Rt. Rev. Mitrat Zenon Chorkawyj, Very Rev. Fr. Peter Struk, Fr. Robert Stickland, Fr. Brian Kelty
  • Rev. Deacon Edward Kostraby
And in cartography news, here's what's happening with the Universal Map:
  • I updated several UGCC parishes in Australia, mostly changing the title from "Ukrainian Catholic Church" to the parish's full name.
  • I added several Australian UGCC parishes that weren't previously on the universal map.
  • I created place markers for five UGCC parishes that were not previously marked in Google Maps as businesses/churches.
  • I sent emails to the administrators of the 5 newly-added parishes to let them know that a postcard will arrive in the mail in 2-3 weeks with a pin number that I must enter in order for the church to be labeled on Google Maps. (If your priest receives one, please let him know it is legit.)
Monday's Map gives updates on the Universal Map project and highlights Eastern and Oriental Catholic institutions as well as those who run and serve them.
