Parish of Sacred Assumption of Holy Virgin

(Autocephalic Orthodox Church)

This congregation was established after World War II. On 16 February 1976 members of the parish voted to sell parish land and also the land left by the late T. Pawluk in order to buy new church premises.[1] It now occupies the former Salvation Army Hall. The members of the Balaclava corps of the Salvation Army had held their final meeting there on 4 January 1976. The interior has been elaborately decorated according to Ukrainian Orthodox tradition.
