About This Website

Although this website is supported and maintained by several people, its key administrator and main writer is Andriy (Partykevich).  Andriy was canonically ordained in the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA by the late Metropolitan and later Patriarch Mstyslav (Skrypnyk).  He was a priest in this church when it was officially received into the Ecumenical Patriarchate. He obtained his seminary education at the Ukrainian Orthodox Seminary of St. Sophia in S. Bound Brook, NJ.  Having earned a BA from Rutgers University, he then completed his MA and PhD in history at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  He served as a parish priest for almost twenty years in Boston, MA while lecturing at the Seminary in the area of Orthodox Church history as well as the history of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.  By his own choice, Father Andriy no longer serves as an active priest.
