History of the Parish in Eupatoria

Since its foundation the pastor of the parish of the Protection of the Holy Mother of God in the city Eupatoria is Fr. Bohdan Kostetskyj. Fr. Bohdan commented that the parish has grown from 5 people at the beginning to about eighty. All the faithful participate actively in the life of the parish and help each other and the priest to create a strong church. For the first time in the history of the Odesa and Crimea Exarchate the divine service is conducted in the Russian language. There is also a Russian-language parochial choir. By the joint efforts of Bishop Vasyliy, Fr. Bohdan, local faithful and donors, a land plot was purchased to build a church (construction work is to begin in the fall of this year) for the local authority does not want to give land for a church of the UGCC for free.
