If you are looking for a church home, or would like to learn about and experience the salvific liturgical and sacramental life of the Holy Orthodox Church: COME AND SEE!!!

Our Regular Services Are:

  • Divine Liturgy:  9AM, Sunday (hall)

 

Consult our Calendar for details and additional services!


We are conveniently located at:

  • 74 Harris Ave
    Woonsocket, RI 02895
...with handicap access (a chairlift) & plenty of off-street parking.

Occasional Services

  • Service of Repentance:  8:30 AM, first Sunday of each month.  Confession is also available after Vespers, before Liturgy, and upon request.
  • Ukrainian Sunday:  On the first Sunday of each month most of the music and many of the Litanies at the Divine Liturgy are offered in Ukrainian.  Because relatively few of our parishioners are fluent in Ukrainian, the Tropars, Kondaks, Prokimen, Epistle, Gospel, and homily are always offered in English.

Education

  • Church School:  Meets every Sunday after Divine Liturgy.
  • Chanting classes:  Come and learn how music informs our worship (and how to make it happen).
  • Adult Education:  Previous series have included studies of The Shack, The Screwtape Letters, The Way of Ascetics, Orthodoxy and the Paranormal, and several Bible Studies.  Our Lenten study will be on “Orthodoxy, Death, and Dying.”

Special Groups

  • Our Ladies’ Sodality invites everyone to participate in the work they do to support our parish. Come and support this important endeavor!  See our calendar for our work schedule!
  • Our Ukrainian Orthodox League is an adult service group.  It sponsors events, performs charity outreach and provides fellowship opportunities for everyone interested.

  • While it is best to shop locally, if you decide to make purchases via the internet, consider getting to your favorite retailer via www.goodsearch.com.  Hook it up to support St. Michael Ukrainian Orthodox Church, then use goodsearch's links to surf from it to the retailer.  A certain percentage of the purchase will go to our parish.We have raised several hundred dollars this way over the last couple of years!  We also earn money when you use Goodsearch as your search engine.  They even have a program that gives St. Michael's money when you go out to eat!

Orthodox Calendar

St. Michael's is a parish of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, which is under the omiphorion of the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople.

We are a unique community, dedicated to serving God and proclaiming the Good News through the ancient Traditions of the Holy Orthodox Church.  We celebrate and preserve our Faith as it has been passed to us by God through our ancestral homeland Rus'- Ukraine, and we share it with all who would come to know and grow in Christ through the teaching and Mysteries of His Church.

Fr. Anthony is a compassionate pastor.  If you have questions about Orthodoxy or our parish, please ask!  He can also add you to the parish e-mail list so that you can receive things like the weekly homily and bulletin.
