Carnegie, PA, USA
I grew up in Chicago, IL,
attended the University of Illinois, Urbana - Champaign, St. Sopia Seminary, So. Bound Brook ,NJ
Was a pastor at St Michaels Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Minniapolis, MN, and am now at St. Peter and St. Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Carnegie, PA. My parents were from Ukraine. My mom was from Sloboda Bolechivska, Ivano-Frankivsk, and my dad was from Stare- Soshnikiv, Kijiv. I started translating to remember and to share the songs my mother used to always sing.The second and third & fourth generations are no longer speaking ukrainian. Here english, elsewhere spanish, portuguese, french, or german. I think it's important to keep sharing the culture, and it's treasures with everyone. Some how to preserve it.
