Slava Isusu Christu! Glory to Jesus Christ!
Welcome to the Cathedral of St Michael the Archangel!
We are the Cathedral Church of Bishop Kurt J. Burnette for the Eparchy of Passaic.
We are a Byzantine Catholic Church in full communion with the universal Catholic Church.
We offer services in two locations:
Our Food Pantry welcomed some wonderful neighbors today! Fr. Andriy Dudkevych, Sister Ileana ssmi, and some of the eighth grade students at St Nicholas Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in Passaic came by to deliver the food they had recently collected in their food drive. They chose to offer the food to our needy neighbors through St MIchael's Food Pantry and we are grateful! Thank you to Fr. Andriy, Sr. Ileana, and all the students at St Nicholas School! Food Pantry co-ordinators Helena and Paul DeKeukelaere were on hand to accept the gift and to welcome our guests.
The Albazinskaya Theotokos, known as "Helper of Mothers" began her tour around the parishes of the New Jersey Syncellate on Wednesday, January 29, with devotions at St Michael's Cathedral. Bishop Kurt presided and many of the clergy of the Syncellate attended with their families. The faithful were invited to receive special blessings from all the priests in attendance after venerating the icon.
We bless water every year on the feast of the Theophany to commemorate our Lord's baptism in the Jordan, the revelation of the Holy Trinity, and the renewal of our own baptism. Father then brings the newly-blessed Jordan water to parishioners' homes over the course of the month for a special house blessing.
We thank Mayor Richard Rigolioso, Town Manager Tom Duch, and the Chief and Officers of the Garfield Police Force for their hospitality as we blessed the Passaic River from the Thomas J. Duch River Walk in Garfield today for the feast of the Theophany.
We were delighted to welcome our neighbors from around Passaic to give thanks to God. Bishop Kurt presided, Fr. Jack served the Moleben, Subdeacon Bryan Scotton and Pastor Brendan Gillen proclaimed readings, and Fr. Michael Fill of St John's Episcopal C - 11/24/19
What a wonderful day celebrating 129 years of faith, life, worship, and service! Thank you to all who helped make this day possible!
