Celebration and commemoration often go hand-in-hand.  Eleven years have flown by, but, it seems like yesterday that Metropolitan Constantine of Blessed Memory was celebrating the 40th anniversary of his episcopal consecration surrounded by clergy and faithful from around the nation and the world in Pittsburgh, PA!  

On Sunday, May 21, 2023 – the feast of the Holy Apostle and Evangelist John the Theologian (98-117), the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA prayerfully commemorated the 11th anniversary of repose of Metropolitan Constantine – third Prime Hierarch of the UOC of the USA.

With the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan Antony, Archbishop Daniel traveled to Pittsburgh, PA in order to preside over the commemorative Memorial service at the gravesite of Metropolitan Constantine in Bethel Park, PA where he is buried next to his mother and other family members.
