To fulfill the spiritual needs of her faithful, to provide for those in need throughout the world, to educate and nurture her youth, and to support and train her clergy, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA utilizes numerous ministries and institutions. 

Among these are the St. Sophia Ukrainian Orthodox Seminary which trains young men for the priesthood, gives deeper understanding to students, and prepares educators on how best to reach today’s youth.  UOC Youth and All Saints Camp are instrumental in planting the seeds of faith into young minds, providing them with a rudimentary understanding of their Faith, and helping it grow with them and blossom.  The Church Bookstore provides parishes with service books, church supplies and vestments, and homes with icons, prayer books, crosses, and all manner of materials to assist the faithful on their spiritual journeys.
