St. Elias The Prophet Ukrainian Catholic Church

tury Cossack style. It is one of only 2 Boyko churches that have 5 cupolas rather than the usual 3 (the other being St. George’s in Drohobych, Ukraine. Steeped in the Byzantine Ukrainian tradition of wooden architecture, St. Elias Church was designed on the principle that architectural form should follow liturgical function.

 

This wooden church burned to the ground in the early morning of 5 April 2014 due to a fire that started in the area of the altar. A similar wooden church in the Ukraine suffered the same fate in 2013.
