Notes to the English Edition

Every effort has been made to retain as nearly as possible the precise phrasing of the original Ukrainian language second edition. One notable exception involves the name of our Church. Rather than calling it the “Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church,” most of the faithful of the English-speaking world use the term “Ukrainian Catholic Church,” and it is rendered this way throughout the Catechism except in cases where there is a reference to a particular institution or body of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church.

With reference to liturgical days, there exist several styles of citing from our hymnography. We have opted, in every case, to follow the daily order of services as Vespers, (Great) Compline, Matins, and the Hours. Therefore, where a footnote indicates “Great and Holy Monday, Vespers,” it refers to the Vespers service for Great and Holy Monday that would be celebrated on Sunday evening.
