Royal Doors was launched as a website to provide English language resources for Ukrainian Greek Catholics in July 2011. We hope to have an ever growing collection of catechetical resources, liturgical services, “how to” videos, news articles, and many other items that will serve the needs of the Church. Royal Doors in an unofficial site. We submit to the authority of our Patriarch, Sviatoslav, the Synod of Bishops of the UGCC, and, through their communion with the Holy Father, to Pope Francis. We promise to strive to present Church teachings accurately. If you believe that we have failed or could do better, please contact us – we are very open to hear from you.
Royal Doors was initially conceived by Fr. Andrij Chirovsky, founder and professor of the Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute of Eastern Christian Studies at Saint Paul University in Ottawa, Canada, Fr. Michael Winn (Archeparchy of Winnipeg), Fr. James Bankston (Eparchy of Chicago), and Fr. Bohdan Nahachewsky (Eparchy of Edmonton). Presently, it is run by Fr. Michael Winn and Fr. Roman Planchak (Eparchy of Edmonton) with contributions from many others.
