Ukrainian Catholic bishop in the United States
- Closing the parish is the last thing I want to do, it's sad. I would rather be opening a parish.
- Closing marks slow decline of PA. Ukrainian church (October 28, 2013)
- Bishop John is a kind and noble man who has served God, the Church and the community-at-large with dedication, both as a priest and as a bishop. Throughout a life that began in great danger and hardship he remained faithful. In my first months of service Bishop John has been for me a most valuable and reliable guide for understanding the pastoral history and current issues of our archeparchy.
