St. John’s Ukrainian Catholic Church, McKees Rocks Bottoms

St. John’s Ukrainian Catholic Church

It is much smaller than its Ukrainian Orthodox (formerly Ukrainian Greek Catholic) neighbor St. Mary’s around the corner, but both congregations continue to inhabit the same neighborhood without throwing bricks at each other.
