Cerkiew Bizantyjsko-Ukraińska w Baniach Mazurskich

Cerkiew Bizantyjsko-Ukraińska w Baniach Mazurskich

There is a large group of Greek-Catholics living in Banie Mazurskie. They arrived here after the war as part of a resettlement action. Ukrainians for many years participated in the Roman Catholic church services as the eastern rite was forbidden. It was not until 1957 that the vicar father Eugene Uscki took care of the Greek Catholics and celebrated the Liturgy in two rites. The building is a unique monument and is now looked after by Basilian fathers.
