This year the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGCC) in Kazakhstan, which has a long and dramatic history in this country, experienced a significant event. On September 15 in the capital Astana the Church of St. Joseph the Betrothed was consecrated. It was built over 10 years.

On October 31, Greek Catholics celebrated the feast of Blessed Theodore (Romzha). Blessed Theodore is a martyr of the last century who stood up for the Greek Catholic Church against communist oppression from his appointment in 1944 as Bishop of the Greek Catholic Eparchy of Mukachevo until his death, which was a carefully prepared assassination that was completed in the hospital of Mukachevo in 1947.

The Passaic eparchy has 77 priests at 84 parishes, and serves Ruthenian Catholics along the Atlantic coast of the United States.
