The Ukrainian Catholic Church has a complicated history. This is evident even in its very name, which is a combination of several profound, complex, and multi-layered concepts. This name did not appear in an instant, even more so, it was not always as we know it today. The only unchanging term that has ever expressed the identity of this group of people is the word “Church.” This community has always felt itself to be a group of Christ’s disciples who, united by the hierarchy, are on the pilgrimage through history breaking and consuming the Bread of the Eucharist and the Word of God, sharing the joys and sorrows of this life. The other words in the name reflect other traits of this community’s identity and appeared at different historical moments until their configuration has become as we know it today.
