The Ukrainian Catholic Brotherhood (БУК) is the official organization of the men of the Ukrainian
Catholic Church of Canada. It acts in co-operation and agreement
with the Ukrainian Catholic Church of Canada. The aim of the Brotherhood is centered on the Ukrainian Catholic faith,
strengthening it by supporting, enriching and developing the
religious and spiritual life of the parish. Membership in the
Brotherhood is the expectation and obligation of every male
parishioner in parishes where Brotherhood Branches exist. The parish
priest is usually the spiritual advisor for the Brotherhood.
The UCB was founded in the prairie province of Saskatchewan in Canada in 1932. A young newly arrived priest from Ukraine, Rev. Dr. Stephan Semchuk became its ideologist. He was able to convince a small group of teachers and active farmers and got them involved in the life of the Church in accordance with the Catholic Lay Movement.
