Slava Isusu Khrestu

Sielos ilgesys has a point!

I grew up in an area where there were many ethnic communities and churches.

They were not known by the terms Roman Catholic, Ukrainian Greek Catholic, or Greek Orthodox. Everyone referred to them as " The Slovak Church, The Polish Church, The Italian Church, The Ukrainian Church or The Greek Church". But there were others of of western European origin know simply as, " St Elizabeth's, St. Margret's, St. Patrick's Holy Family ".

Interesting

Unworthy

Same here Kolya. This is what we heard as kids back in the 1940's:
Polish Church, Slovak Church, Irish Church, German Church, Uhorsky Church [Ruthenian Catholic], Nasha Tserkva [Ukrainian Catholic], Kicker Church [Polish National and Ukrainian Orthodox Church], "Toe Kissers" [Ruthenian and Ukrainian Greek Catholics as referred to by Ukrainian Orthodox] and "Whitewash Catholics [Episcopalians/Anglicans]..
As we grew into adulthood we realized that "Kicker Church", "Toe Kissers", etc. were terribly derogatory. Fortunately, a thing of the past.
