New Church (Old Calendar)


On January 7 in Chicago’s Ukrainian Village, church bells ring for hours in celebration of Christmas according to the traditional Ukrainian calendar. On this morning birds have joined the joyful noise and an occasional drop of water from last nights thunderstorm plunks down on a nearby windowpane.
