Thank you for your link.
Please allow me to humbly return to my original question - can anyone provide me with an authentic copy of the Particular Law of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church?
Perhaps I should add a couple other questions. First, is the document linked by the Archeparchy of Winnipeg authentic? Second, if it’s authentic, to whom does it apply? Does it only apply to Ukrainian Catholic in Canada or the Winnipeg Archdiocese, or does it also apply to Ukrainian Catholics outside of Canada?
I am particularly interested in the following language in the document:
"Subjects of Particular Law
“Can. 1 (CCEO c. 1) The canons of this particular law affect all and solely the faithful of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.” There does not appear to be a territorial limitation to Canada or Western Canada in here.
Then, at the end of the document, there is the following information about the drafting and translation:
"+Sophron Mudri, general chair of Administration of Justice of the Synod of Bishops of the
"Rev. Dr. Oleh Kaskiw, Promoter of Justice for the eparchy of Ivano-Frankivsk
"Rev. Lubomir Sanotsky, Court Director of the eparchy of Ivano-Frankivsk, Judicial Vicar of the eparchy of Ivano-Frankivsk
"English translation (2006):
“Rev. Andrei Kachur, JCL, Judicial Vicar of the Inter-eparchial Marriage Tribunal for the
Ukrainian Catholic Church in Canada”
So it seems that the English Translation is Canada-specific, but the Editorial Commission which drafted these canons (presumably in the Ukrainian language, which I am ashamed to say I do not know), comes from Ukraine. Were they simply concerned with drafting particular canons for Canada, or the western part of Canada, or were they trying to draft canons binding on all the faithful of the U.G.C.C.?
