    Um…St. Peter and Paul Church was an ORTHODOX church. Assumption of the BVM (the one that is still open) is a CATHOLIC church. There is a big difference, even if they both use similar-looking crosses. Orthodox Churches are separate from Catholicism and generally do not consider Catholics to be members of their church. That is why there were 2 different churches in the first place (St. Peter and Paul for the Orthodox and Assumption of the BVM for the Ukrainian Catholics…plus St. Ignatius for the Roman Catholics).
