Treasury of Faith Museum

The  Treasury of Faith Museum is located in the Sheptytsky Educational Center (the former Cathedral School) next to the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The museum was founded by Most Reverend Archbishop Stefan Soroka, DD, DSW.

The Treasury of Faith Museum was established to manifest, as well as preserve the Catholic faith, courage, and determination of our ancestors. It reflects the roots and history of our Ukrainian Catholic Church in the United States of America.
 
The first floor hallway leads to the following rooms:  Reception, Sanctuary, Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and Liturgical. 
 
The Reception Room is where visitors gather to begin their tour of the museum.
  
Gracing the first floor hallway is a beautiful fragmented iconostas from the former Saints Peter and Paul Ukrainian Catholic Church, Plymouth, PA. 

Some of the items displayed in the Sanctuary Room are an altar, a proskomedia table, royal doors and a large icon of “Christ the King.” There are also several antimensions signed and issued by present and former bishops, including the late Archbishop Josaphat Kotsylowsky and the late Joseph Cardinal Slipiy. 
 
The iconostas from the original Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is the highlight of the “Cathedral Room.”  This room also features a large wood, wrought iron and brass pulpit, the bishop’s throne, a tabernacle, and a life sized crucifix from 1918.
 
The Liturgical Room has a large display of liturgical books, shrouds-plaschenitsia, monstrances, tabernacles, hand crosses and sacred vessels from various churches located throughout the Archeparchy.
