St. John, Theologian


Similarly to Shlyakhtova, Yavirky forms part of the westerly outpost of Ukrainian ethnic territory. It is interesting that the tserkva here did not possess any lands or forests to support the parish priest. The tserkva was used by 1500 parishioners from Javirky and the nearby villages of Bila Voda and Chorna Voda. Today the tserkva is used as a Polish kostel. YAVIRKY
