Ukrainian Hutsul-style temple in Northern Cambria, Pa (Spangler merged with Barnesboro and renamed North Cambria). The name of the parish is St. Mary's (A.K.A. Immaculate Conception.)  St. Mary's belongs to the Eparchy of St. Josaphat (Ukrainian Catholic) jurisdiction, USA. 

This church is dedicated to the Mother of God by the late Fr. Myron Holowinski, who promised to build a traditional Ukrainian church if he ever escaped Communist Europe.  It was built in the 1970's.   Resembles the style similar to the wooden church in Nizny Komarnik, Slovakia.
