MARCH: The Patron for March is St. John the Apostle. St. John was one of the most beloved Apostles of Christ. His Gospel is a sublime book of Divine Love. He teaches us to love God with our whole heart.
Virture: Love of God. “I shall exercise myself in loving God with my whole heart. I will do everything, fulfill all my duties, and accept all sufferings for the love of my God. In all circumstances of my life I will always repeat: ‘O my Dear God, I love You!”

PLASHCHANYCIA (HOLY SHROUD): A new Plashchanycia has been purchased for our Church. This Shroud was made possible by Mrs. Florence Kloap and family with the donations she received in memory of her husband Mr. William Kloap by her family and friends. It is a beautiful painting on Canvas by an artist in Ukraine and brought to us by Rev. Vasyl Repela when he visited the USA in December. Father Roman will have the blessing of the Plashchanycia on the Saturday of Palm Sunday, April 4th, after the 4:00 PM Divine Liturgy. A cabinet to place the Shroud into after it is removed from the Altar after the Easter Season is being built by Holoviak’s in Berwick. This Cabinet is made possible by the generous donation of Catherine & Charles Halloway and the donation made to our Building Fund in memory of Peter Hubiak, John Smiga, Jr. and Frank T. Wido.

CONFESSIONS: Father Roman invites you to make your most important confession for the Easter season. Father will be available before all the services, Wednesday, before Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts, Friday, before Stations of the Cross and before both Saturday and Sunday Divine Liturgies.
