VESPERS FOR FORGIVENESS SUNDAY: Remember the date for the services to be held in our Church on Sunday, February 14 at 4:00PM.
Come and begin The Great Fast (Lent) in the true Christian spirit of forgiveness, with our beautiful Vesper Evening Prayer Service composed especially for the evening before the first day of The Great Fast. All our parishioners from all our parishes are welcome and encouraged to attend and participate. The Clergy and Laity of the North Anthracite Ukrainian Catholic Protopresbytery (Deanery) will gather on this date to pray together in unity, as we prepare to journey with our Lord Jesus through the 40-day Great Fast, in preparation for Holy Week and Pascha.
After the services everyone is welcome to enjoy the cover dish meal that will be prepared by all the parishes in the deanery.
DESSERTS: If you can help in the servings of desserts please bring your baked goods, puddings or any other goodies to the church on Saturday, February 13th. We would appreciate your help in this matter.
