WHY DO UKRAINIANS CELEBRATE Christmas on January 7th rather than December 25th? Many people wonder why the Ukrainian date is thirteen days later and only a few people are aware that it is related to a change from the calendar which was in use two thousand years ago.

Tradition plays a great part in the lives of people of Ukrainian origin and it is for this reason that they have continued to celebrate Christmas on the old date that would have been observed by all Christians.

The Roman calendar that had been in use since the eighth century B.C. originally started the year on March 1 and had 10 months as the names of the months themselves indicate, September (7), October (8), November (9) and December (10). Eventually two months were added, Januarius and Februarius, and the year was started on January. However, it was only 355 days long so it had over ten days error and the seasons and the calendar over the years continued to lose their correct relationship.

 SANCTUARY LIGHT:  The Sanctuary Light is requested to burn the week of

Jan. 7 – 15 by Mike & Dolores Sinko in memory of their Parents – Michael & Mary Sinko and John & Helen Kurkoski.

ALTAR CANDLES: The Altar Candles are requested to burn at all services for the Month of January by Ann Beshada in memory of husband Andrew Beshada.

BLESSING OF HOMES: If you would like to have your home blessed please call Father Roman at 735-2262 or place your name, address and telephone number in the collection basket. Father would like to bless everyone’s home.

To Prepare your home for the Blessing please have ready:

A lighted candle, Icon or Cross, bowl of sanctified water taken from the church at the celebration of the Feast of The Theophany, covered with a clean white cloth. Place these items on a table. All radios, TV’s and stereos should be turned off. All who are present should come to the table where the service of Blessing will be and all should join in the singing of the responses. The first name of those for whom special prayers are to be offered, whether living or deceased, should be presented on a clear piece of paper. The deceased can be indicated with a small cross before the name. Blessing of Home envelopes should be presented at the time of the Priest’s Blessing of the Home. Please put your name, address and telephone number if you are putting the envelope in the collection basket.

 

COUNCIL MEETING: A meeting of the Parish Council will be held on Wednesday, January 11th in the Church Hall at 6:30 PM. All members are asked to please attend this meeting as many subjects will be discussed.

 

STATEMENT: If you are interested in receiving a personal statement of your offerings please put you name in the collection basket. It will be available to you as soon as possible.
