Our parish hosted Bishop Andriy for an hierarchical Liturgy on October 22nd to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the founding of our "Holy Protection" Sisterhood.  Fr. Bohdan, Fr. Lubomyr Hluchaniuk, Deacon Borys Melnyk, Subdeacon Franko Diakowsky and the altar servers of the parish concelebrated and served.  Our choir, under the direction of Lucy Ireland, sang the Liturgy very prayerfully.  Following the Liturgy everyone enjoyed a wonderful meal in the Fellowship Room.  Our Parish Council President, Dr. Paul Slavchenko, presented our Sisterhood President, Tamara Nelipa, with a beautiful framed photograph of the sisterhood as a memento.

“The first thing to say about Time and Despondency is 'Perfect timing!' More and more I hear about and speak with people struggling with despondency. In an extremely readable and refreshingly practical way, Nicole Roccas provides wisdom and advice about the struggle with despondency that can connect to the modern reader and is also grounded in the ancient wisdom of the fathers of the Church. This book would be a welcome read for anyone who has struggled with or known anyone to struggle with the ancient and modern 'noon day demon': despondency.” --Fr. Philip Rogers, St. John's Orthodox Church (Memphis, TN)

We look forward to seeing you!
