Bulletin for Sunday, August 16

Слава Ісусу Христу! Слава на віки!  Glory To Jesus Christ!  Glory Forever!                                       ⛱ HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY SUMMER!⛱

 Dear Sisters and Brothers, ♦️OUR CHURCH IS NOW OPEN.   PLEASE FOLLOW ALL HEALTH AND SAFETY PROCEDURES WHEN ATTENDING.♦️ ♦️Ми живемо у світі, де похорон важливіший, ніж покійник; де весілля важливіше, ніж кохання; де зовнішність важливіша за розум. Ми живемо у культурі упаковки, що зневажає вміст”Едуардо Ґалеано ♦️“We live in the world where the funeral matters more than the dead, the wedding more than love and the physical rather than the intellect. We live in the container culture, which despises the content.” Eduardo Galeano Summer Schedule  Saturday - 5:30 pm Divine Liturgy in English    Sunday - 8:30 am Divine Liturgy in Ukrainian  Let us continue to pray: For all who are grieving the loss of loved ones due to Covid-19; for all those who are ill with COVID-19 and their families; and for all of us who are navigating this strange new world, that we may receive God’s comfort, strength, and peace. For all essential workers, who continue to put themselves at risk to care for the sick and most vulnerable, maintain our food supply, deliver supplies, keep our public services running, and lead us through this crisis. On Saturday, August 15 at 1:00 p.m. a Moleben will be offered to celebrate the Feast of the Dormition which commemorates the falling asleep of Mary and her bodily resurrection. Gathering will be held in the garden of the Taskey residence in Etobicoke for parish UCWLC members. Please email if you plan to attend and for more directions. 

Fr. Terry has recorded a Reflection #22.  See attachment. THE FEAST OF THE DORMITION – will be celebrated on the weekend of Sunday, August 16. The Feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos celebrates the wondrous way in which the Theotokos left this earthly life and was taken into heaven in a miraculous way: both body and soul. 

 Holy Tradition tells us that all the Apostles, except Thomas, were transported mystically to Jerusalem in order to be with the Mother of God as she died. When Thomas arrived the next day, they opened the tomb so that he could say his farewell. They found only an empty tomb filled with sweet-smelling flowers. Blessing of flowers – at the end of each Divine Liturgy. May the fragrance and beauty of flowers bless your homes as a sign of the loving presence of the Mother of God. Thank you Bill for repairing loose tiles on the front step of the church entrance and bringing to our attention the need for additional work.  God bless you!  Report concerning repair: This is what has been done so far . Both corners were loose . Very bad mortar and lots of freeze/thaw action . The repair that was done on the south side was done incorrectly. Bill set the tiles in a mortar bed . The front entrance  bricks and cement facade need to be repointed. ♦️A  NEW FILM "HUTSULKA KSENYA” IS CURRENTLY STREAMING ON AMAZON. IT'S FUNNY, ECCENTRIC, ORIGINAL, GREAT MUSIC, AND FEATURES THE BEAUTIFUL SCENERY OF THE CARPATHIAN MOUNTAINS.   VIEW THE TRAILER HERE: “Боже, дай мені спокій прийняти те, що я не можу змінити, сміливість змінити те, що я можу, і мудрість знати різницю.” FINANCIAL SUPPORT IN UNCERTAIN TIMES ♦️Дякую парафіянам, які продовжують фінансово підтримувати парафію, відмовляючись, передаючи електронні повідомлення та надсилаючи регулярні пожертви. Для багатьох це фінансово важкий час, і тому вашого часу, таланту та молитов вистачає. Однак, якщо у вас є засоби, будь ласка, не забувайте про потреби парафії. Крім того, пам’ятайте про бідних у своїх громадах та пожертвуйте в банку харчування. ♦️Thank you for your continued generous financial support. We all look forward to the day when our parish life will return to normal.
