Bulletin for Sunday, January 24, 2021

Christ is Born! Glorify Him! Христос Рождається! Славіте Його!

PROVINCE LOCKDOWN/STAY AT HOME MANDATE/PUBLIC SERVICES ARE CANCELLED. On the Sunday of the Publican and the Pharisee [Jan. 24] as well as on the following two Sundays, our focus is directed to consider the implications to our salvation and ultimately life everlasting, through repentance. Essentially, repentance is the door through which we must pass as we journey – during the forthcoming Great & Holy Fast – to the celebration of Holy Pascha. ...Being humble is hard, and we fear it will make us vulnerable. It surely will, and that is a good thing. Yet humility remains a challenging spiritual posture because we live with incessant social demand for achievement and power. Joan Chittister writes: “Lack of humility is a social virus, a plague that infects the whole culture.” She offers this definition: humility is “the strength to separate our sense of the meaning of life from what we do.” PLEASE REMEMBER IN YOUR PRAYERS / ПРОСИМ О МОЛИТВУ ЗА ЗДОРОВ’Я ... all our parishioners who are in hospitals, care homes, and shut-ins. Please come to church and pick up your sealed container of Holy Water this SUNDAY, JANUARY 24 between 12 noon and 1:00 pm. If you have not already done so, you may also pick up your 2021 offering envelopes and a wall calendar. Святе Богоявлення Господнє, Йордан - НОВО ПОСВЯЧЕНА ВОДА є при вході до Церкви в особистих пляшках. Будь ласка, заходьте в неділю, 24 січня, з 12:00 до 1-ї щоб підібрати для себе. Jordan Zoom Service Experience “Thank you for tonite! After any of our Zoom meetings I receive such an uplift spiritually and mentally. I can't explain what it is as it's more how I feel but these meetings give me more than the streaming from local churches. Maybe it's due to the fact I belong here and feel like this is home. The comfort and safety is felt with you and within our group. God Bless You Father Terry!” A Parishioner It is time to start the new year with the Annual Meeting of our branch of the Ukrainian Catholic Women's League.
