Слава Ісусу Христу! Слава на віки!  Glory To Jesus Christ!  Glory Forever!  Пресвятая Богородице спаси нас!  Dear Sisters and Brothers, 45 РОКІВ -  Сердечна подяка усім вам, дорогі парохіяни і приятелі, за Вашу участь у Св. Літургії та за Ваші побажання з нагоди 45-ліття мого священства. Хай Господь благословить Вас усіх!  My Dear Parishioners and Friends,   I wish to extend my deepest and most heartfelt thanks for  honouring the 45 years of my priesthood.  I am most indebted to your continued generosity, support, and friendship. Please remember that a pastor is only as good as his flock.  I am blessed by your dedication and your constant vigilance toward the needs of our parish.  Being your pastor is a blessing because every time we meet in prayer, break bread together, or share in our religious traditions, we invite the Lord to be there among us.  And there is no greater blessing to one’s priesthood, then the presence of our Lord among the faithful. May the good Lord guide us as we journey through these ever changing and uncertain times.  It was Metropolitan Andrew Sheptytsky who wrote: “In the parish where the faithful venerate Christ the Saviour,  spiritual life begins to flourish,  people flock to church, the number of those who receive Holy Eucharist is increased, and concord and love reign....”  ♦️БЛАГОСЛОВЕННЯ УЧНІВ ТА ВЧИТЕЛІВ в неділю 19/20-го вересня. ♦️BLESSING OF STUDENTS AND TEACHERS weekend of Sunday Sept. 19/20. Боже, Отче всякого світла і знання! Споглянь ласкавим оком на наших дітей-школярів. Поблагослови їх, Господи, щоб вони набули у школі знань, потрібних для життя, а перед усім ушляхетнили свою душу і серце. Поблагослови їх, Господи, і захорони від небезпек, та дай, щоб пильно прикладалися до науки. Поблагослови їх, Господи, і охороняй їх перед злим товариством, та вчини, щоб вони дружили лише з дітьми добрими і побожними. Поблагослови, Господи, також і вчителів, щоб їхній вплив на дітей був спасенним; нехай, Господи, ця школа принесе нашим дітям дочасне, а ще більше духовне добро. Амінь.

Sermon #26 is attached Prayer in the Time of the Coronavirus Comfort us, Oh Lord, for we are like your disciples on the storm-tossed seas, unsettled by what lies ahead. We turn to You, our Healer and Guide, to still our hearts in our time of need and hear our prayer: Heal those who are sick with the coronavirus and protect the elderly and most vulnerable. Give strength to all who tend to our health and wisdom to researchers who work toward a cure. Open our eyes and hearts that we may look beyond our immediate needs to care for others who need help. Through the Holy Spirit, guide our leaders to make wise decisions for the welfare of all the people they serve. Grant eternal rest to those who have died from the virus. May Mary, Our Mother, who has heard our pleas in the storms of our lives, intercede to her Son, that we may find healing and a prompt end to this illness. Mary, Star of the Sea, pray for us.  Пресвятая Богородице спаси нас! Jesus Christ, Our Lord, and Saviour, heal us. Amen. Divine Liturgy Schedule  Saturday - 5:30 pm Divine Liturgy in English  Sunday - 8:30 am Divine Liturgy in Ukrainian  Go in peace and faith. If you are tired, may you find rest. If you are anxious, may you find peace. If you are lonely, may you find friends. If you are troubled, may you experience God’s healing. If you are dying, may you find new life. Always know that nothing can separate us from God’s love. May God, our Creator, bless us and nourish us. May Christ, the Wounded Healer, touch us and make us whole. May the Spirit of God, continually call us to new life and fill us with God’s life. Amen.
