2018 SLOATSBURG PILGRIMAGE: The Sister Servants of Mary Immaculate cordially invite you to the 64TH Dormition Pilgrimage which will be celebrated on August 11-12, 2018 at their motherhouse of Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate, 150 Sisters Servants Lane, Sloatsburg, NY 10974. This year’s pilgrimage is particularly special, because His Beatitude, Patriarch Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the Head of our Church is visiting Sloatsburg. His Excellency Bishop Paul is asking all the priests of the Stamford Eparchy to transfer all Sunday Liturgies to Saturday evening so that the priests may attend the Sloatsburg pilgrimage this year. For this reason there will be NO Liturgies on Sunday, August 12, 2018. Please make sure you attend the 4PM Divine Liturgy on Saturday, August 11th, 2018 at 4:00PM. The theme for the pilgrimage this year is: Mary, our Model of Prayer “Do whatever He tells you…”. The schedule for the pilgrimage will be in the Diocesan newspapers and is on the website: www.ssmi-us.org. Reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist will be available throughout the entire weekend along with many other events especially a Pontifical Divine Liturgy on Sunday celebrated by the Patriarch. If you plan to take part in this year’s pilgrimage, please call our parish office at (315) 252-5573 and let me know.

Parking lot: – Dear parishioners, I have verbally informed you last weekend at all the Divine Liturgies that we have obtained the City’s Permit to pave the Parking lot. I spoke this past week with the Vitale company and unfortunately they are booked until the beginning of October. This is understandable considering the fact that the company makes plans for these types of jobs months ahead. However, I just want to let you know that the Company promised to try to schedule us hopefully for September. Let us continue to thank God for many blessings that our parish community has and I also want to thank all of you who supported and continue to support this important project.

BISHOP’S APPEAL 2018 – Dear parishioners, annually during the month of May we start to support a special Eparchial fundraising called the Charities Appeal {or Bishop’s Appeal}. Our parish’s goal for this year is to collect $ 5,800 to support the Stamford Eparchy in its charitable actions. Through your generosity we were always successfully to support our Stamford Eparchy. A special form for the Bishop’s Appeal will be included in the Summer Festival envelope and mailed to all parishioners. Thank you for your support!
