►Catechesis/Church & Vacation: The parish 2016/2017 Catechetical Program concluded on Sunday, June 25 with the celebration of a Moleben service and a picnic for children and youth. The 2017/2018 Catechetical program will resume in September. I strongly urge parents and children to continue to come to church during Summer vacation. Those of you who are involved in sports or have other plans, please make sure you attend church first. Our English Divine Liturgies are: Saturday 4:00PM and Sunday 8:00AM. The Ukrainian Liturgy is on Sunday at 9:30AM. It is very important that parents set an example for their children and show them that there is no vacation from God! If you go on vacation or travel, please visit a Catholic church in the area for a Liturgy. Blessings and peace!

►BISHOP’S APPEAL 2017 – 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 2017 is to collect $ 5,800 to support the Stamford Eparchy in its charitable initiatives. Last year through your generosity, we successfully reached this goal. Recently, with the Summer Festival letter a special form for the Bishop’s appeal was included. If you do not have a form please use a regular envelope labeled: “2017 Bishop’s Appeal”. Thank you for your support!
