    Parish Picnic Sunday, June 24

    It was a wonderful time for all. Thanks to all who made it possible and all who came to make it a special day.


    And Welcome to Fr. Vasil and his family - Pani Olena and children daughter, Solomiya and sons Vasil and Andriy. As you can imagine, there are many things that they will need to set up their new life in the United States.  Gift Cards to the family as they establish their new home are greatly appreciated. Your gift cards will help them get settled.  Cards for grocery stores, stores like Wal-Mart, Target or VISA Gift cards would be greatly appreciated.



    The Annual Marriage Jubilee Celebration for our area will take place on Sunday, September 23 at St. Mary’s in Hillsborough. The Divine Liturgy will be celebrated at 3:00 PM and a dinner will follow at St. Mary’s Parish Center. This celebration will honor all Marriage Jubilarians beginning with their fifth wedding anniversary and every fifth anniversary thereafter. If your 5th, 10th, 15th … 50th, 60th, etc. Wedding Anniversary falls during 2018 please contact Fr. Vasil or Fr. Ed Higgins.

    Parking Lot Lighting

    The lighting on the first two poles in the parking lot, the shrine and the parish center has been repaired and upgraded.  This was a necessary project to insure your safety during night time services.  This improved lighting will illume the parking lot offering much better visibility as you walk to and from your cars. The project was necessary – but costly ($5,000) - not as much as repairing and replacing the poles that had been destroyed by age and weather. Please consider making a special gift to assist in paying for this project.  Any and all gifts will be greatly appreciated.


    Please Pray for the Sick
