At the conclusion of today’s 9:00 a.m. Divine Liturgy, we heard of the beautiful awards that two of our dear friends and fellow parishioners received recently. The following was heard:
This past week in Washington D.C., Mr. Carl Harvey and Mr. Myron Melnyk were awarded with medals from the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense in recognition of the work they have done in support of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. This is for the work our Ukrainian American Veterans have done to help bring wounded Ukrainian soldiers here to the United States where they will be receiving medical treatment which is unavailable in Ukraine. Not only is this a high honor for Carl and Myron, it is also a recognition of the support and donations the we, as a parish, have given to our Ukrainian American Veterans Post here in New Haven. Congratulations, Carl and Myron!
