The Connecticut State Ukrainian Day Committee wishes to invite all parishioners to attend this year’ s Ukrainian Day Festival to be held on Sunday, September 9, 2018. This Festival is the 51st festival and a time to renew friendships of the past and make new ones. Please make an effort to attend. The Festival will be held on the grounds of St. Basil Seminary, 161 Glenbrook Rd., Stamford, CT. The day will begin with a Pontifical Divine Liturgy at 11:00 AM, celebrated by the Most Rev. Basil H. Losten, Bishop Emeritus. Immediately following the Divine Liturgy and throughout the day, Ukrainian food, picnic food and other refreshments will be available. In the afternoon, a lively and colorful program of Ukrainian dances, songs and music will take place, which will include dance groups from various areas of Connecticut and New York. Following the program there will be a Zabava until 8:00 PM. Tours will be given at the unique Ukrainian Museum on the grounds as well as the Diocesan Cultural Center and you can browse through the outdoor arts and crafts exhibits with over twenty vendors who have a variety of items for sale. Advance general admission tickets are $5 per person, 12 and over and are available from members of the committee in your parish or your pastor. Tickets purchased at the gate will be $10 per person. No food or liquor is to be brought onto the grounds of the festival, liquor will be confiscated by the Stamford police. This festival can only continue to exist if volunteers sign up to help out during the day. Please contact your pastor or members of the Ukrainian Day Committee in your parish to sign up. Please make that effort to volunteer; we need your assistance to continue this Festival, which helps sustain our Diocese, Seminary and our Ukrainian people.
