THANK YOU to Mr. Paul Zalonski for his donation of the icon of Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians to our church. Written by master iconographer Fabrizio Diomedi, the icon depicts the Holy Theotokos, with the Child Jesus over her heart, spreading her protective mantle around a representative gathering of recent Christian martyrs, men and women, young and old, from East and West; priests, religious and laypersons, martyrs of Latin and Eastern Catholicism, including Armenian, Byzantine, Coptic and Syriac traditions.
THANK YOU to Mr. Michael Muryn, Ms. Mary Muryn and Mr. Paul Zalonski for preparing a new Divine Liturgy Missal for use in our church. Originally a Knights of Columbus project, these Missals have a larger format with bigger, easier to read printing.
