Bishop Paul requests assistance for the hurricane survivors

A Message from the Eparchy of Stamford regarding the hurricane tragedy

Dear Reverend Fathers,

In the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, which devastated many parts of Texas and Florida, as well as some neighboring states, I am, on the directive of His Excellency, Bishop Paul Chomnycky, OSBM, asking you to hold a special collection in your parish – as soon as possible – to come to the aid of the many who desperately need it.

We have no doubt that your parishioners, having witnessed the devastation on TV, understand and empathize with those suffering and will recognize the importance of giving support and of being as generous as possible. Please remind them that we are, indeed, our brothers’ keepers!

Please forward the collected funds to the Chancery by the end of September, so that they can be transmitted to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, which will then distribute the monies to those suffering the aftermath of the hurricane devastations.

Fr Ihor
Vicar General of the Eparchy of Stamford

Two new seminarians for the Eparchy

Today, Father Roman Malyarchuk, the Rector of St. Basil’s Seminary (Stamford), blessed the cassocks (podryasniki) two new seminarians will wear in service of God and the Church. Pray for these our brothers, Roman Kuzmâk and Ivan Manolev. The Pídrâsnik is not simple ecclesiastical attire, but “the milk and the protection” against temptations.

Let us pray to the great and holy Mother of God for these men to receive the grace of perseverance.
