|PATRIARCHAL ENCYCLICAL FOR HOLY PASCHA - 04/18/14|
The emotional state of the Lord’s disciples was grim after His Crucifixion because, by the Lord’s death on the Cross, the hopes of His disciples were dispersed that He and they would one day prevail as a political power. They had perceived the triumphant entrance of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem, following the resurrection of Lazarus and the miraculous feeding of five thousand men, with additional women and children, by five loaves of bread and two fish, as a prelude of their conquering of secular authority. The mother of two of them, moreover, requested that her two sons sit by each side of the Lord when He came to power. All these, however, dissipated as childish imaginations on account of the awful execution of Jesus Christ.

Together, as one family, we have completed the spiritual journey of Great Lent.

And with the Myrrh-bearing Women, we have received the eternal peace and experienced the deafening silence of the Cenotaph of Jesus Christ.

|Join the Giving Tuesday Movement to Encourage Spending With A Purpose - 11/29/13|
Giving Tuesday is a national movement to harness the collective power of individuals, families, organizations and businesses to transform how we think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Giving Tuesday will take place on December 3, 2013 - immediately after the materially-motivated cultural events "Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday" - and should remind us that the spirit of the holiday season should be about community and not just consumerism.
|1 December, 2013 - UKRAINIAN ORTHODOX LEAGUE SUNDAY - 11/28/13|
The first Sunday of December has been set aside as "UOL SUNDAY" for the past thirty some years in the life of our Holy Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA. This is a day when both Senior and Junior local chapters in parishes around the nation invite their parish members to join in a celebration of the UOL'S accomplishments and vision in living up to its motto: "Dedicated to our Church - Devoted to her Youth". It is also a day when those chapters invite parishioners to join this, one of the Central Organizations of the Church, to become part of the UOL'S mission of service and love and a day to reach out to sister parishes of our Church with encouragement to establish new UPL chapters where none exists.
|Archpastoral Message for 2013 Thanksgiving Day: We Offer Praise and Thanksgiving - 11/27/13|
Once again, our nation pauses to celebrate Thanksgiving. Our tables will be spilling over with food and our homes will resonate with laughter and conversation as we gather to celebrate this special day. Thanksgiving is a quintessentially North American holiday. It is a day when we remember the hardships faced by the first immigrants to this great land, and the gracious kindness with which the native people greeted them. The familiar traditions that surround the origins of Thanksgiving Day when the Native Americans and the settlers of the Plymouth colony came together indicate that gratitude to God was the focus of that first thanksgiving feast. Gratitude to God expressed by those two very different peoples sharing with one another at the same table.
