Андрія зібралися парафіяни, працівники, члени Консисторії та гості, щоб відслужити молебень за мир та добробут України та її народу. Молебень відслужили первоієрарх УПЦ США Високопреосвященніший митрополит Антоній та Преосвященніший єпископ Даниїл - голова Консисторії Церкви у співслужінні місцевого духовенства.

Jesus&rsquo; baptism signified not only His own divine identity as Son of God but also disclosed the glory of the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Thus, along with the themes of the sanctification of the waters, purification from sin and renewal, Theophany also celebrates the revelation of God to the world. &ldquo;Theophany&rdquo; means divine manifestation &ndash; the manifestation of God to the world as Trinity, the three great Lights of Father, Son and Spirit, one in essence and glory.</p></div> Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA http://uocofusa.org/news_150119_1.html Велика Вечеря http://uocofusa.org/news_141225_1.html Thu, 25 Dec 2014 00:00:00 -0500 <div><img border="0" hspace="5" vspace="0" align="left" src="http://uocofusa.org/display_image.php?ext=jpg&relativeimage=images/icons/Holy_Supper.jpg&archive=0&final_h=66&final_w=90&percent=100"><p style="text-align: justify;">Від самого початку історії людства наш Спаситель закликає людину прокинутися від гріховного сну, голос Божий ми чуємо через читання св.
