St. Vladimir Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral in Parma, OH prays for the Fallen Victims
As we know, there have been many tragic events in Ukraine. The worst of all of the happenings were last week, where many people have either been killed or heavily injured. All of these activists were fighting for their own Ukrainian freedom. In the memory of the deceased activists in Ukraine, on February 22nd, 2014 the St. Vladimir Ukrainian Orthodox clergy and the staff, and students of the Taras Shevchenko School of Ukrainian Studies in Parma, Ohio held a memorial service with lit candles and sang “Memory Eternal.”
Also, after the memorial service the clergy, staff, and students sang “God Grant them Many Years” for those protesters that survived these three months of revolution in Ukraine. Afterwards, all sang the National Anthem of Ukraine, “Ukraine has not Yet Perished.” The Ukrainian community of Parma, Ohio offered their most sincere prayers and support for those who have been deeply affected by this revolution that could have been prevented, in Ukraine.
