Ukrainian Orthodox League Begins Preparations for Thanksgiving Tithing Program!
The delegates of the 62th Annual Ukrainian Orthodox League Convention reinforced the need for the organization and its membership to serve the less fortunate. They set a specific goal to sponsor at least three projects to help individuals in need. The first of these projects allows you as Ukrainian Orthodox League members and chapters to contribute to our Ukrainian Orthodox Mission parishes throughout the country.
Currently, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA has several officially recognized mission parishes. Among some of them are Four Evangelists in Bel Air, MD; St. Anthony of the Desert in Las Cruces, NM; St. Nicholas in Dover, DE; Holy Trinity in Whalleysville, MD; and Holy Trinity in Seattle, WA.
Chapters and individual members are being called upon to save the receipts for all expenses that they incur in preparing for Thanksgiving Day – food, tablecloths, centerpieces – and donate 10% of the amount spent to the mission parishes of the UOC. Junior and Senior U.O.L. Chapters are also requested to also make a donation to this worthwhile cause.
All donations should be made out to the Ukrainian Orthodox League and sent to:

As Thanksgiving approaches, we hope that you will take a moment to give thanks to our Lord for all that He has given us. We hope you will help support such a worthy cause.
