Prayers for His Beatitude Sviatoslav and for His intensions.
We are all well aware of the problems that the Ukrainian people face at this time of continued turmoil in the land. His Beatitude Sviatoslav, as head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church is always under severe pressure to guide, to support, to encourage and to defend the people of Ukrainian at this most difficult time of violence. It is truly a struggle to save the Church and the people from oppression from outside.
His Beatitude has asked us all to remember Ukraine and the needs of the people in our daily prayers.
His Excellency Bishop Stephen has asked all the parishes to pray a moleben for His Beatitude and for his intensions. Over the course of a year, each parish will have prayed at least one moleben for this intension.
Please join the people at their moleben, if possible. If not possible, please join your prayers to theirs at that time.
We also ask for your continued prayers for the people and the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church of Ukrainie on a daily basis.
In July, 2014 moleben will be prayed in the following parishes.
