Prayer for Ukraine - Молитва за Україну

Almighty Father, You said that when two or three are gathered in your name – you would be among them. Remembering Your words and having received the land of Ukraine for our heritage; We ask you today to prove us mindful of this great blessing. Bless our ancestral homeland Ukraine and these United States with honorable works, sound learning, and good manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance. Defend liberty which is an expression of your Divine Will. During this time of difficulty throughout our ancestral homeland Ukraine fill our hearts with gratitude, and grant the people of Ukraine, and all of us the grace to continue to trust in You and Your mercy as we did in previous days of trouble. We ask this for we know that you are a gracious and loving God in whom we are blessed through the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, always now and ever and to the ages of ages. AMEN.

Всемогутній Отче, Ти сказав, що, коли двоє або троє зберуться в ім’я Твоє - Ти будеш серед них. Згадуючи Твої слова і отримавши землю України як спадщину; Ми просимо Тебе сьогодні, щоб поміг нам пам’ятати це велике благословення. Благослови нашу Батьківщину - Україну та Сполучені Штати Америки почесними ділами, голосом науки та хорошими манерами. Спаси нас від насильства, розбрату і заколоту, від гордості та зарозумілості. Захисти свободу, яка є вираженням Твоєї Божественної Волі. В цей період складності по всій нашій прабатьківщині Україні наповни наші серця вдячністю, і дай народу України, і всім нам благодать продовжувати вірити в Тебе і Твоє милосердя, як ми робили в попередні тривожні дні. Ми просимо про це, тому що знаємо, що Ти добрий і люблячий Бог, в якого ми благословенні через Отця і Сина і Святого Духа, завжди, нині і повсякчас і на віки віків. Амінь.

Welcome to Saint John “The Baptist” Ukrainian Orthodox Church

Our Parish is a member of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the U.S.A. Our Church is a part of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople with His All-Holiness, Patriarch Bartholomew being the 270th Successor to the Apostle Andrew.

Our Parish is part of the Eastern Eparchy (Diocese). Our ruling Bishop is His Eminence, Metropolitan Antony of New York and Washington, D.C. .

Our Church doors are always open to anyone who hears the voice of Christ calling them to “Come and See.” Although we are extremely proud of our Ukrainian heritage, most of the Divine Services are celebrated in English and are sung according to our traditional melodies. It is the purpose of our Parish Family to bring the Gospel message of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to as many people who hear the call of Christ and are searching for a Church that follows the Apostolic tradition that was given to the first Apostles by Christ, Himself. Our Church is a Church that was born on Pentecost Sunday and has traveled the road of 2000 years steeped in Apostolic tradition and Apostolic succession in its lineage of Bishops.

In the future, this part of the Web Page will contain Parish News—explanations of our Services, a more in depth look at events happening in our Parish as well as in the Orthodox world. If you are interested in learning more about our Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the U.S.A., then return to our home page and click on the section for our Diocese.

We hope that you will e-mail us at the bottom address of our Home Page and let us know what you think of our page. Please feel free to e-mail us any questions that you might have about our Parish Family or our Orthodox Faith.

May God bless you and keep you always in His tender loving care!

STEWARDSHIP PRAYER

My Church is composed of people like me.
I help make it what it is.
It will be friendly if I am.
Its pews will be filled, if I help fill them.
It will go great work, if I work.
It will make generous gifts to many causes,
if I am a generous giver.
It will bring other people
into its worship and fellowship,
if I invite and bring them.
It will be a church of loyalty and love,
of fearlessness and faith,
and a church with a noble spirit,
if I, who make it what it is,
am filled with these same things.
Therefore, with the help of God,
I shall dedicated myself
to the task of being all the things
that I want my church to be.

AMEN.
