In today’s Catholic culture, we often act like we have quarantined our faith from others. Yet we don’t have a virus – we are faithful Catholics who have Jesus in our lives! Let’s learn and share ideas how to be proactive! Book study group is going to begin reading a new book by Marcel LeJeune The Contagious Catholic: The Art of Practical Evangelization. Everyone is welcome! If you have questions, talk to Halyna Shevchuk 

The Blessing of Fruit

On this Feast Day, fruit is brought to our Churches to be blessed for eating. Traditional practice includes the blessing of grapes (a reminder that we must abide in the True Vine, Jesus Christ). The blessing of grapes, as well as other fruits and vegetables on this day is the most beautiful and adequate sign of the final transfiguration of all things in Christ. It signifies the ultimate flowering and fruitfulness of all creation in God’s Paradise where all will be transformed by the glory of the Lord.

NEW ACTIVITY FOR CHILDREN - COLORING PAGE - see the Catechism page for a picture to color!!!

We, as the Ukrainian Catholic Church, celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration on August 6th.
The feast commemorates when Jesus took the apostles Peter, James and John with Him up upon Mount Tabor, and while they were on the mountain Jesus was transfigured; appearing in His divinity.
His face shone like the sun, and His garments became dazzling white. Moses and Elijah appeared with Jesus, talking to Him. Peter declared how good it was for them to be there and expressed the desire to build three booths: one Moses, one for Elijah and one for Jesus.
While Peter was speaking, a bright cloud over shadowed them. A voice came from the cloud saying – “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to Him.”
When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces filled with awe. Jesus came to them and told them to not be afraid. When the three looked up they saw only Jesus.
As Jesus and His disciples came down from the mountain, He told them not to speak of what they had seen until He had risen from the dead.

The wearing of masks has now been mandated by the Governor while in Summit County and when out in public, including when attending worship services.
