Praying for Ukraine

We continue to pray together for God`s protection for the people of Ukraine against any foreign invasion and military aggression.
Pray that Ukraine becomes a peaceful and unified country.

Every Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Ukrainian Catholic Church and the Bishop Velychkovsky National Martyr’s Shrine, the community gathers to pray for Ukraine.  The hour of prayer includes praying the Rosary, praying the Blessed Vasyl Chaplet and praying special prayers specifically for peace and safety in Ukraine. You can also join online at the Shrine’s YouTube Channel and Facebook.
“O Blessed Vasyl, you lived through the danger of war, protect you people from all enemies.
Blessed Bishop and Martyr Vasyl, pray to God for us.”
