2010 Christmas Pastoral

CHRISTMAS PASTORAL OF THE HIERARCHS OF THE UKRAINIAN CATHOLIC CHURCH

IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

To Our Reverend Clergy, Reverend Religious, and to the Faithful,

Christ is Born!

Christmas begins with the joyful proclamation of good news.  An angel of heaven announces to the shepherds that the Savior has been born.  It is good news which cannot be contained.  It is announced and celebrated in heaven and on earth by glorious choirs and lowly shepherds.  We joyfully proclaim in our beautiful traditional way that “God is among us!”  It is constantly repeated many times during the evening Compline Service.  It is as if we cannot say it enough! 

Metropolitan Stefan Soroka’s Thanksgiving Message

Thanksgiving is a very special celebration which places great importance on our relationship with God and with our loved ones.  It is an opportunity which naturally invites us to focus on the quality of these relationships.  At the heart of these relationships is our coming to appreciate the giftedness of our journey with God and with our loved ones.  Should we not challenge ourselves to give greater priority to express our heartfelt thanksgiving to God and to loved ones?

A CALL TO PRAYER AND FOR LIVING VOICES FOR JUSTICE

A Pastoral Message from the Ukrainian Catholic and the Ukrainian Orthodox Hierarchs of United States of America and Canada

Ukrainians throughout the world will commemorate the 77th anniversary of the genocidal famine, the “HOLODOMOR”, which was perpetuated by Joseph Stalin and the Soviet regime against the people of Ukraine in 1932-33.  We will pray together for the souls of the over seven million victims of this man-made famine.  We will raise our collective voice against such oppressive measures and suffering being used in the name of any ideology.
