First Confession Class 2017

Pentecost - 17/06/04

     Eight children of St. Vladimir Cathedral parish family after weeks of instruction receive for the first time the Sacrament of Confession on Saturday evening June 3, 2017 and receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion on Sunday June 4, 2017 during the Divine Liturgy. 

     Sunday was a special, holy day in the life of the Church.   It was Pentecost, the day on which the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles and gave them the ability to go out and preach God's word to His people.  (Acts 2.1–4)

Ukrainians refer to Pentecost as "Green Holy Day" because their world is "green" with spring leaves and plants beginning new life.  May the eight children who received for the first time the sacrament of Holy Confession be blessed.

Commemoration of the Holodomor

Commemoration of the Holodomor - 17/05/21

     Lest we forget the parish of St. Vladimir Cathedral clergy and faithful including and especially the youth commemorated the Holodomor, the Artificial Famine imposed on the Ukrainian people in 1932-1933 by the Soviet government. This commemoration is done annually.

     This year, rain brought the faithful indoors into the temple.  Usually the memorial service is served by the monument in the parish side yard.  The Famine Monument is dedicated to the over 7 million souls who were forced into starvation by the Soviet government.  A brief history of the Holodomyr may be found by following this link.

     Following the service a program included teenage members of the Junior UOL, the youth of St. Vladimir Cathedral, and the students of the Taras Shevchenko School of Ukrainian Studies.   These parish youths spoke in both English and Ukrainian to describe the depravity and horrors of starvation in Ukraine, a country known for its wealth of fertile land, and yet, too many Ukrainians were forced to starve.  

     May their memory be eternal.  Vichnaya Pamyat.
