BLESSING OF HOUSES FOR THEOPHANY: Fr. Andrii is blessing the homes of our parishioners with Theophany waters. Visits can be made in the morning, afternoon, or evening. If you have a preference, please call or text Fr. Andrii at (860) 989-5748. Otherwise, the father will contact you to schedule a day and time.

2024 CHURCH ENVELOPES: Please pick up your 2024 church envelopes at the church entrance and use only them to pay your dues in order to avoid confusion at the end of the year.

ЦЕРКОВНІ КОНВЕРТИ 2024: Будь ласка, візьміть свої церковні конверти 2024 року біля входу в церкву та використовуйте лише їх для сплати внесків, щоб уникнути непорозумінь наприкінці року.

“SONGS of Ukrainian Ephiphany” Concert will take place at Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center in West Hartford on Friday evening, January 19, at 7 PM. The Yevshan Ukrainian Vocal Ensemble will perform the concert. There is no charge for admission, though goodwill donations of $20 are encouraged.

MANY THANKS go to Peter Zelenuik and his helpers Lou Frac, Carol Giantonio, and Paul and Donna Frac for cleaning snow around the church the past Sunday. May God bless Peter with many healthy years!

UOL NEWS: As you clean your home for Christmas and find stuff you no longer need, please donate to Tag Sale Shelves. Thank you in advance! God bless you all!

COFFEE and…: Thank you for your continuous support!

UOL NEWS: Now that the football season is over and many are planning for Super Bowl Sunday, the UOL is making plans, too. We are preparing for our Annual Souper Bowl Sunday fundraiser for St. Andrew’s Society, which will take place on February 11 immediately after Liturgy. Remember, St. Andrew’s Society supports soup kitchens in Ukraine. Now more than ever, the people in Ukraine need our help. Come and enjoy mouth-watering soups prepared by your fellow parishioners. Last year, over $12,000 was donated by UOL chapters. Help us make this year even better! 

WAR IN UKRAINE: A unique “Ornaments for Heroes” project is coming to an end. Our Nativity tree will be moved out soon. So, act quickly! You can buy yellow-blue ornaments for $20, 50, and 100 and place them on the tree in the church. Ornaments will be located on the first pew, right before our tree. All proceeds will go to buy supplies for our heroes in Ukraine.

ВІЙНА В УКРАЇНІ: B нашій парафії стартував особливий проект «Прикраси для героїв». Ви можете купити ялинкову прикрасу за 20, 50 або 100 доларів, і повісити на ялинку. Ці прикраси знаходяться на лавці перед ялинкою. Усі виручені кошти підуть для наших героїв на фронті в Україні.

CHILDREN of our parish will be going out to carol for our shut-ins today, after school classes. Please inform Fr. Andrii if your child will be participating. Pizza and other refreshments will be served after the trip. Let’s spread the joy of the Nativity of our Lord!

ДІТИ нашої парафії будуть їхати колядувати після шкільних занять сьогодні. Будь ласка, повідомте о. Андрія, якщо ваша дитина братиме участь. Піца буде запропонована після поїздки. Поширюймо радість свята Різдва Господнього!

PLEASE CONSIDER that the $520 yearly dues do NOT include the amount per member that we send to support our Metropolia, which is $100. As a result, we have to take $100 from the $520 amount, leaving us only $420 per member to pay for church expenses for the entire year. We would greatly appreciate you including this amount for Metropolia dues as extra to your regular contributions. $620 would be the amount for both Church and Diocese dues.

БУДЬ ЛАСКА врахуйте, що щорічні внески в розмірі 520 доларів НЕ включають 100 дол., якi ми відправляємо на підтримку Митрополії за кожного члена парафії. В результаті, ми повинні взяти 100 доларів з 520 доларів, залишивши нам лише 420 доларів щоб оплатити парафіяльні витрати за весь рік. Ми будемо дуже вдячні, якщо ви додасьте цю суму (100 дол.) до ваших регулярних внесків. Тоді 620 доларів буде добра сума, як для парафіяльних, так і єпархіальних внесків.

2024 EVENT CALENDAR: Any individual or church group with events scheduled during 2024 should inform President Dr. Paul Szwez as soon as possible to avoid confusion.



Church School classes will be held today.

TODAY AT NOON – Children, teens, and young adults who wish to carol for parish shut-ins should gather in the church hall AFTER CHURCH SCHOOL.

May God grant Olivia, Natalie, Arina, Emma, Genevieve, and Anthony MANY BLESSED YEARS! MNOHAYA LITA!
