Our parishes in Woonsocket and Fall River are getting smaller so participation at services by all is very important to keep our Ukrainian-American heritage alive.  Please encourage others to attend our services to thank God for helping us to put most of the COVID-19 problems behind us.  We are not ready to claim victory, but we are getting close. 
The secret to happiness is prayer so what better way to pray than to get together at weekly services.
Also, for all those months, all bills have been paid thanks to your contributions.  Keep up the good work. We have a lot to be thankful for.  May God Bless you abundantly and keep you safe.

The bishops of the Metropolia of Philadelphia have created a special fund entitled: “War Victims and Humanitarian Crisis in Ukraine”. The fund can be accessed through the website of the Archeparchy of Philadelphia https://ukrarcheparchy.us/donate. Two other avenues of providing aid have been offered by the Ukrainian Congress Committee. They can be accessed at the following websites: https://www.gofundme.com/f/humanitarian-aid-to-victims-of-war-in-ukraine and https://www.mightycause.com/story/M1wzpf. They are safe and reliable and through them we are confident that the financial aid will be directed to where it is needed most. Write a check to the "Ukrainian Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia" and send it to the office at 810 North Franklin Street, Philadelphia PA 19123.  Please write on the check "Humanitarian Aid Fund for Ukraine".       Glory to Ukraine.      Glory to Heros.

    Cupola Project Fundraising...     Work on the exterior of the church with the installation of leaf gutter guards and painting of the wood below the gutters as we wait for the new columns for the main cupola.  We have given a deposit to the contractor to order materials and to get the exterior work started on the roof line.   Again, we are asking for your help in raising $30,000 to pay for the exterior renovation of the church.  It's been over 30 years since the exterior wood of the building has been repaired and painted.  Please be generous like you have in the past for other projects to beautify your church.         Thank you.        Fr. Mykhaylo, Pastor.
