ANDREY SHEPTYTSKY DECLARED 'VENERABLE'


In the afternoon of 16 July 2015, Pope Francis received in a private audience the Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, Cardinal Angelo Amato. During the audience, the Holy Father approved decrees recognizing the heroic virtues of several Servants of God. The first among these was Andrey Roman Alexander Maria Sheptytsky (1865–1944), Metropolitan-Archbishop of Lviv-Halych. This formal declaration represents one of the penultimate stages in the beatification process. Once a miracle attributed to the intercession of Sheptytsky is formally recognized, Kyr Andrey will be declared a Blessed of the Universal Church. The cause for his beatification had been introduced in 1958. With this declaration, the "Servant of God" becomes "Venerable" Andrey.


Prayer for Beatification of Servant of God Metropolitan Andrew Sheptytsky
O My God, I adore Your infinite Majesty with all the powers of my soul. 
I thank You for the graces and gifts which You did bestow upon Your faithful Servant Metropolitan Andrew Sheptytsky.
I ask You to glorify him also on earth with evident proofs and miracles. 
For this end I beseech You to give me the favor, which I humbly ask from Your Fatherly mercy.
O Lord Jesus Christ, through the intercession of Your Mother grant that Your faithful Servant Metropolitan Sheptytsky be proclaimed a saint for the greater glory of God, for the salvation of souls and the good of our Catholic Church. 
Amen.

HOT OFF THE PRESS!!

Announcing a New Edition of the Divine Office (Horologion) in English

Divine-Office-Flyer-PDF.pdfIn 2002 the Stamford Eparchy printed an English translation of the original 1990 Ukrainian Molytvoslov (Horologion) of the monks of the Order of St. Basil, the Great.  It proved to be extremely popular among English-speaking clergy, religious and faithful, so much so that it was completely sold out within a few years.

Today we are pleased to announce the publication of a new, corrected and updated edition of the 2002 English translation of the Horologion consisting of 1379 printed pages.  Additions include English text under notes for singing the services of the Paschal Triduum (Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday), tropars and kondaks for the contemporary Ukrainian Blessed Martyrs, and propers for the Second Sunday of Great Lent (St. Gregory Palamas).

The elegantly embossed burgundy cover will grace your bookcase and the high-quality, sturdy binding will ensure many years of daily use.

We are indebted to Rev. Maxim Kobasuk, OSBM for the painstaking diligence with which he corrected and updated the text, to Mr. Ihor Stasiuk for providing the musical notation to the English text, and to Mr. Joseph Roll and others for their expertise and help.  Please remember them when you take up this beautiful book to pray.

Place your order by contacting the Chancery Office of the Stamford Eparchy by telephone (203-324-7698), fax (203-357-7681) or e-mail (vicechancellor@optonline.net)

CLERGY RETREAT 2015

Traditionally during the First Week of the Great Fast, this year from February 16-19, the clergy of the Stamford Eparchy attend their Annual Clergy Retreat. This year the retreat master was Fr. Bohdan Kulyk, who traveled all the way from Ukraine. Currently Father Kulyk is the pastor of St. Volodymyr Church, an assistant pastor in the Garrison Church of Sts. Peter and Paul and a student chaplain in the three largest universities in Lviv. Father Bohdan organized his retreat talks around three main questions: what should we as priests expect of ourselves, what does God expect of us and what do our faithful expect of us. In addition, he updated the clergy with the latest information regarding the situation in Ukraine, especially as it pertains to his role as a pastor and a chaplain.
