    22nd Sunday After Pentecost

    In this Sunday’s Gospel (Luke8:41-56), we learn about the woman who for 12 years had a bleeding problem that doctors were unable to cure.  Jesus is on his way to the house of Jairus a ruler of the Synagogue, to heal his sick daughter.  Crowds were pressing Jesus from all sides.  The woman believe that by just touching the cloak of Christ, she would be healed and as Jesus made his way past her, she touched the hem of his cloak and was immediately healed. Jesus immediately responds to the woman. People were pushing and pressing into Him from all over, yet He stops, turns, and asks, “Who touched my clothes?” The disciples were incredulous, but Jesus knew that healing power had gone out of Him. We can’t “steal” a miracle from God. After the woman comes forward and explains herself, Jesus clears up any misconceptions about her healing, saying, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering” God is moved to action by our faith, even when He’s in the middle of doing something else

    Our Divine Liturgy

    There are so many wonderful things that happen during the Divine Liturgy. If you went to Liturgy every day of your life, you would still be discovering its wonders at the end of your life. There is nothing like the Liturgy.The Eucharist is another wonder we experience on Liturgy. We believe that during the Liturgy, a simple piece of bread and a cup of wine are transformed into the Body and Blood of Jesus. That is amazing! (play the audio below for more)

    Annual Special Assessment

    As you might know, the financial situation at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish has for some time now been challenging. Costs for heating oil last winter, enhanced lighting in the parking lot etc. have taken their toll on available cash while at the same time, income from collections has just about kept pace with outflows due to operating expenses. Because of this, it was determined that re-implementing the annual assessment has become necessary.

    This assessment, which is voluntary in nature, will be collected during the month of October 2019. We are requesting $250 per family however, we will most gratefully accept contributions in amounts that donors, after prayerful consideration, are comfortable giving. To contribute: Please use one of the envelopes marked “SPECIAL OFFERING” found within your packet. Please write “Assessment” on the envelope as well as the amount of your gift, your name and address then, place it in the collection basket, drop it off at the rectory or, mail it in. We thank you in advance for your participation and invite you to contact Father Yuriy or Father Vasyl with any questions or concerns that you may have.
