Day for Vocations

Pentecost Sunday has been designated as a Day for Vocations for all parishes and institutions in the Archeparchy of Philadelphia.  Just as the Holy Spirit descended upon the Blessed Virgin Mary and the twelve Apostles and granted them the grace to spread the joyful news of the Gospel of Christ to the world, we ask that the Holy Spirit come upon us and grant our young men and women the grace to respond to His call to be faithful stewards of His Holy Church.  Please be sure to pray for an increase of vocations to the priesthood, diaconate, and religious life on this day.

 If there is someone in your family, or you have a friend (or even yourself!), whom you think God might be calling to a challenging, but extremely rewarding and fulfilling, life as a Ukrainian Catholic priest, deacon, or religious monk or nun, be sure to pray for them.  Have your priest talk with them and pray with them over their call.  For more information, be sure to check out our new vocations website at

The Grace of God's Mercy

In January of 2016, Our Archbishop, the Most Rev. Stefan Soroka, issued a Pastoral Letter for the "Year of Mercy."  In this Pastoral Letter, he designates several Parishes to make special opportunities for the faithful to receive the grace of God's mercy.  Ss. Cyril and Methodius Ukrainian Catholic Church is one of these designated Parishes.

His Grace encourages the faithful to make Pilgrimages and visit various Shrines throughout the Archeparchy of Philadelphia, including our Shrine of the Our Lady of Zhyrovytsi. The text of this Pastoral Letter for the Year of Mercy can be found by clicking here.
