Remembering the Holodomor

In the midst of a busy Saturday morning (Nov. 24) of food preparation, the women of Holy Transfiguration parish paused to join in prayer with Ukrainians around the world to remember those who died during the Holodomor of 1932-33. At 9 a.m. (EDT) Ukrainians worldwide prayed for the millions who died as a result of the Soviet created artificial famine, effectively Josyf Stalin’s attempt to destroy the Ukrainian people.  Sadly a story which continues to this day with the aggressive policies of Vladimir Putin aimed at the destruction of Ukraine’s sovereignty.
