  1. Dear Myroslaw,

    In this dark time for the Ukraine, its citizens and all those who through birth or otherwise have a connection to the country, we want you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. We wish you, Maria, and your family, and your parishioners, much strength.

  2. Dear Myroslaw,
    The international Resurrectionist Community is praying for peace in the Ukraine. We have five men in the Ukraine – three in Lwow and two in Sambor. I visited there three years ago, and had hopes of visiting again this year. It is a beautiful country! I am sure it is stressful for you and all your parishioners who have loved ones in danger. God bless you and your family, your ministry, and your faithful Congregation!
    Very Rev. Paul S. Voisin, C.R. Superior General Congregation of the Resurrection Rome, Italy

  3. Myroslaw. I am appalled by the attack on Ukraine. I am keeping you and your family here and in Ukraine as well as all Ukrainians in my prayers.
