Fire Damage at Holy Archangel Michael UOC in Woonsocket, RI
DEARLY BELOVED CLERGY AND FAITHFUL…GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST!
We write with a deep sense of urgency requesting you to pray for Fr. Anthony Perkins, his family and all the parishioners of Holy Archangel Michael Ukrainian Orthodox parish in Woonsocket, RI. At approximately 1:00 a.m. this day, the parish feast day, the beautiful parish church caught fire and burned through and throughout the entire roof and the altar area. Fr. Antony texted us as he watched the fire burn. The rectory is undamaged, but that the fire in church was still raging. Finally a few hours later the firemen were able to extinguish the fire and Father watched as the firemen carried the tabernacle out of the Church. We stated to him then that one miracle often opens out eyes to many more!
