Truly Blessed Day in Palos Park, IL!
By Rev. Fr. Vasyl Sendeha
On Sunday March 17, long awaited day has come to Sts. Peter and Paul Parish family in Palos Park, IL. It was truly a great and blessed day! The parish family has celebrated not one or two, but four happy occasions. First joyful occasion was a visit of the Ruling Hierarch of the Western Eparchy and President of Consistory of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA - His Grace Bishop Daniel. However, this time his visit was extraordinary. He has come to provide spiritual guidance to his South Side Chicago flock of the faithful, to ordain three altar servers to Sun-Deaconate and bestow his special blessing upon three young boys, who were just starting their service at the altar. His Grace has come accompanied by the newly ordained Deacon Vasyl Pasakas, who has traveled with the Bishop to celebrate his first Divine Liturgy as a Deacon.
