Ukrainian Community to Commemorate 30th Anniversary of Chornobyl Nuclear Accident in Ukraine. A Program of Prayer, Song, Reflection and Hope Will Also Pray for Peace in Ukraine

On Sunday, Sunday April 17, 2016 at 3:00 pm in the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, 830 North Franklin Street, Ukrainian-Americans from the greater Delaware Valley will offer their prayers for Peace in Ukraine and remember the victims of the worst nuclear accident in world history: the nuclear reactor meltdown at Chornobyl, Ukraine.

The Commemorative Concert and Prayer Service will include prayers, songs, reflections and hope for peace.

Prayers will be offered by Archbishop Stefan Soroka of the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia and Metropolitan of the Ukrainian Catholic Church in the United States; Archbishop Antony, Metropolitan of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the United States; and Pastor Sergio Savchuk, from the Ukrainian Baptist Church.

Musical selections as part of the Chornobyl Commemorative Concert will be provided by: the Ukrainian Baptist Choir of the Grace Ukrainian Baptist Church; students from the Ukrainian Heritage School on reflections of Chornobyl and the war in eastern Ukraine; solo performance on the 34 string instrument the "Bandura", and the Ukrainian Heritage School Children's choir.

The event will conclude on the grounds of the Cathedral by the Bell Tower, where, to the pealing of church bells, prayers will be offered for an end to the ongoing war in eastern Ukraine and a flock of white doves, symbols of peace, will be released.

On April 26, 1986, a catastrophic accident occurred at the Chornobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukrainian city of Pripyat. An explosion and fire released large quantities of radioactive particles into the atmosphere, which spread over much of the western USSR and Europe.

The Chornobyl disaster was the worst nuclear power plant accident in history in terms of cost and casualties. The battle to contain the contamination and avert a greater catastrophe ultimately involved over 500,000 workers and cost an estimated 18 billion rubles.

During the accident itself, 31 people died, and long-term effects such as cancers are still being investigated. The city of Pripyat, which had a population of 49,360 at the time of the accident, was left a virtual ghost town when it was evacuated on the afternoon of April 27, 1986, the day after the Chornobyl disaster. Since that time, international studies have shown that millions of people have been afflicted with the medical effects of radiation exposure, including cancers, birth defects and premature death.

Today, the people of Ukraine, besides suffering from the effects of Chornobyl, also are the victims of an ongoing war in eastern Ukraine, fueled by the Russian invasion of Ukrainian territory. Over 10,000 people have lost their lives, including 2,500 civilians, as well as thousands who were wounded in battle. Hundreds of thousands of civilians have relocated to other areas of Ukraine because of the hostilities in the eastern part of their country.

This event is being coordinated by the Ukrainian Community Committee of Philadelphia which is comprised by over 24 local organizations.

SISTERS SEEK VOLUNTEERS FOR UKRAINE IN 2016:

After last year’s successful English catechetical camp in Skole, Ukraine, the Sisters of St. Basil the Great have been invited to organize similar week-long camps in four different areas of Ukraine: Ivana-Frankivsk, Zutomyr (near Kyiv), Mukachev and Lviv. Sister Ann Laszok, OSBM and Sister Joann Sosler, OSBM, and their accompanying volunteers will collaborate with the Basilian
Sisters and seminarians in Ukraine to hold these English language catechetical camps.

In order to hold these camps for the children (ages 10 to 16), the Sisters are seeking volunteers to teach English (i.e. basic grammar, reading, writing and/ or pronunciation, etc). Room & Board will be supplied for the volunteers but they are asked to pay for their own airfare. Volunteers may come for one, two, or three weeks. Depending on the number of volunteers participating and camps held, the Sisters will also visit orphanages and psychiatric institutions.

This year’s Basilian Volunteer Program is tentatively scheduled from May 27 to June 27, 2016, and will be limited to humanitarian efforts in Western Ukraine.

The Basilian Sisters invite the faithful to join them as they bring their ministry of evangelization, support and comfort to the poor and needy of Ukraine. If you can’t join us this year please pray for a safe and successful mission.

For an application and additional information
concerning the Come and Serve with the Sisters in Ukraine Program, please contact:

CANNED FOOD DRIVE to help the DEFENDERS of UKRAINE


The Ukrainian League is assisting with the initiative to collect non-perishable foods (e.g. canned soup, chili, canned tuna, canned beans, canned veggies, canned fruits, canned meats, pasta, rice, cereal, buckwheat, etc.). Any type of canned, non-fragile item that can withstand shipping and transportation by sea will do.

The collection bin is located in the bar downstairs, at the entrance.

This aid will be delivered to the volunteers in Kyiv, who are working to provide for soldiers in 92nd, 80th, and 79th battalion brigades, as well as The Right Sector (Pravyi Sektor).

Shipping will be done via Ukraine Express at a discounted rate.

Please do not hesitate to contact the League with any questions.


ALSO:
In addition to canned food, other items needed are:
550 Military Paracord Rope (for survival bracelets)

Handwarmers

Warm Camo clothing

While these items are optional - the primary focus is the food drive - they are also important and necessary in the field. If you were inclined to purchase paracord rope, following are some of the links to give an idea of what is needed:

1000 feet rope (will make 60-75 survival bracelets)

300 feet rope (will make 18-21 bracelets)

100 feet rope (will make 6-7 bracelets)
