MEMORIAL DAY SERVICES

Monday ST. MARY'S UKRAINIAN CATHOLIC CEMETERY
10 AM

Monday OAKLAND CEMETERY
11 AM

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces. The holiday, which is observed every year on the last Monday of May, originated as Decoration Day after the American Civil War in 1868, when the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union veterans founded in Decatur, Illinois, established it as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. By the 20th century, competing Union and Confederate holiday traditions, celebrated on different days, had merged, and Memorial Day eventually extended to honor all Americans who died while in the military service.

In cemeteries throughout the United States, services will be held for our deceased servicemen. Please remember also our veterans who have died over the last year and remember the sacrifice they and their families made to protect our liberties.

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)
