New Blue Vestments Decorate the NBV Parish

On Sunday, July 3rd, 2016, the parishioners of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary parish celebrated their first Divine Liturgy as a parish community using the newly purchased and blessed blue vestments. The color blue had been chosen because blue is traditionally designated for the Theotokos, the patron of the parish,  and that a set of blue vestments were lacking in their parish for a number of years.  

The purchase of these vestments was made possible with generous donations made by the parishioners in memory of Anna Vakulchik. They were custom made in Ukraine and brought back and blessed in church on April 15th, 2016.

PRAYER FOR UKRAINE:

Let us Pray to the Lord - Lord, Have Mercy!   Господу помолимось - Господи, помилуй!

Almighty Father, You said that when two or three are gathered in your name – you would be among them. Remembering Your words and having received the land of Ukraine for our heritage; We ask you today to prove us mindful of this great blessing. Bless our ancestral homeland Ukraine and these United States with honorable works, sound learning, and good manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance. Defend liberty which is an expression of your Divine Will. During this time of difficulty throughout our ancestral homeland Ukraine fill our hearts with gratitude, and grant the people of Ukraine, and all of us the grace to continue to trust in You and Your mercy as we did in previous days of trouble. We ask this for we know that you are a gracious and loving God in whom we are blessed through the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, always now and ever and to the ages of ages. AMEN.
