Ninety years ago, three Sisters of St. Basil arrived in Philadelphia in response to the Church’s Call to serve the Ukrainian immigrants. Not knowing a word of English, these young Sisters (the oldest was 30-years-old) courageously and joyfully entered the New World to tackle the overwhelming needs of the Ukrainian immigrants. Many immigrant children were orphaned due to the frequent coal mining accidents in Western Pennsylvania. Others had no work because most were uneducated and spoke no English.

To celebrate the work of the Sisters a Book of Memories will be published recalling people’s experiences and memories of the Sisters – those living or dead. It was previously announced that the deadline was May 1st, however, due to the many requests to extend the deadline date, the deadline has been extended to July 1, 2019. There will be a small monetary prize (1st prize a $100.00 U. S. Bond; 2nd and 3rd prize a $50.00 U.S. Bond) for the top three stories, however, all stories will be published.

    " Коли ми навчимося бути разом, єдиною (Українською, а не католицькою авт.ком.) Церквою, перемагати те, що нас роз’єднує" - ТОДІ МИ СТАНЕМОГ ДІЙСНО НЕЗАЛЕЖНОЮ УКРАЇНОЮ. Браво Владико!!!

    Дай Боже! Греків довго обманювали проросійською пропагандою, й вони останні роки погано ставились до українців через брехню кремля... Може, тепер протверезіють?

    От тут то (я готовий спокійно вислухати всіх) НАМ ПОТРІБНО ПОВЧИТИСЯ в рф? ХТО, ДЕ І ЯК ЗАХИЩАЄ УКРАЇНУ ЇЇ ПЦУ !? Може шевчук зі своїми ієрархами та з папою в римі? Чи МЗС, зі своєю незліченною
