Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia : " The Way" English version: http://www.ukrarcheparchy.us/way/THEWAY170205ENG.pdf
Just as Jesus said in the Beatitudes, blessed are the poor and the hungry. Our mission is not just to love one another, but to make sure we spread the love of the Gospels everywhere.
We use both the Old Testament and the Gospels as the foundation for our Ukrainian Catholic faith and the inspiration for our daily lives. We put those teachings into practice at home and at work.
All the faithful are urged to attend the Lenten services such as Lenten Vespers, the Presanctified Liturgy and the Commemoration of the Deceased (Sorokousty).
Such good deeds are almsgiving, visitation of the sick, Bible reading and praying for vocations to the priesthood and religious life are most earnestly recommended to all the Faithful.
