At St Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church Great Meadows NJ, it's our mission to help you explore your relationship with God and improve those meaningful relationships in your family life. Join us each Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning and experience the warmth of faith and the strength of our community.
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.
A PRAYER OF CONFIDENCE IN GOD
Beloved Jesus, grant that I may rest in Your above all things,
Above all creatures, above all Your angels, above all praise,
Above all rejoicing and exultation, above all glory and honor,
Above all heavenly hosts; for Your alone are Most High,
You alone are the Almighty and Good above all things.
May You come to me and deliver me, and release me from
My chains, and grant me freedom, because without You my
Joy is not complete, without You my table is empty.
God saves me, Jesus enlightens me, the Holy Spirit is my
Life, thus I fear nothing.
