54th Annual Dormition Pilgrimage Schedule Announced

Our annual Dormition Pilgrimage will be held Saturday and Sunday, August 9-10, 2008. Usually attracting some 4,000 pilgrims, this is the largest annual religious gathering of Ukrainian Catholics in the US. This year’s theme is: Christ our hope, Mary, hope of Christians.

On Saturday evening, we will have two special guests. Father Marcel Szabo, Rector of St. Michael the Archangel Cathedral in Passaic will celebrate Divine Liturgy at the grotto at 5 PM, and Bishop William Skurla, Eparch of Passaic, will be the celebrant and homilist at the Saturday evening Moleben Prayer Service to the Mother of God at 8 PM.

On the main day, Sunday, a Pontifical Divine Liturgy, preceded by a procession, will be concelebrated by Archbishop Stefan Soroka and Bishops Paul Chomnycky (homilist), John Bura, and Basil Losten, at 10 AM.

Detailed schedules are available below in English and Ukrainian.

Please join us at the pilgrimage. See you in August!
