Welcome Fr. Andrii and 2020 !
We warmly welcome Rev. Andrii Dumnyh and his beautiful family to our parish. Let us pray for all of them, and for Fr. Andrii as he begins a new chapter in his life helping our church family as our spiritual shepherd.
Along with Rev. Andrii and his family we ask you to pray for all those in ministerial service in St. Michael’s and our sister parish of St. Nicholas.
We ask you to pray especially for our Deacon Larry Worlinsky in his dual role as both deacon and Administrator.
Remember that our gift to our Lord is to use the gifts He bestows on us for his honor and glory. Please pray for our “workers”: our cantors, church workers, and all who offer their time, talent, treasure as brothers and sisters in Christ in our churches. Their reliable and quiet dedication is to our church families, and ultimately in building the Kingdom of God.
We invite you if you have a particular skill, ability, or talent to pray about it and how you might use your special gifts in our parishes. If you have an idea or a desire, that may be the voice of God in your heart calling you to do what you can as well. Our service to others is our service to God.
Regarding the passing into eternal life of our dear pastor and friend, Father Gary, on December 6th, 2019:
You may find healing and consolation in visiting the links below during this bereavement period of 30 days of mourning together.
Most especially, please, we ask you remember in your prayers Father Gary and as he would request, prayers for his mom, his family, friends, and also for our deeply grieving parish families of both churches he served: St. Michael, Pittston and St. Nicholas, Swoyersville, during this difficult time.
May God Grant Father Gary, Blessed Repose and Eternal Memory.
