Welcome Fr. Andrii as Spiritual Leader and Deacon Larry as Administrator

2019-12-25 101 St Michaels PittstonWe warmly welcome Rev. Andrii Dumnyh and his beautiful family to our parish serving in the role of Spiritual Leader.  Let us pray for all of them, and for Fr. Andrii as he begins a new chapter in his life learning and adjusting to everything American.

Deacon Larry Worlinsky is parish Administrator for St. Michael and St. Nicholas Churches.  In his dual role as Deacon and Administrator we ask for your prayers for him.

We ask you to pray for all those in ministerial and service roles in St. Michael’s and our sister parish of St. Nicholas, including our cantors, church secretaries, sextons, catechists (ECF – Eastern Christian Formation teachers), our advisory council members, media managers, and everyone who volunteers.  Every role serves God and we invite all parishioners to find their special niche to do good for our church family.


Remember that our gift to our Lord is to use the gifts He bestows on us for his honor and glory.

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 see a need that exists, that could 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.   Responding to that call can take you in a new direction, one that brings you closer to being the best version of yourself!














Regarding the passing into eternal life of our dear pastor and friend, Father Gary, on December 6th, 2019:

Paschal Liturgy at St Michael, Pittston

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.
