Parish missions took place between November 18 and 25, 2018 in the Greek-Catholic Parish of Sts. Cyril and Methodius. The missions were held by Fathers of the Mission of St. Vincent de Paul – Fr. Vladyslav Kuchak, CM, and Jerzy Havliuk, CM.
The missions are the time given to the parish for its spiritual revival. One of Missionaries’ core tasks is calling people for conversion and preparation for making a good general confession.
Two seminarians from Kyiv, Petro and Andrii, joined the missions on Saturday, November 24. Thus, they could receive their first experience of the missions. Moreover, on Saturday catecheses were held for children aged from 6 to 12 years and for the youth as well. The youth catechesis’ topic was “Discerning your vocation.” Together with young people, we pondered on what the vocation meant and how one could discern it in one’s own life.
The missions ended on Sunday with the solemn Holy Mass supervised by the missional blessing. To add more, the Mission Cross was blessed which was to stay in the parish as a memento of the missions.
We are grateful to God for all the graces He granted to every one of us during those parish missions.
Seminarian Andrii Patyka
