The Feast of the Holy Trinity is always a special holy day for the community of Sisters of the Order of Saint Basil the Great in Ukraine, since it is the Province’s Feast day. On that day each Sister offers prayers of gratitude to our Lord for the gift of life, the gift of her vocation to consecrated life and all the gifts and blessings which the Lord so generously sends to each individual Sister. It is a distinct day when Sisters’ monastic jubilees are traditionally marked and celebrated.
This year the following Sisters of our Province celebrated their 25th anniversary of monastic life:
Sister Romana Hutnyk, OSBM
Sister Lucia Murashko, OSBM
Sister Yoakyma Dvernytska, OSBM
Sister Dia Zahurska, OSBM
Sister Athanasius Pavliuk, OSBM
Sister Mariia Tsapulych, OSBM
Sister Markella Venher, OSBM.
For this special occasion, a Hierarchal Divine Liturgy was celebrated in the monastery chapel of the Province by Most Reverend Bohdan Manyshyn, Auxiliary Bishop of the Stryj Epachy. His Grace imparted his blessing upon the jubilarians and their guests.
Lord, receive the gratitude of each Sister for the gift of life and the call to serve You and Your People in the community of the Sisters of the Order of Saint Basil the Great, Most Holy Trinity Province. Gift each one of us with the needed graces, so that we may best fulfill Your Will.
