Help Church in Ukraine
In recent weeks, I have been in contact with a Ukrainian Orthodox parish located in Western Ukraine. The parish is in the city of Khmelnytskyi (although I don’t think it is officially pronounced this way, we are pronouncing it “mel-nit-ski” to make it easier for English speakers). After I contacted this parish through a family I met from the Ukraine, I discovered this city also happens to be a Sister City to Modesto!
I prayed to the Holy Spirit to perform an act of mercy and offered Fr. Yaroslav our parish’s help. I told him we want to support his parish’s efforts to assist the refugee families they are serving in whatever way we can. First thing we can do, of course, is to pray for the parish, which I still need to see if it is named after a Saint.
Donate for Help Church in Ukraine here:
In this Month of May, the month of the Blessed Mother, let us pray she, who is the Queen of Peace, will continue to beg her Divine Son to restore peace immediately to Ukraine and end the terrible suffering of the Ukrainian people. We pray all people know Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Does God Exist?

If we can know truth, what does reality tell us about God? Come find out how we can know that God exists (as well as which God exists) without simply assuming our faith.
