GLORY BE TO JESUS CHRIST!
On February 17th-18th 2004 there will be great
solemnities in honour of Bl. Emilian KOWCH, hieromartyr.
This year we celebrate two his anniversaries:
120 years from his nativity and 60 years from his
martyrdom in Majdanek concentration camp in Lublin, Poland.
The city council named a traffic circle in honour
of Bl. Emilian. This traffic circle will be solemnly opened on February 18th at 10.30 local
time (GMT + 1) with participation of Ukrainian
Greek-Catholic Bishops - members of the Permanent Synod.

PS. Local Latin pastor asked someone from our clergy to have sermons about Bl. Emilian on Sunday February 15th in order to inform people who Bl. Emilian was. So I'll preach about our
Hieromartyr at SEVEN Latin Masses. Nice experience for a first sermon at all!
Prayers for success of my preaching welcomed!
