The third day of UOL convention in Warwick, RI prayerfully began with the liturgical celebration of the life and legacy of Holy Equal-to-the-Apostles Great King Volodymyr. With the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Daniel, the Divine Liturgy for the feast of the day was celebrated by Very Rev. Fr. Myron Oryhon, Very Rev. Fr. John Haluszczak, Rev. Fr. Vasyl Pasakas, Rev. Fr. Phulip Harendza, Protodeacon Ihor Mahlay and Deacon John Charest. In conclusion of the service, Vladyka Daniel offered a short reflection on the spiritual legacy of St. Volodymyr the Great and the call upon those in attendance to emulate the spiritual virtues of Holy and Great King of Rus-Ukraine in a day of modern challenges and uncertainties. The Archbishop called upon the delegates of the Convention to make St. Volodymyr’s legacy alive by living the Faith of ancient Forefathers and offering themselves in the service to others through the acts of charity and kindness. In particular, Vladyka Daniel called upon the participants of the Divine Liturgy to care for the environment, protecting every aspect of natural resources.
