As the cruel and unprovoked invasion of and war in Ukraine by Vladimir Putin tragically continues, we, as Christians living in the USA, will continue to pray and help in whatever way we can:

1. Pray - here is a link to 
three Prayers for Peace.

2. Help - on the first page of our website - - you will find information for ways you can help either financially or with items donated. The information will be periodically updated.

May the Good Lord guard and protect those who are being bombed and tortured, wounded and displaced, and grant eternal rest with His saints to all the lives already lost in this senseless war.
People who have the same goal and who strive towards the one thing needful have oneness of soul, and they never feel the distance of separation. And no matter how great that distance is, it can never be the cause of hindrance to that spiritual closeness uniting these people in oneness of soul.
- Saint John Maximovich
