A special thanks to the Ukrainian Catholic National Shrine of the Holy Family and to Bishop Bura, Fr. Hitchens, and Fr. Kharuk for hosting our year end gala. A moving encounter with the prayer of the Eastern churches, a fine presentation by Fr. Mark Morozowich on Eastern Spirituality and Liturgy, and a wonderful reception of Ukrainian and other delights by our caterer Benjamin Judd.
This was a truly Ecumenical evening, with Roman Catholics (including a host of Paulists!), Byzantine Catholics, Greek Orthodox, Episcopalian/Anglican, Presbyterian, Baptist, and Lutheran participants. We also welcomed Muslim and interfaith guests.
Thanks to all who attended and to those who donated toward the event, and a special thanks to Jack Figel and Christy Hammet for organizing it! For more information: Friend’s Event 2015
