Religious Class by Fr. Ivan

Two weeks ago the Classes of 2020, 2021, and 2022 met with our pastor, Father Ivan for an informative morning about our beautiful church.  Father Ivan took time to explain the similarities and differences in the Latin Rite Catholic Church and the Ukrainian Catholic Church. The classes learned that we are much more alike than we are different.

Father explained the importance of the icons found around the altar, as well as the beautiful mosaic of our Blessed Mother located behind the altar. He also explained the uniqueness of the painted story of life located on the walls above the pews of the Church. The artist,Jacques Hnizdovsky, did this particular work just for the members of our Assumption Catholic Church, There is no other one like it in the whole world! The morning came to a close with many happy students taking away a better understanding of the church that we attend as a school and parish community every Friday for Divine Liturgy.
