Archeparchy of Philadelphia dispensation

The Ukrainian Greek Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia has dispensed the faithful from attending Sunday Divine Liturgy until further notice due to the coronavirus:

Montgomery County (where my parish is located) has the majority of coronavirus cases at this time.

Please pray to the Most Holy Ever-Virgin Mother of God to extend Her Holy Veil over our Archeparchy and protect us from the just wrath of God.

Open to us the doors of mercy, O blessed Mother of God, that we who place our trust in you may not perish but that we may be delivered from misfortune, for you are the salvation of all Christians.

Theotokion, Tone 6
