Special Announcement

Safe Environment
St. Sophia parish unites its prayers and actions to those of Bishop Benedict in denouncing the scandalous abuse of authority, of chastity, and of people that has come to light in recent weeks.

If you have been the victim of any past or present abuse by a member of the clergy of whatever rank, please report this to the civil authorities and notify the Eparchial Office for Safe Environment.

Якщо Ви стали жертвою будь-якого сексуального надужиття, в минулому або теперішньому, заподіяного членом духовенства будь-якого рангу, прошу це повідомити державним органам влади, а також поінформувати Єпархіальний Відділ Безпечного Довкілля.

We will walk the sorrowful journey beside all who need it as we pray and fast, especially during the prescribed times of abstinence: Wednesdays and Fridays, the four fast periods of our liturgical year, and other prescribed days of abstinence.

To all who are suffering, we offer our sacrifices, our tears, our solidarity, and our sincere sorrow. We are sorry for whatever corruption, scandal, or abuse you have endured and we are committed to the process of reparation, rehabilitation, and reconciliation of this deep and systemic evil present among us.
