Sunday Readings

Sixth Sunday after Pentecost

Feast of the Holy and Glorious Prophet Elijah 

July 20, 2014






Glory to Jesus Christ!          Glory forever!




Gospel: Matthew 9:1-8

At that time Jesus getting into a boat crossed over and came to his own city. And behold, they brought to him a paralytic, lying on his bed; and when Jesus saw their faith he said to the paralytic, “Take heart, my son; your sins are forgiven.” And behold, some of the scribes said to themselves, “This man is blaspheming.” But Jesus, knowing * their thoughts, said, “Why do you think evil in your hearts? For which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise and walk? But that you may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins”--he then said to the paralytic--”Rise, take up your bed and go home.” And he rose and went home. When the crowds saw it, they were afraid, and they glorified God, who had given such authority to men.

Parish Mission Statement

The mission of Immaculate Conception Ukrainian Byzantine Catholic Parish is to promote the establishment of God’s Kingdom on earth according to the tradition of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church by:

  • Fostering a meaningful liturgical and personal prayer life
  • Vigorously proclaiming the Gospel and introducing Jesus Christ and His Gospel to all whose lives we touch
  • Promoting vocations to the priesthood and religious life

We hold the ministry of Saints Cyril and Methodius as our model of evangelism.  We cherish our tradition and way of worshipping God as among the most beautiful in all Christendom and will strive to plant it firmly on American soil as our gift to the people of Palatine and vicinity.

 We fervently commit ourselves and this sacred mission to Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker, patron of our holy eparchy and to the Most Holy Mother of God, Teacher and Mother of all peoples.
