Sunday Readings

Seventh Sunday after Pentecost 

July 27, 2014






Glory to Jesus Christ!          Glory forever!




Gospel: Matthew 9:27-35

At that time as Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, crying loudly, ‘Have mercy on us, Son of David!’ When he entered the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them, ‘Do you believe that I am able to do this?’ They said to him, ‘Yes, Lord.’ Then he touched their eyes and said, ‘According to your faith let it be done to you.’ And their eyes were opened. Then Jesus sternly ordered them, ‘See that no one knows of this.’ But they went away and spread the news about him throughout that district. After they had gone away, a demoniac who was mute was brought to him. And when the demon had been cast out, the one who had been mute spoke; and the crowds were amazed and said, ‘Never has anything like this been seen in Israel.’ But the Pharisees said, ‘By the ruler of the demons he casts out the demons.’ Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every sickness.

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.
