Hudlovo parish

 

Every village, and every parish in every town, sponsors procession of the Cross during Great Lent. Here are splendid photos from Hudlovo parish. Procession of the Cross, Hudlovo village. The larger-than-life cross is carried by changing groups of people while everyone sings mournful hymns and recites prayers of the Passion and Suffering of Christ. Can we get Americans to do something like this for over an hour?

Blessing of the Cornerstone

 Blessing of cornerstone of a parish house (residence, library, classrooms) for a new parish in the midst of housing estate in Uzhorod. Outdoor Liturgies and processions are one way to do outreach to the population to inspire them to return to, or investigate for the first time, the Ruthenian Greek Catholic Church.
