St. Mary's Chapel inaugurated Eparchial Holy Door
for Year of Mercy
 
 
 
On February 7th, Bishop Paul Chomnycky, Eparch of Stamford, inaugurated the door, opening to the Chapel of St. Mary's Villa in Sloatsburg, NY, as an Eparchial Holy Door for the Year of Mercy, encouraging the faithful to visit the Chapel during the year, to pray and participate in the Holy Mysteries of Confession and the Holy Eucharist.
Over 100 faithful were present to participate in a blessing of the Holy Door and then pray in the Chapel. Msgr. John Terlecky, Chaplain; Very Rev. Kiril Angelov, Chancellor; and Very Rev. Roman Malyarchuk, Rector of St. Basil's Seminary, joined Bishop Paul in the blessing service, which concluded with the beautiful ritual of Forgiveness for Forgiveness Sunday. Following the service, the Sisters Servants invited all of the faithful for refreshments in their dining room. 
Many of the participants expressed their gratitude for this very special spiritual experience, and left with the words, "We will be back!"

The Sisters Servants pray that our chapel may be, as Pope Francis says, " a Holy Door that becomes a Holy Door of Mercy through which anyone who enters will experience the love of God, Who consoles, pardons, and instills hope." During the Jubilee Year, the Sisters Servants will include in the diocesan newspapers a series of pictures and articles describing the corporal works of mercy of Blessed Josaphata Hordashevska, foundress.

In celebrating this Jubilee Year of Mercy, we invite the faithful to come and pray with us on a monthly basis throughout the year, and at any time you feel the need to come and pray on your own. Our first day of communal prayer will be held on Sunday March 13th, with a Divine Liturgy celebrated at 10:00am in St. Mary's Chapel by Rev. Archpriest Daniel Troyan, Archeparchy of Philadelphia.
