Seton Hill University Holds Prayer Service for Ukraine

Seton Hill University welcomed Reverend Oleh Seremchuk of the Byzantine Catholic Archeparchy of Pittsburgh to celebrate a prayer service for Ukraine April 4 in Saint Joseph Chapel.

Father Seremchuk is the Pastor of St. Nicholas Byzantine Catholic Church in Perryopolis and Administrator of St. John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Church in Scottdale. He is a native of Ukraine and his family still lives in the country. During the crisis, he has remained in regular contact with his family providing them with updates that he has learned through media reports and gathering information about their situation.

He told those gathered that praying for Ukraine and its people is vitally important.

“Lack of prayer is a lack of hope,” he said. “Prayer doesnʼt require our funds or our significant efforts. It requires only faith, time and our desire to stand together.”
