St. Michael Ukrainian Catholic Parish has elaborate things planned for the Feb. 24 visit to Shenandoah by the replica of the Shroud of Turin, which is thought by many to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ. At a recent meeting of the Greater Shenandoah Area Chamber of Commerce at Shenandoah Manor/Shenandoah Senior Living Community, East Washington Street, Monsignor Myron Grabowsky, St. Michael pastor, said there will be a parade including Shenandoah Mayor Andrew Szczyglak, the Knights of Columbus and the Shenandoah Fire and police departments escorting the Shroud to the church, where it will be available for viewing until March 9. He also said an observance is being planned for the National Day of Prayer on May 2 at Shenandoah Manor. St. Michael parish is the first Ukrainian Catholic parish in America. The original church still stands along West Centre Street.
I like these sort of things. They demonstrate something about our faith throughout the towns and villages of the world.
