Holy Ghost Orthodox Church In Slickville, Pa

 

Welcome!

Holy Ghost Orthodox Church is a multi-ethnic, English-speaking Orthodox parish in rural Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. We are located approximately halfway between Delmont and Saltsburg, off of State Route 819 (five miles north of US Route 22 East of Murrysville). Under the Omophorion of His Grace, Bishop Daniel, Ruling Hierarch of the Western Eparchy  of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA. Holy Ghost has been serving Our Lord since its founding by Galician Immigrants in 1923.

Although Holy Ghost is a small parish by today's standards, the people of our parish pride themselves on their hospitality and love towards our visitors.
Please plan to stay after Divine Liturgy for our Coffee Hour Social Time.

Please feel free to contact Father Robert Popichak if you have any questions or are interested in learning about the Orthodox Church. Father Bob has served at Holy Ghost since January of 1998.


All Services are in
English. Holy Day Services are announced in the weekly bulletin (see below).

  A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to Alexander Popichak, who revised and modified this web page to be both beautiful and Much More Functional than my rudimentary one.  Thanks Alex, and God Bless you for your work for His Church!

Please continue to pray for the guests and staff of the Eastern Orthodox Foundation!


Please remember in your prayers His Eminence, Metropolitan Paul and His Eminence Mar Gregorios, who were kidnapped in April.  Media coverage continues to be  minimal to non-existant!
 

“Metropolitan Paul Yazigi of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Aleppo (brother of His Beatitude Patriarch John X of the Great City-of-God Antioch and all the East), and Mar Gregorios Yohanna Ibrahim of the Syriac Orthodox Archdiocese of Aleppo, were both abducted this morning, Monday, April 22nd, while they were traveling together on the road between Antioch (Antakya, Turkey) and the north Syrian city of Aleppo.  The driver of the vehicle in which they were traveling was killed in the attack.  Your prayers are requested.”


A very special THANK YOU to Darlene D. for her very kind donation to our church.  May God reward her a thousand-fold for her generosity.  God Bless you!

PLEASE REMEMBER IN YOUR PRAYERS--all those injured at Franklin Regional High School this past Wednesday, their families, their friends, the first responders, and all involved in the tragic knife attack that injured over 20 people.  May God grant them all a quick and full recovery!  Lord have Mercy!!!
