August 12, 2018: Sloatsburg

Today Andy and I spent the day at Sloatsburg, NY. Every year the area holds a pilgrimage for the Catholic community. Although it’s centered on Ukrainian Catholics, anyone from a Catholic background can attend. Cardinal Timothy Dolan from NYC was in attendance, which was very nice to see. I always think of him as a very pleasant individual.

As we were sitting with the crowd during the liturgy, I was thinking how it’s wonderful to take part in an event where everyone is counted. It also made me feel happy that my fiance invited me whenever we can make it. Along with it being a spiritual experience, the area is very scenic and peaceful. I’m unsure if we’re able to make it next year (not sure if it falls during our wedding), but I look forward to be in the area again in the future.

  1. It truly was an inspiring day. I attended with my two sons, ages 9 and 12. My younger one was bummed that he didn’t get a photo with Patriarch Sviatoslav from Kyiv.
