Praying for the Descent of the Holy Spirit to foster our relationship with God and our neighbor— “heart to heart”. To promote and nurture relations within the Archeparchy and Metropolia, with the Archdiocese in Philadelphia, the city’s Ukrainian-Americans and with the local community at large, with our brothers and sisters from other eparchies, countries, rites, and Churches. To engage the youth “heart to heart,” putting young people at the center of the Church’s mission.
Recognizing the rich legacy of our ancestors and handing it on, enhanced, to a new generation. The program of “heart to heart” prayer and community-building events should spiritually inspire participants in an enduring way and be capacity building for the Archeparchy. The considerable efforts and resources of an enthronement should not be expended to produce a short-lasting if impressive “firework.” Each event, gesture, or symbol is guided by the vision —what does not immediately promote it can be postponed. The five priorities and celebration program embodying the vision prepare all participants for Pentecost—the Descent of the Holy Spirit Who renews us and commissions us to go forth and bear the “Good News” to all people of good will.
