Fr. Vasyl Pasakas, the Assistant Dean of Men, and Rev. Fr. Vasyl Shak, Assistant Professor of Church History, led us in the Moleben prayers. &nbsp;This was a wonderful reminder that without God we can do nothing (St. John 15:5) and that it is God's desire to bless us and fill our needs (St. Matthew 7:7-9) and helped us better appreciate the gift the Lord has sent us in the form of committed seminarians who are willing to sacrifice themselves to serve God and neighbor.</p></div> St. Sophia Seminary http://stsuots.org/news_170522_1.html Seminary Book Club Meets http://stsuots.org/news_170519_1.html Fri, 19 May 2017 00:00:00 -0400 <div><img border="0" hspace="5" vspace="0" align="left" src="http://stsuots.org/display_image.php?ext=JPG&relativeimage=images/events/2017/05-19-2017-Book-Clubb/85AE0A41-83D4-43BB-AFE9-CC9ACED6BC27.JPG&archive=0&final_h=67&final_w=90&percent=100"><p style="text-align: justify;">The first St. Sophia Seminary Library Book Club meeting took place this past Thursday, May 18<sup>th</sup>.
