We just received from our dear friends and partners in Jamestown, in the State of Rhode Island, a very valuable gift – solar lanterns – “svitylnyky”. We received these thanks to the coordination and intercession of the Ukrainian Catholic University. In particular I want to thank the University’s Vice-Rector Myroslav Marynovych who enabled us to receive these gifts for which we are very grateful, because we are receiving these lanterns in time for our very great holiday of Chanukah – the Festival of Lights. May the light of these lanterns help us all – the power of Light will always overcome the power of Darkness. And to all our sponsors – our benefactors – we extend our sincere greetings for the Christmas holidays and for the New Year. Sincerely we thank you. We wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
