Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ!
We are eagerly awaiting the June 4thEnthronement of our Archbishop-Metropolitan Borys. We are expecting his Beatitude Sviatoslav, many Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops, clergy, dignitaries, religious and laity from Europe and North America for this momentous event. We anticipate at least 3,000 or more visitors attending on that day.
As expected, our beautiful Cathedral will be filled to capacity which is 1,800 including the choir loft. Given the circumstances and space availability, it will be difficult to accommodate everyone. Considering these factors, I would like to ask everyone who wishes to come to the Enthronement to please register online ASAP at (coradcor.us), e-mail (email@example.com), or phone (215.627.0143). Tickets for seating in the Cathedral will be distributed in the order that registrations are received. As of today we have over 150 people already registered, and there are over 1,200 seats still available. Once the seating capacity in the cathedral is reached, additional seating will be available outside in the parking lot in front of the cathedral. Tents will be in place along with several large jumbo screens which will live-stream the liturgical event for everyone to see.
Parking for cars in the vicinity of the cathedral will be limited. Franklin Street will be closed to all cars. Those who choose to use their personal cars may have to park and then walk a long and inconvenient distance to the cathedral.
I am, therefore, asking that your parish consider chartering a bus or combine with a neighboring parish to charter a bus to attend this historic event. Even parishes in suburban Philadelphia areas are strongly encouraged to charter buses. Buses will provide a convenient and safe way for all parishioners, especially the elderly to attend and participate in the day’s events.
I ask for your understanding and cooperation as we prepare for this special event.I invite all of you to attend the Enthronement Divine Liturgy on Tuesday, June 4th.
May the good and loving Lord bless you always!
