Help for Ukraine

3/30/22 | Announcements

American Martyrs is supporting efforts to help Ukraine in two ways - by directing monetary donations to Catholic Relief Services, and by supporting the donation of basic life essentials to Help for Ukraine, a project that is being coordinated by three AMC parishioner families of Ukrainian descent.

    support the "Help for ukraine" project

    Support the Help for Ukraine ministry work of Carolyn Bingaman, Megan Fraher and Andrika King, three women of Ukrainian descent who are coordinating with the Ukrainian community in Pennsylvannia. American Martyrs is proud to be part of the effort to help Ukraine. Millions of families in Ukraine need medical care, clean water, and emergency services. There is a desperate need for medical supplies. Resources are scarce and we - collectively as a parish community - can do more.

    We are coordinating our efforts with St. Vladimir’s Ukrainian Catholic Church in Pennsylvania, a small parish not far from where we grew up.  When we learned about the overwhelming support this small parish of 50 families was able to provide via immediate family and contacts inside Ukraine, we felt compelled to join the efforts in delivering humanitarian aid to help so many.  This is important to us as we are of Ukrainian descent, and we coincidentally made this powerful connection with Father Myron who has been instrumental in facilitating transport of medical supplies to those most in need.

    To learn more about Father Myron, his connections to Ukraine, and his efforts in Pennsylvania, please take a minute to read this moving article.   How Scranton Is Helping the People of Ukraine
