Christ is Born

May Jesus, our Savior, bestow upon you and your family the joy,

peace and love of this holy Christmas season. God is with us!

This icon has been on display during the Christmas season in Philadelphia, PA at Holy Ghost Byzantine Catholic Church.


Events Calendar

  • Christmas caroling in the neighborhood is today: Sunday,
    December 23rd from 5-7 pm. Get into the holiday spirit
    and help us sing the music of the season.
  • Following the midnight Divine Liturgy for Christmas there
    will be a very early morning meal. About 1 a.m. come to
    the hall to share salad, ham, soup, potatoes & cookies. Bring any other covered dish if you’d like. At this time we start to use the seasonal greeting: Christ is Born! The response: Glorify Him! In Slavonic: Christos Razdajetsja! Slavite Jeho!

Please remember the sick of the parish and their family & friends. May God’s healing power be upon them.


Rectory Heat

The new furnaces have been installed and are working fine. We’ve started collecting money for the building fund so we can pay back the $8,500 loan from the eparchy. Donations are welcomed and encouraged!


House Blessings

It is our tradition to bless all parishioners’ homes soon after the celebration of Theophany. Please let the rectory know when you’re available to have Fr. Innocenti bless your home with the new Jordan water that is blessed on January 6th.

Give a spiritual prayer for Christmas. We have candle gift cards that you can send/give to a loved one, friend, or someone who needs prayers. A single 6-day candle is $5. For an entire month the cost is $25. When giving your donation use the candle envelope in the back of the church. Paired with it, take the candle card to give as a gift.  In addition to the name on the candle envelope please specify a start date if you would like the church to light the candle(s) in front of Jesus or Mary for you on a future date.
