This is St. Andrew's first attempt at a website, any thoughts are welcome. the site has a link that will translate it into Ukrainian as well.

what a great website!  I think every parish should have a website.  before I went to my church, I studied old bullitins and pictures, and it really helped me loose that feeling of "unfirmilliar territory".

again, good job Smiley

The web page is nicely done.

I only had a few observations.

First, the "About Ukrainian Orthodoxy" link takes us to a page that is directly taken from: http://orthodoxyinamerica.org/about_orthodoxy.html.  In the least it should also site the source of said information like the original page does - "The following articles on Orthodoxy are from the book, These Truths We Hold - The Holy Orthodox Church: Her Life and Teachings, published by and available from Saint Tikhon's Seminary Press"

Second, in your photos for Palm Sunday, the article states "Over 400 faithful attended this year's Palm Sunday Liturgy."  There were not even close to that many.  Even your own photos don't show 400 people.  Why the need for all the misinformation?

Liza, thank you for your comments, the site is still a work in progress, and actually im not the webmaster, just a parisioner. However, I can verify that there were close to 400 people on Palm Sunday, it was unbelievable. If you look closely to the pictures there are 4 rows of pews, not just the 2 main ones. The choir holds pews as well and there were an additional 40-50 people in in the choir balcony as well as the 25- 30 in the choir. There were also many people standing at the back of the church. The unfortunate part however, is that many of the people who came on Sunday were those that come 2-3 times a year, christmas, palm sunday, and easter. Many came I belive just for holy confession and communion. However it is better to attend liturgy 2-3 times a year than not at all. Also, a good portion of the people are newer immigrants from Ukraine as the Chicagoland area has had large number of arrivals the past ten years. Holy communion took almost an hour to complete due to so many people in line.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holyweek.
