Ms. Irene Cehelsky

Today, February 28, 2021 is the 100th birthday of Ms. Irene Cehelsky, the long-time curator of the Museum of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, now the Patriarch Mstyslav Museum of the Ukrainian History and Education Center. Here are some clips from a video about the museum that she made in the late 1990s.

The current leadership and staff of the UHEC owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Ms. Cehelsky's work in the early decades of the museum. We wish her good health and all the best!

Mnohii Lita, pani Iryno!

UHEC fans decorating Christmas tree

Since COVID-19 won’t let us meet in person in 2020 to trim the UHEC Christmas trees and sing carols, we thought we could still share the holiday fun and bring everyone together virtually. We would love to share your video Christmas/Holiday/New Years greetings with the UHEC community during that virtual fundraiser.

Please send us a video clip with your greeting!

It should be no longer than 20 seconds with 2 seconds pause at the beginning and end of your greeting. The deadline is December 12, 2020.
