Ukrainian Democratic Youth Organization (ODUM)

The Simon Petlura Detroit Chapter of the Ukrainian Democratic Youth Organization (ODUM) was formed in 1953. Throughout its existence there have been many active members including Peter Kytasty, Lida (Korol) Kytasty, Jurij and Taisa Rozhin, Luba (Khudiak) Zura, Halyna and Vasyl Kolosiuk, Nina (Vovenko) Starostenko, Lesia Ciura, Alexander Siomka, Andriy Smyk, Vera Petrusha and others. The cultural work of the chapter flourished – a newsletter was published, choirs were organized, a theater group was formed and presented the play Bondarivna as well as the Fialky young women’s singing ensemble led by P. Kytasty. There was also a volleyball team in the 1970s. Members of the ODUM chapter participated in cultural programs presented by the Detroit Ukrainian community and helped organize Ukrainian cultural evenings at local universities to better inform others about the history and culture of Ukraine. 

In 2010, the leadership of the ODUM Detroit chapter are: Ivan Kytasty (President), Anatoli Murha (1st VP), Halya Petrusha- Zarewych (2nd VP & youth chairperson), Natalie Prytula (Treasurer). In the summer of 2010, ten scouts camped at the ODUM “Ukraina” encampment near London, Ontario in Canada. Participants included: Gabriel Poletz, Maxym and Zynoviy Birko, Tatiana and Emiliya Smyk, Timko and Evdokia Blysniuk, Yarko Petrusha, Zachary and Ava Zarewych.

 

ODUM celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2010 and in 2011, the 50th anniversary of ODUM camps. From July 1-4, 2011 there will be a Jamboree of all past and present members of ODUM at “Ukraina” near London, Canada. There will be sporting competitions, concerts, a dance and other activities for young and old. The plans for this event are being coordinated by Vera Petrusha (elected President of ODUM Central Committee) and Sonia Smyk (2nd VP and Camp Chairperson).

Субота . Saturday, JUNE 3 -
10:00 a.m. Свята Літургія – Батьківська або Родительська Субота

Please come on Saturday to attend Memorial Sunday Services when we have an opportunity to pray for all our family members who have Fallen Asleep in the Lord. The day before the Feast of Pentecost is one set aside by the Orthodox Church for remembrance and prayer for those who are no longer with us.

Перед святкуванням свята Тройці, з давніх давен у Православній Церкві відбувається особлива поминальна служба: Троїцька батьківська поминальна субота. В суботу звершується поминальна літургія, після якої служиться вселенська панахида.
Свято Святої Тройці – це свято заснування Церкви, тож не дивно, що святі отці вирішили напередодні цього свята поминати всіх раніш спочилих отців, матерів, братів та сестер наших. Таким чином і їх прилучити до свята заснування Церкви Христової. В день заснування Церкви, день Святої Трійці, Дух Божий все в світі освятив: і живих, і померлих. Тому отці Церкви від заснування Церкви поминали померлих, своїх батьків, братів і сестер.

Mat. 25:14-30
14 For [it is] as [when] a man, going into another country, called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one; to each according to his several ability; and he went on his journey.
16 Straightway he that received the five talents went and traded with them, and made other five talents.
17 In like manner he also that [received] the two gained other two.
18 But he that received the one went away and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.
19 Now after a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and maketh a reckoning with them.
20 And he that received the five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: lo, I have gained other five talents.
21 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will set thee over many things; enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
22 And he also that [received] the two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: lo, I have gained other two talents.
23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will set thee over many things; enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
24 And he also that had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art a hard man, reaping where thou didst not sow, and gathering where thou didst not scatter;
25 and I was afraid, and went away and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, thou hast thine own.
26 But his lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I did not scatter;
27 thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the bankers, and at my coming I should have received back mine own with interest.
28 Take ye away therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him that hath the ten talents.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not, even that which he hath shall be taken away.
30 And cast ye out the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.
