The 19th Annual Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Perpetual Help will be held on August 17th, 18th & 19th in Olympia, WA at St. George’s Byzantine Catholic Parish.  The pilgrimage is designed to provide a unique opportunity for the spiritual enrichment of the entire family. If you have no plans for a summer vacation, consider a trip to the Pacific Northwest to enjoy spectacular scenery, and possibly make the trip a Byzantine experience by also visiting our parishes in Portland, OR and Seattle, WA.  Brochures are available in the small hall.



I can give you life, but only you can live it.

I can teach you things, but only you can learn.

I can give you directions, but I can’t be there to lead you.

I can allow you freedom, but I can’t account for it.

I can take you to church, but only you can believe.

I can teach right from wrong, but the choice will always be yours.

I can but you beautiful clothes, but I can’t make you beautiful inside.

I can offer you advice, but only you can accept it.

I can teach you to share, but only you can be unselfish.

I can teach you respect, but only you can show honor.

I can advise you about friends, but I can’t choose them for you.

I can advise you about sex, but I can never keep you pure.

I can teach you about alcohol, but only you can choose to be sober.

I can warn you about drugs, but only you can say “NO!”

I can teach you about kindness, but only you can be gracious.

I can teach you about sins, but I can’t make you moral.

I can pray for you, but only you can choose God.

I can teach you about Jesus, but only you can choose him as Lord.

I can tell you about love, but I can’t give you eternal life.

I can love you unconditionally all my life…and I will.
