Dr. Carole Medvesky began singing in the church choir at age 5 at St. Michael's Greek Catholic Church in South Fork, Pennsylvania. It was there that she learned the Divine Liturgy in Slavonic. In 1983, she joined St. Therese Church, sang alto in the choir and learned the Tropars and Kondaks. In 1996, she began substituting for the head cantor at both Saturday and Sunday Liturgies. Today Dr. Carole still sings alto each Sunday and serves as lead cantor when needed. She considers it an honor to sing the liturgy and is extremely proud of her Byzantine Catholic traditions and heritage. She maintains, "Sunset Smiles," a private dental practice in Clearwater, Florida.


Jim Peterson

O Lord I believe and profess that You are truly Christ the Son of the Living God who came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the first. Accept me todayas a partaker of Your mystical supper, O Son of God, for I will not reveal Your mystery to Your enemies nor will I  give you a kiss as did Judas, but like the thief I confess to You:

Remember me, O Lord, when You shall come into Your kingdom.

Remember me, O Master, when You shall come into Your kingdom.

Remember me, O Holy One, when You shall come into Your kingdom.

May the partaking of Your Holy mysteries, O Lord, be not for my judgement or condemnation, but for the healing of soul and body.

O Lord, I also believe and profess, that this, which I am about to receive,  is truly Your most precious body and Your life giving blood, which, I pray, make me worthy to receive for the remission of all my sins and for life everlasting. Amen.

O God, have mercy on me a sinner.

O God, cleanse me of my sins and have mercy on me.

O Lord, forgive me for I have sinned without number.
