    Dr. Patrick Clark has helped organize the Divine Liturgy at the University of Scranton. Various local Byzantine Priests, including Fr. Christopher, our pastor, celebrate this liturgy at the chapel on campus.  If you have a student or parishioner at the college or Marywood University, please let them know of this item or have them send an email to:  melkite.scranton@gmail.com and a schedule with priests will be forwarded to them.  These liturgies keep the doors open at Ciszek Hall.  Our Lenten Mission also has an evening at that location.  Please go to scranton.edu to consult times where the school is on break.
