In his sermon, the bishop said: "Celebrating this holiday of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary we trust God and sincerely ask that the Lord accept our sacrifice so that our prayer is met…so we may be part of the activity of God's grace.”

According to hieromonk Ignatius Moskaluk, OSBM, the administrator of the parish and pastor of the monastery, "the highlight of our church is Jesus Christ, the wonderworking icon of the Mother of God, and the pure souls of people who go to confession and receive Eucharist."
