Cleaning for Pascha
A heartfelt thanks to all the parishioners, both young and old, who turned out to help clean the church before Pascha.
Sunday School Lesson ~ The Raising of Lazarus
Teams of kids compete to wrap their volunteer 'Lazarus' in 'burial shrouds' in a lesson the week before Pascha. Sunday School is held in the school building every Sunday from 10 to 11 am (except on Youth Sunday - the first Sunday of each month). Lessons and crafts are planned to coincide with the days of the Church calendar. All kids are welcome!
Youth Sundays are held the first Sunday of every month. All of our younger parishioners are encouraged to get involved in the Divine Liturgy by reading, serving, handing out candles or singing in the choir.
You might have noticed all of the work taking place on the roof of our church - but are you aware of all the work going on in the church hall? Our thanks goes out to all of our parishioners who have donated their time and talents at our many perohy bees. Through their efforts, they have generated thousands of dollars for the roof project.

Rev. Protopresbyter Bohdan Sencio, V. Rev. Fr. Volodymyr (Walter) Makarenko. After the Moleben the celebration continued with a banquet held in the church hall, which included a special program to recognize his many years of service to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada.
