Reverend Fathers! Brothers & Sisters in Christ!
In response to the imposed measures of quarantine and self-isolation during our collective battle with the COVID-19 pandemic, and as an offering to the faithful of our Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada to, nevertheless, keep our connection to worship and liturgy unbroken during this trying and challenging time, His Eminence Metropolitan Yurij has blessed the live-streaming of Divine Liturgies from various churches across our country.
With the blessing of His Grace Bishop Ilarion, the first such live-stream for the Western Eparchy will be offered from the Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, beginning at 8:50 AM. All the clergy and faithful of our eparchy are invited to watch, via Facebook, by visiting the cathedral’s page: https://facebook.com/UOCSJB/
Please circulate this message to as many of our faithful and your families and friends as possible! Help those that need assistance accessing the Facebook page! Please join our celebrating clergy tomorrow morning – gather your families and let us join in common prayer for our health, for the healing of the sick, and for the end to this current challenge to humanity! For the glory of God and for the good of His Church!
