Pray for Ukraine

We continue to pray together for God`s protection for the people of Ukraine against any foreign invasion and military aggression. 
Pray that Ukraine becomes a peaceful and unified country.

Every Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Ukrainian Catholic Church and the Bishop Velychkovsky National Martyr’s Shrine the community gathers to Prayer for Ukraine.  The hour of prayer includes praying the Rosary, praying the Blessed Vasyl Chaplet and praying special prayers specifically for peace and safety in Ukraine. You can also join online at the Shrine’s YouTube Channel and Facebook.

20 Years of Blessings & Graces

Twenty years ago, a holy gift was received in the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Winnipeg. On September 16th to the 22nd, the holy relics of Blessed Vasyl Velychkovsky were transferred from All Saints Cemetery to St. Joseph’s Ukrainian Catholic Church. Since then, every Wednesday at 7 p.m., there has been a Blessed Vasyl Devotional Service. During the service, there are intercessory prayers for the needs of all participants and prayers that have been placed in the prayer box. Each service concludes with an anointing using Holy Oil blessed by relics of Blessed Vasyl.
