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.
Follow the events of 20 years ago on our Facebook page:
To mark the 20th anniversary, come and join us in prayer on Wednesday, September 21, for the Acathist Hymn to Blessed Martyr Bishop Vasyl Velychkovsky at 7 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Church and Shrine (250 Jefferson Avenue). The service will be followed by an informal gathering downstairs to share memories of that week that have impacted our lives. We look forward to having you join us in prayer and fellowship.
