At this time of struggle for the people of Ukraine, for the very existence of their free, independent state, please remember in your prayers all who are suffering under the violence of the unprovoked invasion of their land, all who are driven from their homes, all who are forced to seek refuge in other countries, all who are providing succour and aid to those in need, and all who are fighting for their freedom and the freedom of those whom they love.

Earlier COVID restrictions on the number of attendees at religious celebrations in British Columbia have been lifted, and we are pleased to be able to welcome all parishioners and visitors to our regular 11AM Saturday morning Divine Liturgy. Masks are now optional. Due to the age and vulnerability of some of our parishioners we ask that you sit with your family members or household. Communal singing is now permitted. Father Yuriy will continue to administer holy communion using the disposable wooden spoons, and will wear a mask while doing so.
We will continue to live-stream video of Divine Liturgy from Victoria at 10AM on Sunday mornings on our Journal page.
