COVID-19 update (17 March)

Paska, Ukrainian Easter bread

Due to concerns about COVID-19 transmission, this year's pre-Easter bazaar on Saturday 28 March will be restricted to pick-up of perogies and borscht. Concession stands for other goods will not be in operation, and access to the hall will be restricted. We hope you will still be able to support the Ukrainian-Canadian Cultural Society of Nanaimo and the Vesna Ukrainian Dancers, and pick up some lovely stuff to take home.

The Ukrainian-Canadian Cultural Society of Nanaimo and Vesna Ukrainian Dancers will be hosting their annual Christmas Bazaar in the church hall on Saturday 7 December, from 11 AM until 3 PM. This is a great opportunity to stock up on perogies, borscht, cabbage rolls, homemade baking, jams, pickles and relish, Ukrainian novelties, and much more, as well as to buy tickets for the perogy raffle. The organisers are also accepting donations of empty bottles for their ongoing fundraising efforts.

Please note that to accommodate the bazaar, our Divine Liturgy that day is rescheduled to 4 PM.
