As of 19 Novemmber 2020, following newly instituted province-wide restrictions to combat the recent dramatic rise in COVID-19 cases, public religious celebrations are suspended until further notice. Father Yuriy will continue to live-stream Divine Liturgy by video from St Nicholas parish in Victoria, at 10AM on Sundays, and this can be watched on the Journal page.
At St Michael the Archangel we regularly celebrate Divine Liturgy on Saturday morning at 11 AM. Additional services may be held for Holy Days, and are announced in our parish bulletin and online journal. Saints days and feasts are celebrated according to the Gregorian calendar.Why Saturday? Our priest, Father Yuriy Vyshnevskyy, is the Rector of St Nicholas the Wonderworker parish in Victoria, BC. He celebrates Sunday liturgy there, so comes to celebrate in Nanaimo on Saturdays.
Set times for the sacrament of confession are not posted, but the priest is usually available before and after Divine Liturgy, on request.
