✙ ✙ ✙
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.
