The Niagara Region has proclaimed as ‘State of Emergency’ in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic. Under the spiritual guidance of His Eminence Metropolitan Yurij, primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, our temple remains closed for public worship at this time.
We wish all of our faithful, visitors and supporters spiritual and physical strength to bear this time of uncertainty. We ask for your fervent prayers to our merciful Lord, God and Saviour Jesus Christ, His most pure mother, and to all the saints for a peaceful and speedy end to this time of pestilence.
As Orthodox Faithful, we are called to be good stewards of the world which God has given us. All are encouraged and even compelled through their faith in God to listen to the recommendations of our civil and medical authorities; to ‘shelter in place’, to keep good hygiene, to 'social distance' outselves from one another, to avoid as much as possible our outings to stores, only going when it is vitally necessary.
We also remind our faithful and supporters, that while our temple might not be open for public worship, the cost of maintaining it has not disappeared. We urge all of you to consider making a financial contribution at this time to be good stewards of the community we continue to build in Jesus Christ. We will in short order be offering online – electronic donations to be made. Please consider joining the PAR program (more information can be found on the How to Donate page). Or mail in your offering.
Below you will find a number of spiritual resources to help you to pray at home as a family during this trying time. God Bless and keep you!
