CHRIST IS AMONG US! HE IS AND WILL BE!
Welcome to the Web Site of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Greek Catholic Parish, which serves a community in the city of Calgary and surrounding area. Our parish is a central point for religious and Ukrainian cultural activities. We are a thriving community, who gather to glorify God in worship and through service to our Lord Jesus Christ and one another. We invite you to join us!
The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church sponsored the delivery of the Shoe 'Gift' Boxes to Ukraine, for 2016. The Christmas Shoe Box Project for Ukraine wrapped up on Sunday November 20.
This year's Operation Christmas Child 2016 Ukraine Shoebox tally is: 92 filled shoeboxes (beating last year's collection of 90). Money collected totalled $864 (down from last year's $1287).
Many thanks and God's blessings to everyone who contributed with their time, monetary donations, shoebox gifts and especially much needed prayers for the children who will receive the shoeboxes in Ukraine. Thank-you to Maria Shysh for leading this initiative, and all volunteers.
Sorting Boxes for Delivery
In 1996, the Parish of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church embarked on a project to spirtually beautify the interior of the Church using traditional artistry of Byzantine Iconography. This was a 4 year project ending in 1999. Now approaching 20 years of the start of this project, the video 'The Art of Iconography' video produced by 'Echoes of Ukraine' captures and commemorates the process.
