St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church
Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada (Ecumenical Patriarchate)
Bishop's Visitation

Our parish hosted Bishop Andriy for an hierarchical Liturgy on October 22nd to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the founding of our "Holy Protection" Sisterhood.  Fr. Bohdan, Fr. Lubomyr Hluchaniuk, Deacon Borys Melnyk, Subdeacon Franko Diakowsky and the altar servers of the parish concelebrated and served.  Our choir, under the direction of Lucy Ireland, sang the Liturgy very prayerfully.  Following the Liturgy everyone enjoyed a wonderful meal in the Fellowship Room.  Our Parish Council President, Dr. Paul Slavchenko, presented our Sisterhood President, Tamara Nelipa, with a beautiful framed photograph of the sisterhood as a memento.
