Following the construction of our Temple in 1949/50, the original building was transformed into the parish hall. When "Fiesta," the local multicultural festival, was established in 1974, our hall became known as the "Odesa Hall" as our parish pavilion was named after this famous Ukrainian port city.
By 2011 the hall had reached the end of its useful life, and after serious and prayerful consideration of all the possible options, the parish decided to build a new hall which would more perfectly serve the current needs of the community. After the long and taxing process of finalizing a design, obtaining the necessary permits, and choosing a contractor, as well as an extremely successful fund-raising campaign, construction of the new hall began in April of 2019
Once construction resumed it became evident how beautiful the new hall would be. Our contractor, Fayer Construction, did an absolutely marvellous job both in regards to the construction of the new building, as well as in aesthetically integrating the new with the old.
None of this would have been possible without the overwhelming generosity of our parishioners and friends. Though the new hall is almost entirely paid for, if you would like to make a donation towards this project you may do so by using the Donate Now button on our web-site. We offer continued prayers and thanksgiving to God on behalf of all our donors and supporters.
An official grand opening will be held when circumstances again permit such gatherings.
We are truly grateful to God for this wonderful new hall, and look forward to welcoming you to our new parish community centre!
