Bringing Christmas Joy

Our parish is blessed with a wonderful youth group.  Our older youth are organized under the auspices of CYMK/Ukrainian Orthodox Youth, and as such often participate in common events throughout the Greater Toronto Area.  In addition, we regularly host retreats and other spiritual, social, and service events and activities here in Oshawa.

Our younger children are benefitted by Sunday School lessons and participation in age-appropriate events along with our older youth, including Christmas Caroling for our older or infirm parishioners, pysanka writing workshops, etc.

A favourite every year is our annual celebration in honour of Holy Father Nicholas on December 18th.

The greatest joy of our parish is that our youth actively participate in our liturgical life, reading and singing in the choir, serving in the altar, and helping out wherever and whenever needed.

We are proud of our youth, who actively work to make our parish, our community, and our world a better place.
