Pastoral Letter to the Ukrainian Catholic Faithful Image and Likeness of God


How do we as Ukrainian Catholics respond to those who are faced with the age-old questions of life and death? How do we remain faithful to the teaching of the Church, and at the same time journey with those in the midst of suffering and loneliness?

Family Matters - Growing Holy Families in the 21st Century

Pope Francis has asked that the whole Church take time to reflect on family life: What is God’s will for families? How do we live a life of Holiness? What is the meaning of the Sacrament of Marriage? etc. To help renew our marriages and family life the Edmonton Eparchy has devoted a new section on the website: Family Matters – Growing Holy Families in the 21st Century.

New Particular Law for the Ukrainian Catholic Church

Patriarch Sviatoslav Shevchuk promulgated the new Particular Law for the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on April 7, 2015. Both the English and Ukrainian texts are now available for reading and study.

Becoming a More Welcoming Parish: Letter on the Survey Results

Thank you to all who responded to the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Edmonton’s “Becoming a More Welcoming Parish” survey. The Eparchial Pastoral Council and I have compiled the results and will be using them as a foundation for engaging our Ukrainian Catholic community in the process of renewal, as addressed in the 25 Year Pastoral Plan (the Plan). We will also be sharing results pertinent to each parish with the respective parish pastors and councils to help each parish to build on its strengths and grow into an even more welcoming parish.

Restoration of the Liturgical Practice of the KISS OF PEACE (ENG/UKR)

The Kiss of Peace is an expression of reconciliation and unity between the people present at a liturgical assembly. It originates with the widespread custom, in the ancient Western Mediterranean world, of people greeting each other with a kiss on the cheek. This was the custom in ancient Judea and was also practiced by Christians.

25 Year Pastoral Plan

Over the past several years, the Eparchial Pastoral Council has embarked upon an ambitious endeavour in discerning and preparing a 25 Year Pastoral Plan for the Eparchy of Edmonton.

Becoming A More Welcoming Parish

I was a stranger and you welcomed me (Matthew 25:35) The Ukrainian Catholic Church throughout Alberta has embarked upon an exciting and courageous 25 Year Pastoral Plan, entitled Evangelization: A New Springtime.

Home of Hope Project

The Edmonton Eparchy in partnership with the Bridge of Hope has embarked on a charitable project entitled “Home of Hope”.
