A Century of Service: Celebrating the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada, Eastern Eparchy

Date: Thursday, October 25, 2018 - Thursday, February 28, 2019

Ukrainians began immigrating to Canada as early as the 1880s from a society where church was an integral part of daily life. Of necessity, the initial years in a new land were devoted to basic survival, but by 1918, after almost 25 years of Ukrainian settlement in Canada, the Ukrainian Canadian community became strong enough financially and organizationally to respond to the spiritual, social and cultural needs of its members. That year, Ukrainians established the church of their forefathers in their new homeland, thereby contributing to Canada’s developing cultural fabric.  

In 2018, the Ukrainian Museum of Canada, Ontario Branch will recognize the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada.

Our educational exhibit will highlight the cultural and material heritage of the Eastern Eparchy churches in Ontario and Quebec, including their sacred textiles and embroideries, distinctive architecture, music of worship and celebration, icons and iconography, and the economic and community-building impact the churches and their halls have had within their geographic areas. 

This exhibit, suitable for all ages, will include educational programs for school and community groups.
