Feast Day at St. Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Church
Guest Blog from Bishop Kenneth Nowakowski of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of New Westminster
November 5, 2016, was a day of celebration for our Parish Feast Day at St. Michael the Archangel parish in Nanaimo, British Columbia, on a lovely Pacific Island!
Celebrating with me were Fr. Theo Machinsky, Fr. Steven Basarab, and Deacon Mykhailo Ozorovych. Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate (SSMI) from New Westminster attended and brought with them Sr. Terry Ann Slota SSMI, the SSMI Superior General from Rome, on official visitation of the Canadian Province of the SSMIs. After a wonderful and very prayerful Divine Liturgy everyone retired to the parish hall for a delicious lunch—speeches were kept to a minimum!
