The Restoration of the Church Building

The Parish currently doesn’t have money for the restoration of the church building. The province, the city and sponsors don’t give money. We can’t afford to do it as well. The Problem The building of the church is the part of the historical heritage; thus works can be done only with the approval of the Provincial Department of Cultural Heritage: 1. This Department requires an engineering research before the beginning of any restoration work (it is, approximately, 10-20 thousand CAD at our expense; and may be fifty per cent of the sum will be given back); 2. Next, the Department demands the restoration of the siding parts, foundation and windows....

Why Isn’t the Fence Being Built?

July 1, 2014; we have collected 9,145 CAD since October 1, 2013. Right now we are not able to build the fence because of the lack of approval from the Provincial Department of Cultural Heritage. In the mid-May the territory was marked out; we also arranged a digger to drill holes and install poles. But because of the rainy weather it was postponed till the beginning of June. In June the approval to build a fence was pending in the Department of Cultural Heritage. At the end of June the same department banned us from working with the hedge as it is the part of our territory heritage. The hedge spreads over the part of our territory and without its removal...

The Feast of Holy Apostles Peter and Paul

In midsummer, on June 12th, the Orthodox Christians commemorate the life and death of the two apostles – Peter and Paul. To be more precise, this day has been considered the day of their martyrdom since on the same day within a year from each other, somewhere around 67-68 AD, they both were martyred in Rome for their Faith. The two apostles are also connected by the fact that at some point in their lives they both were not at their Teacher’s side: Peter when he thrice denied knowing the Savior after His arrest, and Paul when he relentlessly persecuted Christ till on his way to Damascus he was blinded  by the brightest light descending from the sky....

Vladimir Icon of the Mother of God

Playground

At the beginning of June we informed you about the plans to build a playground on the territory of our church.  During the month we received necessary approvals, coordinated the project and applied for a grant from the Parks Foundation fund.
