WELCOME FR. TARAS KINASH and FAMILY

What an extraordinarily special and memorable Pascha in our parish!
After a lengthy and complex process and a long journey in many ways, Fr. Taras Kinash and his family arrived in Ottawa on Friday, April 22, to become our new parish priest.

Glory be to Our Lord God for protecting and safely guiding Fr. Taras, Dobrodiyka Olya
and their two children to Ottawa and to our parish.
