General Information

BAPTISMS

Parents must arrange a personal meeting with Father Ihor to make arrangements. Godparents must be practicing Orthodox Christians. Baptizing a child in the Orthodox faith presupposes that the child will be raised as an Orthodox Christian.

WEDDINGS

Couples wishing to marry in the church must meet with Father Ihor to make arrangements. If one of the couple is not Orthodox then certain conditions may apply.  A special request can be made for our church choir to sing the wedding service.
