Silent Art Auction Fundraiser to Support Medical Help in Ukraine

Dear Friends of Ukraine,

Since the start of Russia's war against Ukraine, Dr. Oleh Antonyshyn, a Toronto-based surgeon, as well as other teams of volunteers, have been travelling to Ukraine on missions to offer medical assistance and perform reconstructive surgery on wounded soldiers and civilians. These humanitarian activities are conducted under the auspices of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation (CUF).

Our mother, Daria Sawka, an artist from Montreal, has kindly donated 46 of her oil paintings to raise funds in support of this worthshile cause.

Sunday, 15 September 3pm – 6pm

Josyf Slipyj Museum

6175A – 10th Avenue, Montreal
(adjacent to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church)

ALL proceeds will go towards supporting Dr. Antonyshyn and his surgical team to teach and equip medical personnel in Ukraine, and to perform reconstructive surgery on victims of war. Inquiries can be sent to dariafundraiser@gmail.com.

To view the paintings, please see www.sawkaphoto.com/daria.

We kindly invite you to this fundraiser and thank you in advance for your support!

Stephan, Volodymyr, Bohdan and Roxolana Sawka

Liturgical Vestment Colors of the Orthodox Church


Liturgical Vestment Colors of the Orthodox Church

The Orthodox clergy wear two kinds of robes, non-liturgical and liturgical. The non-liturgical robes are the ordinary daily clothing of the clergy, worn underneath ‘liturgical robes’. Liturgical robes, or ‘vestments’, are worn during church services.

The non-liturgical robes are called cassocks (Greek rason, Ukrainian pidryasnyk) and outer cassocks (Greek exo-rason, Slavonic riassa). Cassocks are floor-length garments that have long sleeves fitted like shirtsleeves. Outer cassocks are also floor-length garments, but they’re more loosely fitting, with very large sleeves.
