2014 Financial Report English
This past year was filled with very important events. On Sunday, April 27th we celebrated The Divine Mercy Sunday. This feast had a double meaning: the feast itself and the Canonization of two great Popes: John XXIII and John Paul II. The celebrations were well attended. Our main Mass was celebrated by Archbishop Albert Le Gatt and Most Rev. Lawrence Huculak from Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Winnipeg. Many priests and religious attended. The church was filled with believers not only from the city of Winnipeg, but also from the rural area.
The second great celebration took place on the feast of Saint Faustina. The devotion to the Divine Mercy and the Holy Mass took place on Monday, October 6th.
