Come, join members of our parish for coffee and sweet treats after the Divine Liturgy, Sundays. On special occassions, enjoy delicious potluck meals that fuse the culinary talents of parishioners — to delight the taste buds of young and old alike; or sip “Coffee with Отець”, a chance to engage Fr. Jaroslaw on Orthodox approaches to contemporary questions and the challenges of modern life in a relaxed, informal setting.

Sunday School

From September to the end of June, children from 5 to 13 have the opportunity to join their peers at Sunday School at All Saints of Ukraine Chapel, under the direction of Dobr. Natalia Buciora. Classes, which combine fun, friendship and religious instruction, start shortly after the beginning of the Divine Liturgy — and end before The Lord’s Prayer so that the children may approach for Communion.

There came to St. Antony in the desert one of the wise men of that time and said: “Father, how can you endure to live here, deprived as you are of all consolation from books?”

Antony answered: “My book, philosopher, is the nature of created things, and whenever I wish I can read in it the works of God.”

— Evagrius of Pontus

Whom have we Lord, like You — the Great One who became small, the Wakeful who slept, the Pure One who was baptized, the Living One who died, the King who abased Himself to ensure honour for all. Blessed is Your honour!

It is right that man should acknowledge Your divinity, it is right for heavenly beings to worship Your humanity. The heavenly beings were amazed to see how small You became, and earthly ones to see how exalted.

— St. Ephrem the Syrian

The Holy Spirit is light and life, a living fountain of knowledge, Spirit of wisdom, Spirit of understanding, loving, righteous, filled with knowledge and power, cleansing our offences, God and making us god, Fire that comes forth from Fire, speaking, working, distributing gifts of grace. By Him were all the prophets, the apostles of God and all the martyrs crowned.

Strange were the tidings, strange was the vision at Pentecost: Fire came down, bestowing gifts of grace on each.

— From Vespers on the Feast of Pentecost
