UKRAINIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH OF THE HOLY TRINITY
AN INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY FOR ALL
UKRAINIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH of CANADA
CELEBRATES 100 YEARS
From Metropolitan Yurij's letter regarding the Coronavirus pandemic:
"While maintaining and adhering to our theological beliefs and truths, particularly regarding the Holy Eucharist (that is the Holy Body and Precious Blood of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and that it is consumed to give us life, not harm us), we need to adjust other aspects of our church practices and community life.
As individuals and community, we should follow the directives given and updated by our governmental authorities. If someone feels ill or exhibits symptoms of the flu they should not come to church, but remain at home and follow the advice of their doctor.
Frequent handwashing and wiping of surfaces with disinfectant products and appropriate gels and liquids are a good practice to inhibit the spread of disease. Parishes should make these products available for use by the faithful near the entrance to the Narthex and the Nave. Reverencing the blessing-hand, hand shakes, embraces, and the thrice-kiss on the cheeks should be replaced by a slight bow. Honour towards the Holy Gospels, the Cross and Icons should be expressed through a slight bow. Antiseptic liquids and cloth should be nearby to wipe these surfaces in any event."
Due to the escalation of the Coronavirus spred in Ontario,
Following the massage of Metropolitan Yurij
ALL CHURCH SERVICES ARE SUSPENDED

THE PRAYER TO THE HOLY TRINITY
All-Holy Trinity, have mercy on us.
O Lord, cleanse us from our sins.
O Master, pardon our transgressions.
O Holy One, visit us and heal our infirmities for Your Name’s sake.
“The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name.”
