HOLY CROSS UKRAINIAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
We are the largest Ukrainian Catholic parish in Northwestern Ontario, established in early sixties within the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Toronto.
We are an active community who strive to live and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those of our day. We find support in our communal prayer which is conducted mostly in English language and is in accord with the Ukrainian Byzantine Rite. We also welcome individuals and their families of different backgrounds who recognize the beauty of Byzantine Tradition and choose the Byzantine Rite to worship God.
FATHER STEPAN DIDUR
Father Stepan Didur joined our parish in Thunder Bay in the spring of 2016. Father Stepan brings a wealth of knowledge through his many years of pastoral experience which is reflected in his teachings and sermons. He adds his own dry sense of humor to his sermons which discuss both historical and current themes.
We welcome him to our parish.
Outside of church, you can find him taking walks around the neighbourhood, or playing his many musical instruments. Father Stepan is a talented musician playing multiple instruments including: guitar, drums, flute, trombone, saxophone, piano, organ and others!
