Plastyanytsia Hop 2013
The UCY’s annual Plastyanytsia Hop for the 2013 Easter Season was very successful. The youth travelled to eight different churches as a group. Over the course of the afternoon, the number of participants ranged from five to thirteen. Youth came from around four or five different Parishes. The event started at 4:00 on the south side of Edmonton at St. Nicholas and wound its way around the whole city ending up in each end, at one of the many Ukrainian Catholic churches and ended up downtown at St. Josaphat’s Cathedral ending closer to 11:00pm. The youth learnt a lot by having self lead sessions or by spending times singing, praying and speaking with our many different clergy members. The event was enlightening and a growing experience!
Calling youth and young adults ages13-35.
Come join us as we pray and share our faith this Good Friday.
We will start at 2:45 p.m. at St. Josaphat Cathedral, transportation and snacks are provided.
You can come for the whole evening or join us at any time. For more information call Michael @ 780-893-3238.
