The Father and Head of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church His Beatitude Sviatoslav in the frames of the pastoral visit to the Eparchy of Toronto and Eastern Canada on the 2nd of October 2016 paid a visit to the Parish of St. George the Great Martyr in Oshawa which is 104 years old.

As was reported by the Eparch of the Parish Fr. Dmytro Hancharyk, to the Hierarchical Liturgy led by His Beatitude Sviatoslav came a lot of the faithful from the Ukrainian community of Oshawa.  Together with the Primate there prayed the priests of the  Eparchial Administration of Toronto and Eastern Canada.

In his homily to the faithful His Beatitude Sviatoslav  focused on the Gospel reading of the Sunday after the Exaltation: "If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily  and follow me." 

After the Worship Service the Ukrainian community and clergy had a joint meal in which took part the parishioners and honorable guests. At the end, the Head of the UGCC thanked the eparchial organizations for their faithful service to their Church.
