On Saturday, December 1, the University of New Haven hosted a very well-attended concert and public forum commemorating the 85th anniversary of the Holodomor and the fifth anniversary of the Maidan Revolution of Dignity.
The concert was the brainchild of virtuoso pianist Victor Markiw, lecturer in music at the University of New Haven, and was co-organized with Olena Lennon, adjunct professor of political science at UNH.
Read the Ukrainian Weekly press on the event here.
You are invited to attend the St. Nicholas Play to be held on Sunday, December 23, 2018, 12 noon, in the church hall.
We worship first, and the play follows the Divine Liturgy.
The Ukrainian Ridna Skhola (School) students will be performing at this traditional event. St. Nicholas will make a presentation for all the good children.
Please support the school and bring your children/grandchildren to this event. This is a great opportunity to learn an aspect of our Faith and share life in community. We also need an audience!
(Parents can bring gifts to the kitchen for distribution later by St. Nicholas. It’s a secret for the children.)
We are a small school presently, but we are still keeping traditions.
