The Sheptytsky Institute Choir held its first rehearsal of the year on Tuesday, September 8. It will continue with rehearsals every Tuesday evening from 8:15pm to 9:45pm at St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Shrine in Ottawa. The Shrine is located at 952 Green Valley Crescent (near Prince of Wales and Heron). New members are welcome. The Choir is preparing for its debut concert in Oakville, ON on Saturday, November 7. The concert will be a fundraiser to support the Sheptytsky Institute’s Ukraine Student Scholarship Fund. The war in Ukraine has increased the need to help students who would like to study in Canada – at the Institute.
The renowned conductor, Maestro Uwe Lieflander, continues to direct the Choir. For more information, call Fr. Peter Galadza at 613-882-8272.
