A Day In The Life Of Nykyta Budka   

 

On Wednesday, February 6, 2013, Fr. Evanko came to our school to re-enact as it were, a chapter from the life of Nykyta Budka —  the first Ukrainian Catholic Bishop in Canada.

Fr. Evanko began with a traditional church hymn and from there read, spoke and sang about daily life in the new and harsh
winter on the prairies at the turn of the century.  The students listened as though it was really Bishop Nykyta Budka speaking to them from his daily journals.

We thank Fr. Evanko for his most interesting and unusual one-man-show highlighting the earlier struggles for Ukrainian Catholic religion in Canada.
