Holodomor Heading.jpg 

Wheat 1.jpgOn Tuesday, November 25, 2014 students, teachers and parents assembled for a special ceremony to commemorate the victims of the Holodomor-Genocide of 1932-1933 in Ukraine.

During our commemoration, 18 students held lit candles labeled with each region  affected by this man-made tragedy and symbolically placed them near the cross. In all, eighteen of twenty-five oblasti in Ukraine were affected.

Our students summarily read excerpts highlighting this tragedy during our multi-media presentation featuring photographs of student’s art work on the Holodomor. Poetry, the Otche nash sung by our resident opera student, video and youtube clips as well as art display boards helped to complete the touching tribute to the victims of the Holodomor.

We are grateful to Father Kachur who was able to come to our assembly. Father always has a special way of connecting us to our history or current events. He graciously shared his thoughts with us and encouraged us to continue to pray for peace in the world. As a collective community we prayed a special prayer to Mother Mary.


We thank the following students: Katherine K, Matthew P, Joseph Z, Anastasia N, Lydia T, Ksenia B, Mariyia S, Dmytro B, Sofia B, Aleksej Z, Denis G, Andrij D and all our candle holders Maxim K, Iryna V, Tiana W, Edward D, Alexandra Y, Daniel B, Christina G, Sophia I, Alina M, Marta S, Marta S, Martin K, Jason M, Michael P, Sasha C, Sophia R, Dana O, Tianna L.


Special thanks to out Ukrainian Department teachers - Mrs. McEvoy, Olga Gafijchuk, Svitlana Lazirko and Ulana Zurakowski for putting together such a touching tribute to the victims of the Holodomor.
