Homodomor Remembrance Day – Sunday, Nov 26th

This year marks 90 years since millions of Ukrainians died of starvation. This man-made famine was a result of food, livestock, grain and farm equipment being taken away throughout Ukraine under the Soviet regime.

The Ukrainian Canadian Congress (BC) and the Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral are jointly organizing a day of remembrance with a solemn commemoration on Sunday, November 26th at 1:00 pm.  The memorial prayers will take place at the Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral located at 154 E. 10th Avenue, Vancouver.

We remember, unite and shall overcome!
