AT ST. GEORGE’S CATHEDRAL, SASKATOON
Thursday, May 2nd the Social Justice Committee of Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral of St. George’s presented a unique fundraising event in cooperation with the young people from the City of Sambir (Ukraine). More than forty parishioners of St. George’s (mostly young people) and eleven Ukrainians were involved in this project. They created twenty unique outfits for the fashion show, participated as models, made the videos, created an exciting magnificent environment and setting, etc. and made this event come true! We thank everyone for the efforts and time spent on this undeniably valuable project. The sketches for the models were created by a young artist Victoria Ilnytska.
The pictures show only an intriguing glimpse on the event; currently, we do not want to reveal all of the pictures as we are planning to have more presentations of this fashion show at other places. Therefore, please follow our announcements, and if you were not able to experience this amazing atmosphere this time, we invite you to participate in our next fashion show!
Below is the feedback from the teachers from Sambir who came to Saskatoon with nine students on a student exchange program led by Laurianne Gabruch.

Dear our Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
On behalf of the Ukrainian students and all the parishioners of the Protection of Holy Mary Cathedral in the City of Sambir (Ukraine) we would like to express the warmest and sincerest “Thank You” for your organization and your active participation in the fundraising event “Come to me all”. The money raised will go for the elevator for our Cathedral in Ukraine. With God’s help and your loving and caring hearts we raised $ 3,245. These are the donations of all the participants of the event.
Also, it was announced at the event that our Sambir-Drohobych Eparchy would receive a generous $5,000 donation from the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Saskatoon to help us meet this need.
Therefore, we are extremely happy to experience such an immense support from our Canadian brothers and sisters. Hopefully, your generous donations will help the dream of many Ukrainians come true!
May God bless you!
