St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Parish is a vibrant, family-oriented community that has been part of the Edmonton Eparchy for over 50 years. The community has always striven to provide programming for children and youth that fosters growth in faith, and love for God and neighbour, while having a lot of fun with friends, old and new.
My name is Joyanne and I'm so excited to be taking on this new venture as Youth Minister for St. Nick's. I grew up in this parish and have fond memories of attending various Bozhi Dity classes, Junior Youth events, and UCY retreats that have helped me grow in faith over the years. Hopefully I can share what I've learned through my travels and studies in a way that helps foster the faith I rely on so much every day in the children, youth, and young adults I work with.
BOZHI DITY INSTRUCTOR
My name is Brittany Ward. I first started with Bozhi Dity as an instructor in 2008. I then took over as the Program Coordinator in 2011. As a part of the program, children aged 3-10 are instructed a religious education lesson, complete a craft, and then participate in the second half of the liturgical service. Bozhi Dity is what brought me into the church as a child. I want to provide other children with the opportunity to enjoy that experience as well.
