Feast Day June 27 2015 Celebrations

Blessed Bishop and Martyr Vasyl Velychkovsky, C.Ss.R. was beatified in 2001 by St. Pope John Paul II. His holy relics (a fully intact body) are enshrined in a shrine chapel at St. Joseph’s Ukrainian Catholic Church in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. This is Canada’s Second Martyr’s Shrine. A museum is also attached depicting his holy life.

Since the enshrinement, this Shrine has become a source of grace and blessing for many people.
