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.
