Our Mission statement is as follows: · foster and promote an Orthodox consciousness among our members; · foster and promote the Orthodox Faith through various missionary endeavours, · foster and promote the ideals and traditions of our ancestral brotherhoods; · foster and promote the highest ideals of Canadian citizenship; · foster and promote Ukrainian Orthodox Liturgical music; and · aid Ukrainian Orthodox youth in the fulfillment of their aims and objectives.
Why We Were Organized
As Orthodox faithful within an ever-changing secular society, we are challenged to keep our faith and guard the strength it brings to our families and community. Members of the St. Volodymyr Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral saw the need for a spiritual group that would foster discussion, learning and community involvement in a modern context. Thus, the Fellowship was formed and named for Sts. Cyril and Methodios whose principles - mission and education - represent our goals.
Since our formation, the membership has actively worked to ensure a strong sense of fellowship and a strong presence of Orthodoxy in our communities - both Ukrainian and non-Ukrainian. With great pride, we carry on the tradition of living our Orthodox Faith. What Our Fellowship Does
The Fellowship is a multifaceted organization. Our activities benefit our members, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, the Ukrainian community and the general community in the Toronto area. Our activities have included: · monthly dinner meetings with guest speakers; · family retreats and conferences; volunteer community work including food drives and collecting clothing for the homeless; · collecting medical supplies and equipment for our Orthodox brothers and sisters in Ukraine; · organization and coordination of St. Stephen’s altar boy brotherhood; · Christian education and spiritual growth; · publications; · support of cultural endeavours; and much more.
