Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION

Church history documented

  • Print
IN recognition of St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church's long and distinguished history, a 348-page commemorative book, St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church: Celebrating 100 years -- together for tomorrow, was published earlier this year.

Researched and written by June Dutka, Librarian Emeritus, University of Manitoba, it documents this Byzantine rite church's history with text and photos, some of these rare and archival.

Researching documents and documentation, sorting and labeling countless photos, interviewing numerous parishioners who had memories to share was a labour of love for the researcher. Ultimately, the scope of the project proved so large that it took over six years to complete. As well, the eye-catching design by graphic designer Cynthia Chuckree not only embellishes the text, but also reflects the significance of the church's history.

Launched to the clergy and its parishioners in June of this year, a general launch is being planned for early 2007.

Established in 1899 by Fr. John Polywka, a priest of the Order of St. Basil the Great, St. Nicholas Church is a rather unique monument to faith.

It is the oldest Ukrainian Catholic church in the city and the first urban Ukrainian Catholic one in Canada.
