2019 is a year which is full of significant anniversaries of Priestly ordinations. Eight of our priests are thanking God for many years of ministry in the church.
Fr. Andriy Mykytyuk was ordained a priest 10 years ago. Fr. Paul Babie 15 years ago. Fr. Ihor Holovko 20 years. In 1994, twenty-five years ago, three priests were ordained. Fr. Zdan Kolomyjec, Very Rev. Wolodymyr Kalinecki and Very Rev. Simon Ckuj. Fr. Peter Struk was ordained 30 years ago while Fr. Laurie Foote was ordained 50 years ago.
- Very Rev. Fr. Simon Ckuj was elevated to the rank of Archpresbyter
- Fr Simon Ckuj named new Vicar General
- Bishop Peter on Pastoral Visit to Perth
Having taken the advice of the Eparchial College of Consultors, the Eparchy has decided to elevate Very Rev. Laurence Foote OP to the rank of Archimandrite and Very Rev. Fr. Simon Ckuj to the rank of Archpresbyter with the right to wear a gold cross with decorations and the epigonation.
We pray that God may bless all our worthy priests and deacons
