60 delegates from Ukraine will visit North Melbourne Cathedral

On Sunday 24th February 2019 North Melbourne Cathedral Parish will have 60 delegates from Ukraine, from the Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU), celebrating and praying with us at the 9.30 am Divine Liturgy.

We encourage parishioners to wear their embroidered, Ukrainian shirts and blouses to this liturgy.

After the Liturgy lets make our visitors welcome by joining them for a cuppa upstairs before going on to the Fundraising Dinner at Melrose Reception.

This is a good opportunity for those parishioners not going on to the dinner to welcome our guests and to have a chat.

Want to help students in Lviv?

Parishioners wishing to go to the fundraising Dinner we encourage you to book your tickets as soon as possible and support a most worthy cause.
