Update from Long Branch CYMK :)

June 18, 2017

This summer has been busy for all of our Long-Branch CYMKivtsi! Many of our Youth are travelling, some are working and attending summer courses. To start of the summer, our Toronto youth have participated in and helped out with our Eastern Eparchy Eparchial Family Celebration. CYMK diverted our young parishioners and their families with games, such as tug-of-war, soccer, and face-painting. We also helped clear up the tents, chairs, and grounds, after the successful full day of events. This celebration is an occasion we participate in annually and is a festivity our families and youth look forward too throughout our year, being devoted Ukrainian Orthodox Eastern Eparchy members.
