Congregational letter from Rev. Shelagh MacKinnon, April 21

Our thoughts are with Father Yuriy Vyshnevskyy and his family from our neighbour St. Nicholas the Wonderworker Ukrainian Catholic Church. The family's home on Caledonia Avenue was destroyed by fire Wednesday, April 20, in what police suspect was arson.

The First Met Board has made a financial donation to the congregation of St. Nicholas for pastor Yuriy and family. Rev. Shelagh MacKinnon delivered two prayer shawls Thursday as reminder of the link we share to the Holy One.

You can help support the family with financial donations through St. Nicholas church's Canada Helps online donation page. Click the highlighted link and please specify that donations are meant for the Vyshnevskyy family.

You can also make a donation through First Met, marking it to be sent to St. Nicholas the Wonderworker.
