This year, St. Mary’s Ukrainian Catholic Church marks the 45th Anniversary of its annual Yarmarok - Christmas Market.
The success of this annual event is wholly attributed to the dedication and hard work of our volunteers and the generosity of our sponsors. This has allowed us to continuously provide a quality event that features great entertainment and delicious Ukrainian food, drawing thousands of visitors from the GTA and beyond.
During Yarmarok we exhibit our beautiful Ukrainian traditions: melodious singing, exciting dances, intricate embroidery, ceramics and Easter eggs, and more. We are proud to have our parish’s own “Barvinok” dance ensemble who’s proficient dancing is a shining example of our Ukrainian traditions being maintained and nurtured for future generations. They have gained fame across Canada and the United States, and have danced to great accolades in Ukraine. Of course we cannot omit mention of our bandura youth capela “Zoloti Struny” who’s golden strings and angelic voices have echoed in many corners of Ukraine, Poland and Canada to ovations of applause. Add to this so many other talented parishioners young and old - duets, groups and soloists and even special guests.
You will find the shows enthralling, the arts and crafts affordable, the food delicious and the people open and friendly!
Our annual Yarmarok gives us an opportunity to share our culture and our heritage with guests from other cultural backgrounds.
With open Ukrainian hearts we welcome our guests from many different cultural backgrounds.
We welcome you with brotherly hospitality and Christian love.
Our deep gratitude and compliments to all who work so hard every year to prepare and bring Yarmarok to fruition.
