The Southern Alberta Mission Project

About the Project


WIth the changes in Clergy assignments completed in 2019 the project is currently not active.  We sincerely thank everyone who has support the project over the past 19 years. 

The Southern Alberta Mission Project was initially started in 2000 with the Ordination of Rev. Fr. Patrick Powalinsky, under St. Vladimir's Ukrainian Orthodox Congregation in Calgary.  Initially it served Lethbridge, Red Deer, Oyen and Cranbrook B.C. (a new mission congregation started because of the program.  The mission was taken over by the Orthodox Church of America (OCA), when the Southern Alberta Mission Project was on hiatus.).

Currently, because of the program, Holy Trinity in Lethbridge and Holy Trinity Mission in Red Deer are growing at a remarkable rate (mainly attributed to the project).  Membership to date in Red Deer has more than doubled in the last year!  With the project, these congregations hope to grow to a point where they can support their own priests.

St. Nicholas Ukrainian Orthodox Church was organized in 1999, and since its inception, has been under the pastoral leadership of five priests in that time (Rt. Rev. Fr. Mykola Sawchenko, Rev. Fr. Patrick Powalinsky, Rev. Fr. Mykhaylo Pozdyk, Rev. Fr. Volodymyr Bilous, and Rev. Fr. Timothy Chrapko). The Parish has grown from holding services in a funeral home to the Consecration of thier own building in 2016!  Also, many members gather for a "Vespers and Education Night" once a month.
