Ukrainian Catholic Council of the Edmonton Eparchy: Centralia

The Ukrainian Catholic Council functions at the Eparchial (Provincial) level. Its Executive, which consists of President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer, is elected at the Eparchial Conventions which are held biannually. The Executive works together with the Eparchial Presidents of the Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League of Canada, Ukrainian Catholic Brotherhood of Canada, and the Ukrainian Catholic Youth of Canada, who become Constituent members of the Council, with our Bishop as the Spiritual Advisor and Director. Meetings are held in the Chancery Office as often as deemed necessary.

The primary function and responsibility of the Ukrainian Catholic Council is to represent Ukrainian Catholic lay organizations within the Eparchy. With the advise and encouragement of our Bishop, the Council promotes appropriate activities and functions. It is the umbrella organization that works in conjunction with the lay organizations within the Ukrainian Catholic Church at the Eparchial level.

The Ukrainian Catholic Council coordinates functions such as:

Eparchial Conventions
Annual Celebrations honoring our Bishop
Eparchial Celebrations as the need arises
