St. John's was founded in 1935 to serve the spiritual needs of the many Ukrainian immigrants who had settled in Oshawa. The parish grew after World War II, receiving many people from Ukraine and other eastern european countries who found shelter in Canada. Our parish currently is home to the children and grand-children of these immigrants, as well as converts and Orthodox faithful of many different ethnic backgrounds. Our services are conducted in both Ukrainian and English, and we thank God for our excellent choir, altar servers, "Holy Protection" sisterhood, men's brotherhood, and vibrant youth group. We are also very proud of our "Odessa" Ukrainian Dance Group, which performs all over Canada.
We serve the Divine Liturgy (in Ukrainian and English) on Sundays at 10 AM, and on Feast Days at 9:30 AM.
Great Vespers is served (primarily in English) on Saturdays at 5 PM, and on the eve of Feasts at 6:30 PM.
We look forward to welcoming you!
