Send Ottawa Singers to Parma!

A group of 13 singers from St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Shrine in Ottawa, Canada are planning on attending the first ever UGCC Conference of Liturgical Singing in Parma, Ohio! This conference, held on October 5-7, is an initiative of the UGCC Liturgical Commission and is aimed at advancing knowledge and helping to improve the quality of church singing within our churches around the world. 

This trip however, does come with costs. There are registration costs, accommodations, and travel. The majority of the participants are young students and children. And so, any funds raised through this campaign will be distributed evenly among all 13 participants in order to lighten the financial burden of this trip. The goal that is set will at the very least cover the registration fees for each participant. Anything above that will go towards accommodations and travel. 

So please help us all out in any possible way. We will be more than grateful with anything we receive. And if you cannot give anything, give your prayers for a safe journey and a fruitful and beneficial experience. This conference will not just help the individuals, but it will benefit the entire Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church! Thank you for your support!
