On December 15, 2005, at the recommendation of the Basilian Provincial Superior, Metropolitan Michael Bzdel, CSsR appointed Father Isidore Dziadyk, OSBM as Parish Priest of St. Nicholas Parish. Father Isidore has served for thirty-six years in Winnipeg and continues his priestly ministry as Pastor. We support him wholeheartedly and pray for his spiritual and physical well-being.
Father Athanasius McVay, as a member of the Basilian Order, has been granted permission from the Apostolic See to serve outside the Order's Community for three years. He will exercise his priestly ministry in the Apostolic Exarchate for Ukrainian Catholics in Great Britain and work towards the completion of his doctorate in Church History. We thank him for his five years of service among us and wish him well in all his endeavors.
A farewell reception for Fr. McVay will be held on Thursday, December 22, at 7:00 pm, in the Parish Hall.
