Children's dreams have come true!! This time Saint Nicholas came to the Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral in Ottawa. The UCSS Community Service together with the Orthodox Church of Ukraine organized a great holiday.


Traditional fairy-tale heroes led the children on a real historical journey, supplemented by games and contests. Theatrical action took place according to the author's script of Tetyana Fomina. Fairytale characters were played by creative volunteers: Kira Khrustalova, Nikita Zakharchenko, Maxim Hlushchenko, Inna Fomina, Olesya Popovych.


The children received exclusive gifts, including candies from Ukrainian manufacturers, handmade gingerbread and a full table, where the family communication of parents, children and new friends continued.
