Holy Ghost Ukrainian Catholic Parish

“Mnohaya lita! Celebrating 100 Years of Ukrainian Faith in Cape Breton” is an exhibit honouring the centenary of the Holy Ghost Ukrainian Catholic Parish in Sydney, Nova Scotia. An in situ exhibit is installed and open to the public, February 2nd through November 17th 2012, at the Cape Breton Centre for Heritage and Science (The Lyceum), 225 George Street, Sydney.

The website I made features a ‘virtual exhibit’, with photography by Corey Katz.

The exhibit was curated by Dr. Marcia Ostashewski, a postdoc fellow in CBU’s department of History & Culture; and the creative director (who designed the banner on the website) was Darene Roma Yavorsky of The Word & Image Studio.

My dad grew up in the Pier, and his first school experience was a kindergarten operated from the basement of Holy Ghost Church by local Ukrainian nuns. In this picture he’s front-row-left.
