2020 Christmas Carol CD from St. Athanasius Parish


This is the title of the 2020 Christmas Carol CD from St. Athanasius Parish, Regina, SK. – from deep in our hearts, to your homes!

Enjoy traditional Ukrainian Christmas Carols sung in both Ukrainian and English!

Voices apart – voices together – join with us in your own homes in the carolling!  Let’s be together in Spirit this Holy Season!

Some of the members of St. Athanasius Parish Choir joined their voices for this project. First, we recorded separately because of pandemic protocols. Then our voices were mixed to produce a Christmas Carol CD that we hope you will enjoy for years to come!

We felt compelled in this pandemic year to try to pursue something uplifting for the hearts of our Parish (and District) families. Thank you all, especially at Christmas, for continued support of our Parish Community!

It’s been difficult to stay connected, hopeful and vibrant during these unexpected months of social and communal isolation and upended familiar routines. Our Parish has been blessed in live streaming all services since March 22, 2020 – the week when everything suddenly changed. St. A’s continues to appreciate the support and involvement of many people through generous donations; through expertise, time and courage; and with continued views and encouragement of us who have been tasked with moving us through the challenges.

Every one of us waits for the return of large gatherings, joyful noise, full choirs, many children in the Church, and hugs!

While we wait – just as we wait for the incarnation of the Christ Child – we remain committed in Faith, and with hope for the restoration of the world to much greater health and spiritual balance.

We wish you Christmas Blessings, and a 2021 that is Safe & Peaceful for you and all your loved ones!

Our intention is to provide each Parish household a CD as our gift to you.

We have been able to secure another shipment of CD’s.  They should arrive by late December 2020 or early January 2021, before January 7.  For those of you interested, please contact us at vasyltymishak@gmail.com .  The cost of the CD at our parish is a donation of your ability and desire.  Mostly we hope this will bringing Peace and Joy of this Christmas Season to you and your family and friends.
