– St. A’s and B’s Ultimate Youth is a joint parish youth program between St. Athanasius Ukrainian Catholic Parish and St. Basil’s
Ukrainian Catholic  Parish (the only Ukrainian Catholic Parishes in Regina)
– This organization is in union with the Ukrainian Catholic Youth of Canada (UCYC)
Meeting times:  Once or twice a month on Fridays from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
– We have a faith based group activity and recreational night for the youth in our parishes.  Theme:  “ALIVE IN CHRIST THROUGH OUR FAITH AND HERITAGE”Purpose:  A brief synopsis of the UCYC Constitution:- Under the patronage of St. Michael the Archangel
– Our purpose:  “To encourage and enable young people of our Ukrainian Catholic Christian community to share their gifts with their brothers and sisters in Christ supported in love by the community.”
– Goals of UCYC Ministry:
1) To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.- Youth ministry is comprehensive and seeks to respond to the total young person. Therefore it works to meet educational, physical, spiritual and social needs of young people.
– No one aspect of youth ministry is independent of others; they are all interdependent, which includes our youth, bishops, clergy, religious, parents, adults, and other community members which works in a collaboration, not fragmentation.2) To journey with youth to full responsibility and participation in the life, mission, and work of our faith community.- Young people are full members of the faith community here and now in the present.
– They are equal partners and should be fully involved in Church life and community life.
– Youth have talents that should be developed into the body of Christ and adults should help the youth enrich those talents.
