The Bishop Velychkovsky Martyr’s Shrine is the second Martyr’s Shrine in Canada, housing the holy relics of Blessed Bishop Vasyl Velychkovsky, a modern Ukrainian Catholic Martyr who was persecuted and tortured by the Soviet regime for remaining faithful to his church. The life of Blessed Vasyl, who was beatified in 2001, is depicted in the museum through artifacts, panels, and a short video. The church itself is filled with beautiful Byzantine icons, mosaics, and stained glass windows. Guided tours are available throughout the day for a maximum of 25 people per tour. Please use the front entrance of the church.
