Trembowla Celebration – Cross of Freedom

Trembowla Celebration – Cross of Freedom

Details and Program TBA. Check back here for updates!

Originally a wooden cross was built at the site to commemorate the pioneers’ freedom in a new land. Today, a granite cross stands in its place to mark the first Cross of Freedom in Canada, in addition to monuments, pioneer homes, and Trembowla School. A grotto was erected in 2002 to honour Nykyta Budka, the first Ukrainian Catholic Bishop in Canada. An annual Moleben Service Honouring Pioneers is held there each August on the Sunday of Canada’s National Ukrainian Festival.
