Welcome to the Family and Life Office of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Saskatoon website.  We hope you enjoy the pages and posts focused  on our Ukrainian Catholic beliefs and practices…

To promote and defend:

conception until natural death,

The sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman, as a call to a ‘vocation of love’ which is ‘free, total, faithful and fruitful’,

The family as the

Since the methods of NFP respect the love-giving (unitive) and life-giving (procreative) nature of the conjugal act, they support God’s design for married love!  To visit our NFP info page click here.
