Pray for St Elias Ukrainian Catholic Church in Brampton, Ontario (Update)

City News Toronto reports that a church we have featured many times on NLM, the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church of St Elias the Prophet in Brampton, Ontario, has been almost completely destroyed by a fire which broke out early in the morning. As of roughly 10:30 a.m. local time, no injuries are reported, but a photograph on the City News Toronto website shows the building reduced to a skeleton. This is a terrible thing to happen any time, but most especially when the Church is so close to the magnificent ceremonies of Holy Week and Easter. Please remember the parishioners of St Elias, and their pastor, Fr. Roman Galadza, in your prayers!
