On March 25, 2014, the University of Saskatchewan Ukrainian Students Association in cooperation with the PCUH hosted their annual campus-wide pysanka workshop. The pysanka is a rich cultural tradition embedded in Ukrainian culture, even pre-dating Christianity. The Ukrainian Students Association’s goal is to strengthen students’ ties to their Ukrainian heritage, as well as opening the door to anyone else who is interested.
This year’s event was a great success, with 28 people in attendance, including students from Ukraine, students wanting to embrace their Ukrainian roots and enthusiastic newcomers. Admission was by donation: the proceeds are going to Ukrainian Social Services, which financially assists those who have been affected by the very recent Euromaidan events.
