Abstract
 
Description
When Ukrainians began immigrating to Canada in the late 1800s, most were farmers seeking a better way of life. Of the few possessions they brought with them, none was more precious than their faith. The newcomers went to great lengths to ensure that this faith was passed on to their children and grandchildren.

More than a hundred years have passed. As the Ukrainian Catholic Church in Canada meets the challenges of a new millennium, it does so with a sense of renewal, of reverence for its rich spiritual heritage, of vibrant hope for the future. One aspect of this Church's renewal is the revision of its Particular Law in light of the Second Vatican Council and the newly promulgated Code of Cans of the Eastern Churches.

David Motiuk's study is a canonical and historical overview of the development of the Ukrainian Catholic Church in Canada, helping the growth of the first communities, the appointment of its first bishop, and the establishment of the Metropolitan See of Winnipeg. The author examines relations with the Latin Church, various decrees of Bishop Nykyta Budka, Bishop Basil Ladyka, and the Ukrainian Catholic Conference in Canada. He also explores the role played by the Ukrainian bishops from Canada in re-establishing synodal governance in the Ukrainian Catholic Church as a whole.
