Winter season is a special moment for the members of VMY Belorussia-Ukraine. This is a perfect opportunity for them to gather, do things and enjoy the cold weather together. Activities such as going to church and to hear and celebrate mass is shared by everyone.
Last Novermber 20, as winter season was about to start, the VMY group together with S. Ksenia Kornicel,DC and the Children of Mary decided to hold a Carnaval with various games, a lot of singing and dancing. This was held in Storozhynets at the Vice-Province of Stt. Cyril and Methodius. Everybody had a lot of fun and everyone went home happy.
Since snow is a big part of the season, the group decided to go out and enjoy the snow. Armed with their sleds and snow gears, they did not miss the opportunity to spend a great time together, laughing, playing and having fun.
