Candlelight vigil being held in Kelowna to commemorate 2nd anniversary of Ukraine war

It has been two years since Russia invaded Ukraine, and to mark the solemn anniversary, vigils are being held across the world, including the Central Okanagan.

In Kelowna, a candlelight vigil is planned to take place tonight at the St. Peter and Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church at 1935 Barlee Rd.

The event is put together by the Kelowna Stands with Ukraine group and will start with a memorial church service at 3:30 pm.

Following the service, attendees will begin gathering for the vigil at 5 pm, with candles available by donation.

The vigil will get underway 30 minutes later and run for an hour before a dinner will take place also by donation.

“We invite everyone to come together in peace to commemorate Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine and honour the memory of fallen heroes and civilians of Ukraine,” reads a social media post by the group.

Donations can be e-transferred by using ukrainekelowna@gmail.com.
