Watch the history of this bishop’s extraordinary life in the TV documentary, “Steadfast and Faithful: A Martyr’s Journey,” which airs 6:30 p.m. ET, Wed., June 30 on the EWTN cable channel.
Blessed Vasyl Velychkovsky, C.Ss.R., is a Ukrainian bishop who spent years in a Soviet gulag because he refused to deny his faith, and whose body was found to be incorrupt almost 30 years after he was buried.
Beatified in 2001, the holy relics (a fully intact body) of Blessed Vasyl are enshrined at St. Joseph's Ukrainian Catholic Church in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Since the enshrinement, the Shrine has become a source of grace and blessing for many people.
