The Tragedy of St. Elias' Church

As most of you know, St. Elias' Ukrainian Catholic Church in Brampton burnt down the other day. You can help in the rebuilding effort of this holy site through Canada Helps.

  1. Any information on why this church burned down? I wonder if it had anything to do with what is going on in the Ukraine...?

My assumption is that it has something to do with another socio-political factor. I am writing on this for LifeSiteNews, so I will be digging into it. Check LifeSite soon for my findings...
