Вічная Пам’ять Друг Осип Ковальський


The National Executive of CYM in Australia joins in mourning the loss of Osyp Kowalsky and sends our deepest condolences to the family.

Osyp Kowalsky was an active member of the Ukrainian community in Australia, in particular, as a tireless supporter and member of CYM Sydney for which he received the prestigious award of “Honorary Member of the Ukrainian Youth Association of Australia”.

Osyp Kowalsky served on the CYM Sydney Uprava, was a member of OUN, a member of the Ukrainian Hromada in Cabramatta-Fairfield, long time chair of the Seniors Club at St. Andrew’s Ukrainian Catholic Church, a Director of the Ukrainian Cultural and Social Club and a supporter of the Ukrainian Women’s League – Olga Basarab branch.

During his years, Osyp Kowalsky worked across many facets of CYM, helping raise funds for the building of the Dim Molodi in Sydney, assisting in its construction and the acquisition of the CYM Sydney campgrounds.

This year, Osyp Kowalsky also turned 100 years old. He will always be fondly remembered for his warm nature and disciplined work ethic. We bow our heads before him in respect and gratitude for his mentoring, friendship and work.

We express our heartfelt condolences to the family and pray that Druh Kowalsky is now reunited with his loving wife, rewarded for all his goodness with eternal and heavenly peace!
