CHURCH COUNCIL: Future fund raising projects for the benefit of our Church were discussed at the Church Council Meeting on Tuesday, January 25th. The following have been selected for these projects: A Piggie Dinner on Thursday, March 24, 2011 ~ A Pyrohi Project April 11 -12th ~ May 15th will be our Parish Family Sviachene (Easter Dinner). ~ In May we will have a Lottery ticket sale. Arrangements are also in the process of having the League of Ukrainian Catholics having their Craft Sale in conjunction with our turn for the Deanery Stations of the Cross on Sunday, April 3, 2011. All Projects are in need of help. Please, if you haven’t helped before try to get involved for the interest of your Parish. There is always a job for someone and one that will suit you. So, why not give it a shot and maybe you will feel better by helping your Parish. It would be very appreciative of donations for all the projects such as the ingredients of all sorts or monetary.
