Protection of the Mother of God, Oshawa

Success! A great day. We started off with something completely different—Morning Praise led by Pastor Jamie Legault of My Father’s House Christian Fellowship. Bishop John blessed our new parish sign, and then celebrated the Divine Liturgy, after which we feasted in the Parish Hall. We were graced by the presence of Bishop John, Fr. Andrew Kormanik, Fr. Jozef Mucha, Fr. Ron Comeau, and Fr. John Fetsco. Irena Revtak and her crew, Irena and Gabriella, put on an amazing feast with the addition of many ladies who contributed their baking for our fabulous dessert section. For the finale, Lucia Williams organized a raffle with some great donations from the community: an Israeli art school, the Slovak Community Circle of Oshawa, Luba Henderson, Sheridan Nurseries, Scholar’s Choice. The prize table was also adorned with some of Lucy’s own sladkosti and children’s gifts for the hordes of kiddies. The proceeds from the ticket sales and the raffle, combined with our summer Rummage Sale, have given us a great beginning towards paying for the new sign. We’re growing in Oshawa! Come for a visit, check out our new sign, and meet our new parishioners. We’d love to see you some Sunday morning for Morning Praise at 9:30 and the Divine Liturgy at 10:00.
