THANK YOU! DZIĘKUJĘ!
Our celebration to honour Fr. Mirek’s 25th Anniversary of Priestly Ordination was another in our successful parish events.
As we all know, each and every event requires a dedicated, hard-working group of people who spend many hours behind the scenes in preparing every detail from food, to decoration, to cleaning, to door prizes, etc. Our parish is blessed to have so many wonderful volunteers who step forward to make any event one to be remembered. Over the last few months, we have had three major events - our Easter Dinner combined with Fr.’s birthday, Deacon Gérard’s 10th Anniversary of Ordination, and last week we had Fr.’s 25th. This letter of gratitude covers all three of these most recent events in which people have worked so hard.
Big gratitude is extended to our exceptional cooks - Halina Baruk and Leokadia Garbowska who always prepare delicious meals. They have received compliments for their cooking from our local neighbours, and also from our friends from Toronto and Hamilton.
Many spend their time in the kitchen with the dishes, the setting up, and the cleaning of the hall, the selling of tickets, etc.
I would like to say “Thank You” to the following:
Iwona & Krzysztof Paprocki
Maria Ceran & Emilia Zerebecki
Denise Bourque & Tom Dillon
Paul & Maggie Moreau
Andy & Joyce Kukoly
Zibi & Marlena Pilarczyk
Teresa & Zdzisław Gronkiewicz
A very special thank you goes to Iwona Paprocki who donated many beautiful pieces of decoration (table cloths, napkins, seat covers, etc.) to our hall, and also for her help in decorating the hall.
Another special thank you goes to Helena Kuźma for baking a delicious dessert which was served last Sunday and enjoyed by everyone.
Thank you to all those who donated prizes for the draw which brought in an additional $400.00. We always have lots of fun with these raffles, especially when Fr. Mirek draws the lucky numbers.
Thank you to anyone who helped in any way with our celebration. And, of course, to those who participated by buying tickets to the dinner. Without your support we would not have had such success!
Many thanks and God’s Blessings
Fr. Mirek, OMI
