THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the celebration of my 25th Anniversary of Ordination.  Thank you to the clergy, who concelebrated the Divine Liturgy, the choir, our Church Societies and my wonderful parishioners. Also, thank you to all those who worked to make the reception a success. You all helped to make the day a truly memorable occasion, one which I will cherish in my heart forever. Fr. Iura Godenciuc
