Dear CT State Ukrainian Day Committee Members & Clergy:
The first meeting for the 50th CT State Ukrainian Day Festival will be held on Monday, May 22, 2017 beginning at 6:30PM. His Excellency, Bishop Paul, will be in attendance.
The meeting will be hosted by:
SS Peter & Paul Ukrainian Catholic Church
105 Clifton Ave.
Refreshments will be served before the actual meeting.
Because of time restraints and conflicts, the committee could not schedule a final meeting of the 49th Festival and distribution of proceeds. Therefore, at this meeting we will be providing the final report for last year’s festival, as well as voting and presenting the distributions.
We hope that everyone can make this very important meeting. Everybody is welcome to attend, so please invite others from your parish to join for this meeting especially those who contributed to last year’s festival by volunteering that day and/or preparing food for the event. New members and ideas are always welcome.
Save the Date: Sunday, September 10, 2017 – 50th CT State Ukrainian Day Festival
We ask all clergy to please make the announcement about the meeting and 50th Festival in your parish bulletin and during liturgies.
Sincerely Yours In Christ
Donald K. Horbaty
