From Your Pastor:
Dear Parishioners and Friends,
So many of you have called, some not getting through because of the lines being busy - so many e-mails as well - I haven't been able to keep up with them. Please forgive my delay in responding - I intend to begin doing so again in the morning. But the overwhelming sentiment I am getting is one of grief and this is of concern to me - please don't cry, because if you do, so will I…. Our beautiful church building is gone - all that is left is the memory of almost 19 years of worship, celebration and community. This will have to do until we rebuild.
Tell your children, the church will be rebuilt - They will light candles and kiss icons in it again - and they will go around it again in procession and run around it again with water balloons and super soakers. Tell them, when they get married, there will be a new building for them. To put things in perspective, my middle sister, Orysia, called me this evening. She told me that our youngest, Irene, called our oldest, Olga, saying hysterically: "Have you heard about Roman?" "He died?" "No - his church burned down!" "Thank God!" Let us indeed thank God - we still have each other - walls can be and will be rebuilt, but loved ones are irreplaceable! Let's all stay well - there is much for us to look forward to! Counting my blessings,
A terrible fire destroyed the St. Elias the Apostle Ukrainian Catholic Church.
To Father Roman and the Congregation:
Norval Churches - Norval Presbyterian, St. Paul's Anglican and Norval United - and the Norval Community Association will help in any way we possibly could.
