2018 Ukrainian Day the Park World Youth Day Fundraiser
[submitted by Olena Simko]
The Ukrainian Catholic Youth and Yong Adults held a fundraiser at the 2018 Ukrainian Day in the Park on Saturday, August 25 in Saskatoon, to raise funds for the pilgrims that are attending World Youth Day in Panama in January 2019.
They sold popcorn, slushies, as well as delicious creped(made with love by the Sisters of St. Joseph).
The youth also ran a Kids Tent with “hands-on” activities where children could decorate cookies, paint magnets, have their hair braided, and where taught how to make traditional Ukrainian wrap dolls.
This event would not have been possible without all the support and time of our Ukrainian Catholic Youth and Young Adults as well as a big thanks to the UCWLC from Dormition of the Mother of God and Ss. Peter & Paul Parishes, and to the Sisters of St. Joseph. You rock! – Olena Simko
