On May 4, 2018 a memorial mass was held at Holy Cross Ukrainian Catholic Church in Astoria to honor the memory of SHAREing & CAREing friends. The special liturgy was led by Father Cyril Iszezuck, OSBM and Father Bernard Panczuk, OSBM and was followed by individual blessings by Fr. Cyril.
The inspiring event was accompanied by a delicious buffet that included homemade pierogies, coffee and cake. Post-event, Ukrainian dancers in traditional costumes as well as two singers entertained and charmed attendees with their performances.
Special thanks to Holy Cross Ukrainian Catholic Church; Father Cyril Iszezuck, OSBM; Father Bernard Panczuk, OSBM; New York State Senator Michael Gianaris; Council Member Costa Constantinides; and Assembly Member Aravella Simotas.
We are deeply grateful to the Self Reliance New York Federal Credit Union for sponsoring this meaningful liturgy for our cherished friends. Their memories will live with us forever!
