Our Parish Café, located in the School Annex on Driggs Ave., is officially open for business. On Saturday night, November 6, the café had its modestly attended opening. At 7:00 PM Father Jaroslaw celebrated a Mass for the volunteers who worked on the renovation as well as those who contributed their talents and financial support to make the café a reality. After Mass the volunteers themselves prepared a small reception at the café in honor of the grand opening. Father Pastor expressed his sincere appreciation and delight at the fruitful completion of the project which took weeks to complete owing to the tireless efforts of the small dedicated group of volunteers. Subsequently, Father Jaroslaw said a prayer and blessed the café.
On Sunday morning, the café officially opened its doors to anyone who attends Sunday Mass and wishes to partake in a cup of coffee or tea with their fellow parishioners. Our hope is that there will be a regular flow of interested faithful who will assemble at the café and exchange thoughts and ideas over a hot cup of flavorful and aromatic coffee.
Thanks to the dedication of these volunteers, a classroom in the school annex has been converted and no longer resembles its original appearance. The chalkboard is gone. The walls and windows have been repainted. The floor has been fully renovated. The walls are decorated by original paintings with their very own unique style. The transformation has resulted in producing a clean and attractive meeting place. Therefore, we invite everyone to come and enjoy a cup of coffee, tea or juice along with a homemade baked good or two, every Sunday between the hours of 9:30 AM and 2:30 PM!
