More exciting news is coming from Windsor, Ontario, Canada! On Sunday, Mar 20, a lenten lunch was prepared in the basement of the Gračanica church after Holy Liturgy.
This event was a joint partnership between the Association of Serbian Student Philanthropists (ASSP) and Serbs for Serbs Canada’s members from Windsor. The ASSP group members: Petar Bratić, Maja Jelich, Danijela Jelich, Rosana Kulidžan, Ivana Čenić, Alec Mladenović, Marko Dobrich, Ana Joksić were there to help Dara Gidak, Alexandra Mirković, protinica Katarina Vranić and Đuja Kričkić who were the master chefs for this occasion.
Fr. Vladimir Vranić blessed the event. He is always very supportive and enthusiastic about youth initiatives. The lunch was well attended. Many parishioners enjoyed community gathering over a delicious meal. Sweet table was also very impressive. The amount of $3,190 was raised for charity organization Serbs for Serbs Canada in support of the impoverished Serbian families in the Balkans.
We would like to thank everyone for attending and contributing to this fundraising and social event. A special Thank you goes to the youngest boys and girls for setting up tables and helping their parents who worked hard in the kitchen.
Gračanica Serbian Orthodox Church in Windsor is blessed for having such a hardworking youth group. Their future is in good hands!
