Prairie Partners (Bohdan, Jane and Andrea Popowich) took in
Fr. Vasyl and Fr. Bryan for supper, stories ... well, food
for body and soul as the sun set on Foam Lake. Andrea is planning
to travel to Sydney, Australia with a group of Ukrainian Catholics
from across Canada.
The Ryczaks offered a nice warm meal for Fr. Bryan as the
icon traveled through Theodore, SK.
St. Michael's School hosted the icons in their gymnasium while
Fr. Bryan spoke about World Youth Day.
Children from the Student's Council held the WYD icons as
well as displaying the handkerchief from WYD 2002 held in
Toronto. The cross on the table was blessed by Pope John-Paul
II at the closing mass of WYD 2002 and is used in the school
The WYD icons were carried around St. Michael's School yard
to begin their participation in PACE as Virtual Pilgrims.
The icon was also taken to the Schools of Christ The Teacher
Catholic School Division. At St. Theodore, the school body
gathered to hear about the WYD icon, about how blessed we
are to have the school we attend, and the web page paceyourself.ca.
They also learned how they can become Virtual Pilgrims by
participating in sending the WYD icon overseas to Sydney.
