FATHER RADOSLAV LOJAN SERVES SLOVAK FAITHFUL

Slovak Catholics have long been present, but not sufficiently numerous to warrant a full-time priest as they do in other locales.

They have, however, gathered from time to time when the ministrations of a priest have been available to them, worshipping at other times and serving on committees and being involved in the parishes where they live.

For the last three and a half years, a graduate study in theology at St. Paul's University, Father Radoslav Lojan has served them at the major feasts and on a regular basis on alternating Sunday afternoons at 2 o'clock, making use of St. Hyacinth Church that serves the Polish Catholic faithful.

Last Sunday, I had the honour of presiding at their Mass and joining them for a celebration in the parish hall, delighting in their company and in the sweets (especially poppy-seed cake) afterwards. Some images from the occasion:
