The “Slovaks in Canada’ project continues to grow. The current number of Slovak Canadian organizations that have joined the Slovaks in Canada project has grown to 40 ! From Windsor, Sts. Cyril and Methodius Slovak Catholic Church under the leadership of Father Jan Moravsky S.J., has already contributed valuable books as well as photographic materials. In addition from Windsor, the Slovak Domovina Dancers, has also joined in the Slovaks in Canada initiative.
Mr. Brano Galat has announced, on behalf of the Canadian Slovak League, that the following CSL branches have also joined in their sponsorship. They encompass: 1st District Assembly of CSL as well as Branches 1 -Winnipeg, Br. 6 -Oshawa, Br. 34 -Kitchener, as well as the Montréal Men’s Branch No. 2 and Montreal Ladies Branch No. 4.
The Easter holidays are one of the most celebrated events of the year, when Slovaks get together to celebrate the rising of Jesus Christ and to spend time with their families. In preparation for this occasion, the Organizing Committee of the “Slovaks in Canada” Exhibit has released its first brochure, which invites everyone to participate in this monumental project. In total, over 5000 copies of the brochure have been published and distributed in time for the Easter holidays, in order to help raise awareness throughout the community.
