Assembly in support of Majdan –Ukraine

 

This year has been a very challenging year for our relatives and ancestors in Ukraine standing up for freedom of speech and democracy. In support of this, Ukrainians all over the world are concerned and wanting to offer their help.
 

The JCS school community gathered on Friday February 28, 2014 for an assembly to offer their support and to show solidarity with Ukraine.  Our guest speaker – Ms. Marijka Melnyk shared some of her stories and photos from her recent visit to the majdan.  Fr. Kachur spoke about the need for a peaceful resolution to the conflict. We all prayed together for peace.  The students prepared banners with messages of peace, decorated candles to remember our fallen heroes and artfully creative doves holding messages for peace for all.

The highlight of the assembly was our chant at the very end – 

 Україна – Ми з Вами!

 

Our school was able to raise over $4300. 00 dollars to help those on the frontlines of the majdan.

We thank KONTAKT Ukrainian T.V. for filming this special event at our school.
