2012 Annual Fundraising Dinner

The IHMS Annual Fund Raising Dinner was held at the Holy Eucharist Parish Centre on March 10th. This year’s special guest was His Grace, Most Reverend Stefan Soroka, Metropolitan for Ukrainian Catholics in USA. The IHMS community would like to thank everyone who attended, volunteered and organized this tremendously successful event. Special thanks to the many sponsors who gave so generously to our school and capital campaign. God bless you all.
