“Take Us Out to the Ball Game”
Every year Father Andriy Dudkevych, pastor of St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church in Passaic, NJ, treats the altar servers of the church to a fun-filled trip. This is done in gratitude for the boys’ dedication, devotion, and participation during liturgies, molebens, and all other church services. On Wednesday, June 12, 2013 the altar servers attended a NJ Jackals baseball game. During the game, Fr. Andriy treated the boys to cold drinks and ice cream. Some boys equipped with mitts caught foul balls, others were given free baseballs, and most had their picture taken with Jack the Jackal, the mascot. With the exception of some mild sunburn, an enjoyable afternoon was had by all!
