Our sincerest wishes to our pastor, Fr John Tataryn, on the occasion of his 75-th birthday! When the full record of what was achieved during these 75th years will be written, it will be an amazing story. From the founding of our parish on La Rose Avenue to the founding of the missionary outreach facility in downtown Toronto, now known as St John the Compassionate. We are aware that these achievements were hard won – with "blood, sweat and tears"! Big achievements require big sacrifices. We thank you for your willingness to offer this personal sacrifice over these past many years – for the Glory of God and for the benefit of God's people. May the Good Lord reward you with many happy years!
