December 2, 2018 was a historic day for our parish of the Holy Transfiguration. His Grace, Bishop Stephen ordained to the diaconate, Jaroslav (Jerry) Polischuk. Fr. Dn. Polischuk has spent his whole life in the parish. It was here that he and wife, Rosalie, raised their four children. After much prayer and discernment our new Deacon entered on the road towards ordination three years ago. In September, 2016 he was raised to the sub-deaconate and this past year he completed his final steps of preparation. The wonderful Divine Liturgy was a joyous day for all who gathered in prayer with our bishop, former pastor Fr. V. Yanishevsky and Fr. Myroslaw.
