"in the name of the whole Canadian Metropolinate, our great recognition and heartfelt thanks for Your great sacrifice and beneficial work for the good of Christ's Church and our Ukrainian people in Canada. (pp.43-45)
During the forty-seven years You have been in this country, You have shown Yourself to be, dear Father Jubilarian, not only a zealous missionary-priest who has fully dedicated himself to the salvation of souls, but also a recognized architect-builder, who has given our community in this country so many beautiful stylistic churches and other valuable church buildings.
We are all aware, first of all, of Your missionary pioneer work in the forests of Northern Alberta, where with great sacrifice You served as a shepherd of souls for the districts of Stry and Radway Centre. There it was necessary for you to travel hundreds of miles though [sic] forests and swamps, to carry spiritual comfort to our Ukrainian settlers and to organize their religious and cultural life.
Also known to us is Your difficult and extraordinarily valuable work as a shepherd of souls in the area of the Archdiocese of Winnipeg, (including) Your present parish, where You, dear Father Jubilarian, for thirty years have been their true spiritual father, a Ukrainian cultural leader, a sincere friend and constant advisor. Here (in Cook's Creek) the spirit of Your priesthood will abide forever. "(p.45)
