Local efforts can have an impact even on the other side of the globe.
St. Anthony of Padua Parish in Agassiz raised more than $9,500 for humanitarian efforts in war-ravaged Ukraine during a recent perogy and cabbage rolls fundraiser.
“This fundraiser was a HUGE success,” a church representative wrote on their website. “We are so thankful for everyone who help make it a success, the community and everyone who volunteered.”
St. Anthony has been a part of Agassiz’s history since 1913; the church is said to have received their first organ from Lewis Arthur Agassiz, for whom the townsite is named.
