Daniel & Margaret Buleza and Family

   When our family moved to Pittsburgh from New Jersey in 1961, the good people of St. John's (especially the choir) welcomed us with open arms and filled a big void in our lives. We shall always remember their kindness. We are certain that Dan's departed Mom and Dad, Mary and John Buleza Sr., look down with pride and joy on our new cathedral and Center. — Shining jewels in the treasury of our Byzantine Catholic heritage.

   Being a third generation member of St. John's Cathedral, I have fond memories of growing up in this area and attending St. John's School. I be longed to the Sodality, we had May Crownings, marched Good Friday and Holy Saturday, traveled to Mt. St. Macrina for Sodality retreats (we enjoyed ourselves — a No-No) but we did pray and observe silence. I made friends as a child in school and kept that friendship into adulthood. GOOD LUCK TO THE NEXT GENERATION AND THE NEXT AND THE NEXT at St. John's Cathedral.

Today, as our new church is dedicated we see the fruits of our labor as well as so many of our parish friends. We stand proud to have been a part of this great undertaking. May God bless all future generations of St. John's Cathedral as richly as He has blessed us.

   I would like to express my views about the new cathedral. It is an amazing grace. It has all the comfort and beauty. I walked in admiring the altars and paintings and as I looked up, I saw the most remarkable painting of Jesus. His beautiful eyes met mine, and no matter where you sit in church His eyes will meet yours. It is a miracle painting. Thank you Msgr. Procyk, and God bless you with a long healthy life.
