CALL FOR CONVENTION

     Pursuant to Sec.7.02 of the First Catholic Slovak Union Bylaws, on behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to issue a call for the quadrennial 50th general Convention of the First Catholic Slovak Union of the United States and Canada to be held in Philadelphia, PA from August 23rd through the 27th, 2014, at the Sheraton Downtown Hotel.

     Pursuant to Sec.11.06 of the Bylaws the site was determined by the Executive Committee and approved unanimously by the Board at its June 29, 2013 regular quarterly meeting.

     The city of Philadelphia is the home of the merged Sts. Agnes & John Slovak Catholic Church and First Catholic Slovak Union Branch 55. This will be only the second Convention held in Philadelphia since the founding of the Society. The other was held in 1967, 47 years ago.

     In addition to St. Agnes, the Philadelphia Archdiocese once included the following parishes who were founded as Slovak Catholic Churches or who had a majority of Slovak parishioners:

St. Andrew in Catasauqua, St. Ann in Emmaus, Assumption of B.V.M. in Northampton, Sts. Cyril & Methodius in Bethlehem, Sts. Cyril & Methodius in Coaldale, Sts. Cyril & Methodius in Reading, St. Gabriel in Stowe, Holy Trinity in Egypt, Immaculate Conception in Nesquehoning, Immaculate Conception in St. Clair, St. Mary in McAdoo, St. Mary in Mahanoy City, St. Michael the Archangel in Lansford, Sacred Heart in Palmerton, Our Lady of Sorrow in Bridgeport, Sacred Heart in Phoenixville, and St. Stephen in Shenandoah.

     Many of these parishes were founded by leaders active in our Jednota. Some of these parishes have since closed or been merged with other parishes.

     I urge you to take some time as you browse the internet to look up the parishes as some have very detailed stories about their founding and history.

     Some people wonder how we pick a Convention site. First, Sec. 11.06 of the Bylaws requires that the Convention must be held in a state wherein the First Catholic Slovak Union has a subordinate branch. The Home Office solicited proposals from more than 30 hotels that met the criteria, stretching from Illinois to the East Cost. The criteria included necessary hotel rooms, adequate meeting and dining space, breakout rooms, parking, airline flights and room and food costs, etc. The responses reduced the number of options.

     Members of the Executive Committee visited nine hotels in three different locations. After reviewing the locations the Committee selected the Philadelphia Sheraton with Board approval.

     We will be hard at work to make this the 50th Convention of the First Catholic Slovak Union fruitful for the Society and a very pleasant experience for the Delegates. Click here for more information.
