Kashulon Fondation supports Priests

BRIDGEPORT—On behalf of the John & Ethel Kashulon Foundation, Board of Director member T.R. Rowe recently presented two checks to Bishop Frank Caggiano. The first was in the amount of $10,000 and will be used to support a diocesan seminarian-in-need, and the second was in the amount of $7,500 for the Queen of Clergy Retirement Home, in appreciation for all that newly-retired Monsignor Joseph Pekar did for Ethel and her parish of Sts. Cyril & Methodius over the 47 years he served as Pastor.

Ethel and John Kashulon were longtime members of Sts. Cyril & Methodius Parish in Bridgeport. The mission of the John and Ethel Kashulon Foundation is to improve people’s lives through the funding of programs whose mission and projects align with our three unified goals of enhancing Educational, Children’s and Cultural opportunities. At the presentation, Bishop Caggiano, on behalf of the entire diocese, expressed his deepest gratitude for the generosity of the Kashulon Foundation.
