The John Paul II Foundation in the Pulaski Parade 2014
The first Sunday of October is known in the United States as the Polonia's feast. On that day, Poles and Americans with Polish background from the few East coast states gather together on the 5th Avenue in Manhattan, to pay tribute to the hero of two nations - Polish and American - Kazimerz Pułaski.
Sunday, October 5th, welcomed us with a beautiful, sunny weather and the entire 5th Avenue was flooded with white and red colors. In the 77th Pulaski Parade proudly marched various Polish organizations, businesses, parishioners from Polish churches, schools, students and science groups, representatives of Polish newspapers, radio stations, scouts, veterans, as well as firemen and policemen with Polish background. Honorable guests from Poland, among whom was the Honorable Marshall of this year's parade - Józef Kupny, archbishop of Wroclaw, were present. Archbishop Józef Kupny celebrated also the Holy Mass at the St. Patrick Cathedral, which always precedes every Polish Parade.
This year's parade was held under the following themes: Canonization of our Great Commemorate - John Paul II, 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, and the Battle of Monte Cassino.
- Year of thanksgiving for the canonization of St. John Paul II
