Opening Day Picnic

Dear members and friends of Slovenska Pristava, after a long winter and a short spring, we will once again get together for the first picnic this Memorial Day weekend on Sunday, May 24th. Holy Mass will be celebrated by Father John Kumse at 12:30 pm. After Mass, you can treat yourself to some homemade food from the famous Pristava kitchen or delicious grilled “čevapčiči”.


A Year of Remembrance and Celebrations

Life for all Slovenians changed, as they knew it with the horrendous events of May 1945 and the days, months, and years that followed. Those days culminated with the torture and murder of thousands, the separation of families, the theft of land and livelihood, and the loss of home and homeland. For the families who stayed behind, Slovenia was wrapped in poverty, fear, and abuse. For those living in the international refugee camps came the realization that most would not be going home again and the resolution to begin life anew.
