Oakville Croats

Croatian Coat of Arms The Croatian people started leaving their native land, Croatia and Bosnia and Hercegovina, quite early in their history and settled all over the world. When leaving their homes, much like the Old Israelis in the Ark of the Covenant, they packed their suitcases with everything that makes them Croatian and Catholic. Even far from their homeland and their people, Croats remain faithful to their religion and their country. Some arrived to the land of Huron's to the shores of a big lake called Ontario, to the "Lake of Lights", as they say, looking for their own brighter future. About twenty five years ago, some of them started to settle in Oakville. They brought their belongings and unpacked: gusle, diple, sargije, sopile, frule, gajde, lijarice and zvizduke, their national costumes and their opanke. They stayed, started to grow and grew to today's four hundred and fifty families. On July 9th, 1976 the Most Reverend Paul Reading, bishop of Hamilton issues a decree to found the Croatian Parish in Oakville.
