Announcements

We will beginning our Church School program for 2011-2012 on Sunday, August 14th. We will be running three regular classes this year, in addition to the year-round preschool class during the Sunday homily. All three classes will take place at approximately 12:45 on Sunday afternoons, after we have had some time to get something to eat.

1. The Elementary School class, for children in grades 1-4 or so, will meet on the 1st, 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. Matushka Marina will teach this class again.
2. The Middle School class, for children in grades 5-8 or so, will meet on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month. Dn. Nicholas will teach.
3. The class for adults and teens will meet on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. It will focus on the fundamentals of the faith — the Creed and the Lord's Prayer — and their meaning for our daily lives as Orthodox Christians. Dn. Nicholas and Fr. Seraphim will teach.

 



If you can give a few hours of our time to help care for God's house, please contact Matushka Marina, Reader David or Deacon Nicholas and we'll tell you how you can help.

We have a list of things our parish needs. If you or somebody you know wish to supply one of these items, please contact us.
