We have begun classes for our Catechism School Youth. We thank our teachers, parents and Catechism School supervisors, Georgia Garay and Christina Donigian for their love and dedication in order to have our Youth return to learning about our Lord, Jesus Christ and for sharing their Faith with one another and for the needed fellowship that we all miss. Please visit the Catechism School page on the www.agoc.us
website for the registration form, Covid protocol and more details at: https://www.agoc.us/youth-ministries/catechism-school
Light-a-Candle: We are now pleased to offer AGOC parishioners the option to light a Narthex candle or altar candle when you are unable to attend in-person services. Should you wish to light a candle, a member of the Parish Council will be happy to do so for you during the current or next services. Please visit our website homepage at www.agoc.us to use our latest Light-a-Candle feature.
Make New Friends the Old-Fashioned Way: Please consider joining the pen pal initiative which was brought to us by the National Philoptochos. Children of all ages (3-18), please consider connecting to someone elderly or homebound the old fashioned way (via snail mail). You can draw a picture, write a note and ask a question. This will hopefully be the beginning of a new friendship, a learning opportunity and a moment to experience true empathy and grace. Please contact Michaele Giannoutsos at firstname.lastname@example.org to be connected with a member of our parish! Thank you and looking forward to hearing how much happiness this brings to both the one who sends the letter and the one that receives it.
