News and Announcements
NATIVITY FOOD PANTRY Many people have asked if they can help our parishioners in this time of need with food donations. We have decided to collect a few specific items that may be hard to find or may be needed. A new pantry cupboard is here! Help us fill it up. Suggested pantry items:
Canned soups, cereals, pasta/sauce, Mac and Cheese (the kind that doesn't require milk and butter), Toilet paper, Paper towels, soap.
If you need assistance feel free to reach out to Father Nick, the church office or Parish Council President, Pete Tsaprazis at any time. Your needs will be kept confidential.
THE BLESSING OF OUR HOMES AT EPIPHANY As is customary, following the days of the Epiphany feast, the priest visits the homes of parishioners to perform the Agiasmo and to bless the family. If you wish to have your home blessed, please pick up a form at the candlestand, print the attached form or contact the church office to schedule a visit. If you are uncomfortable with Father Nick entering your home during the pandemic, he will come, greet you at your door, and bless the exterior of your home.
Keep track of Feasts, Fasts, Saints and Celebrations in 2021- Pick up a new Ecclesiastical Calendar. Thanks to Charles R. Step Funeral Home for sponsoring them for Nativity.
