From Fr. Anthony
The Church's office hours are 9-5 Monday-Friday, and you can stop by to speak with the office staff any time during those hours. If you have a general Church-related question, you should speak with Susan Solo, who is in the office Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. If you need to meet with me, however, it's best to call first, as I may already be with another appointment, and am frequently called away to other visitations and appointments. If you prefer, I am happy to arrange a time in advance.
We ask that the doors of the Narthex be closed and no one enters the Church during the following portions of the service:
Epistle, Gospel, Sermon, Great Entrance, Creed, Consecration, and Lord's Prayer
Please be respectful of the prayer and attention of those who are in the Church as you enter.
When it is time for Holy Communion, please remain in your pews until the members of the Parish Council come to your pew to usher you forward by row. In this way, we can ensure that our approaching of the Sacred Mysteries will be accomplished in an appropriate and orderly manner.

We ask the young people of the parish to come and help with the many tasks involved during the Divine Liturgy each Sunday. The young men, as always, will help Father Anthony inside the altar, and we are asking the young women to serve in the Narthex and throughout the Church, to welcome parishioners and visitors, to manage the candles, and to otherwise assist the parish council. On particular dates, when we need to change the cloth covers for the icon stands and the altar, we ask the young people to come early, at 9:30 am, in order to change the cloths prior to the beginning of the Divine Liturgy. The next day for this will be today, December 8th, when we change the cloths to red in preparation for the Feast of the Lord's Nativity on December 25th. Please plan to come early - thank you!
