We invite all youth present to join us immediately following communion. Today we will be preparing for our presentation to commemorate the 25th of March which will occur today following liturgy.
Asteria dance practice today after church.
I am happy to announce that Miss Georgia Rapos has offered to assistant teach the Angels dance group this year! She will be teaching all practices as well as dancing with the Angels group on Saturday and Sunday of the festival.

The Angels will have practice every Sunday after church unless otherwise stated.
Thank you all and have a lovely weekend,

May 12 GREEK FESTIVAL
Of the many ways of supporting our Church, there are few which stand out as uniquely personal offerings of faith. The offering of Prosforo bread for the Divine Liturgy is one of them. We are thankful to the handful of ladies who have faithfully fulfilled this responsibility over the years and we invite more of our faithful - especially young families with children - to make this a part of their lives as well. Want to be added to our Prosforo list? Please see Maria Simeon.
Please make sure that Prosforo is in church before the start of the Orthros service on Sunday. Please write the date (or put a sticker with the date) on the plastic bags with the Prosforo. That way the oldest will be used first. Thank you for your help.
