Week of 6/23/2024       

Trapeza for this Sunday, 6/23/2024, will be potluck

Setup/Cleanup for Sunday Trapeza: Mary T., Shirlee, and Tanya J.

A Youth Group Educational Program will take place after trapeza this Sunday, 6/23/2024.

Next Week (6/23-6/30) is Fast-Free as we continue to celebrate the Feast. The Apostle’s Fast will begin on Monday, July 1.

An Orthodoxy 101 Class & Special “Pot Luck Cookout” will be held this Wednesday, 6/26/2024. We’re going to begin with our usual Akathist in church, which will start a little earlier than usual at 5:30 PM, as we’ve made plans for a “Pot-Luck Cookout” trapeza to take place during & after the class. It’s something a little special to celebrate the Feast of Pentecost. Since the day is fast-free, please bring any cookout-type food items to share. For convenience we’ve set up a “SignUpGenius” page to make it easier to determine what to bring. You can access the page by clicking HERE. Please join us, and bring a friend!

Annual Russian Festival Preparation - Preparations are underway for our Annual Russian Festival, which will be held on Saturday, October 5, 2024. The festival is the parish’s major fundraiser for the year, and the revenue that we receive from it has a significant impact upon the financial health of the parish. There are going to plenty of tasks that need to be accomplished within the next few months and on the day of the festival. I strongly encourage everyone in the parish to become involved so that the event will continue to be as successful as it has always been. If you would like more information, please see Mary T.

In Christ,

Fr. Stephen
