Other Upcoming Events / Announcements

Parish Potluck – Thursday, June 26th – 6:30pm – At Fr. Jonah’s House: Be sure to bring a Lenten dish since we are still in the Apostles Fast. One of the themes for this next potluck is the continuation of our charity brainstorming that we began before Great Lent. Just as a note: our ongoing potluck plan arrived at by popular request is to have bimonthly potlucks on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month. If you would be interested in hosting one of the potlucks, please let me know!

Parish Bulletins!: Thanks to Reader Seraphim (Picard), one of our newest parishioners, for taking on the labor of producing our new weekly bulletin. The bulletin is packed with *useful* information for the entire week, including the list of daily commemorations of saints, the readings for each day, helpful sermons/reflections taken from the Prologue or the Fathers, etc. Please get into the habit of taking the bulletin as you come into church on Sunday mornings as it also contains the variable troparia, etc. for the Sunday Liturgy, which will allow for more congregational participation in the Liturgy. The bulletin is an excellent resource to keep in your icon corner throughout the week as an aid to prayer.

Prison Ministry: We have begun corresponding with an inmate at acheter viagra Mt. Olive Correctional Complex who has expressed interest in the Orthodox Church. I encourage all of our parishioners to remember Thomas in your prayers, asking that our efforts will be fruitful and pleasing to God.

I hope to see you all for our upcoming services and events!

With much love in Christ our God,

Fr Jonah
