HELP NEEDED: On Monday, October 23 at 7 PM, the classroom area of the church center needs to be torn down and set-up with tables for the Bazaar. Men who own trucks, SUVs or vans are asked to come and help dismantle the classrooms, bring over the tables from the parking lot garage, and re-set the classrooms for this major fundraiser for our parish. Many people have been cooking, baking, running around with posters, selling chances, etc. for this event, however, we cannot expect the women of our parish to do this heavy lifting. Please come and give us a little of your time to help with this job. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated!
********************************************************************
CONGRATULATIONS & BEST WISHES to Fr. Claude Vineyard on his 50th anniversary of ordination to the Holy Priesthood and to Protodeacon Stephen Howanetz on his 40th anniversary of ordination into the Diaconate! May God bless you both for your service and dedication to the Holy Orthodox Church, and may He grant you MANY YEARS!

NOTE OF APPRECIATION: Many thanks to Subdeacon Nektary for once again honoring us with a visitation of the Miraculous Myrrh-Streaming Iveron “Hawaiian” Icon. May God continue to bless you and protect you and the holy Icon! We pray that the rest of your journey is a safe and spiritually uplifting experience.
