Keep God in your hearts and in your minds and He will help you accomplish great things. Our high school graduate is ELENA TOMCYKOSKI. May God grant you MANY YEARS and much success in all that you do!

PARISH FEAST DAY: Our patronal feast day, the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, will be celebrated on Friday, July 7th. As you all know, the patronal feast day of a church is the third Pascha for a parish. All who belong to a church should be at services on their church’s patronal feast day and should partake of the Blessed Sacraments. Confessions will be heard on Thursday, July 6th, beginning at 6:00 PM. Please plan on spending July 6 and 7 with your spiritual family – at church. All should plan on receiving the Sacraments at the Hierarchical Liturgy. We have all been blessed by God, what better way to thank Him for all of the blessings He has bestowed upon us and our parish other than by giving Him thanks by partaking of His Body and Blood. Bishop Nichoals will be with us on this day. Also, following the Liturgy on the Feast Day, a Lenten meal will be served in our church center for all in attendance.
FLORAL BASKETS NEEDED FOR FEAST DAY: Persons willing to donate floral baskets for our patronal feast day on July 7th may do so by contacting the rectory or Gary. Thank you!
