FR. GEORGE’S MESSAGE IN REGARDS TO SUNDAY SCHOOL

FR. GEORGE'S MESSAGE IN REGARDS TO SUNDAY SCHOOL  My beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I pray that you are having a restful summer and enjoying precious time together with your families. In a couple short weeks, this blessed season will come to a close, giving way to September, when, with the Grace of God, our Annunciation Sunday School will begin another school year.

Indeed, on August 15th, the Orthodox Church celebrates the most glorious Dormition (=falling asleep) and the Metastasis or Assumption (=bodily Ascension to Heaven) of the Most-Holy Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary. And indeed Panagia's Dormition was most glorious, because her life was also Most-Holy.

Please note that this Sunday there will be a 1 - Year Memorial Service for theVery Rev. FatherGeorge Kiricoples. May God comfort his family and may his memory be eternal.

They are from the collection of our beloved Father Dennis Canavos and were lovingly donated by Fotini Bobocharis and Alexandra Canavos.  Their wish is for parishioners to take home and enjoy.
