Sunday, August 15th Weekly Bulletin
Our first day of classes will be Sunday, September 12th and we look forward to seeing all of our youth then. We ask that you register your children before the start of Sunday School if possible. We need to have a registration form for every child in Sunday School. You can access the registration form by going to wsgoc.org/sundayschool or you may fill out a hard copy that can be found either at the church office or you will get one on the first day of Sunday School.

I greet you with love and joy in the Name of our Lord and Savior, praying that you and your loved ones receive His blessings of health, peace, and joy as we prepare to celebrate the Great Feast of the Dormition of the Mother of God!
Unfortunately, as the peaceful days of summer have been affected by the recent wildfires throughout Greece, I know that we ask the Theotokos to intercede on behalf of those who have been displaced and have lost their livelihoods as a result of these natural disasters.
I would like to uplift our Archbishop's Elpidophoros's efforts to support those in need by encouraging our parishes to collectively offer gifts to support the victims of these wildfires. Quoting His Eminence, "I am calling on every parish across our sacred Archdiocese this Sunday to take-up a special collection for this purpose — the same day on which we celebrate the feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos. I am also inviting whoever wishes to make a direct donation, to do so by visiting the website of our Archdiocese. An accounting of all funds raised for this purpose will be made public, so that every person of goodwill can see how their generosity has effectuated positive results on the ground in Greece. "
To that end, please encourage all our faithful to visit https://www.goarch.org/greecefiresdonate if they feel so moved to offer individual donations.
May our collective intercessions to our Creator help to bring a spirit of healing and peace to those individuals and communities affected.
Paternally yours, with much love in the Lord,
