OXI DAY CELEBRATION INFORMATION
Our OXI Day Celebration is right around the corner on Sunday, October 31st. Here are a few important reminders for that day:
· The Greek School students will have a brief program in the Sanctuary at the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy. They will need to arrive at church dressed in their Greek School uniforms (Greek School logo shirt and navy blue pants/skirts). If you do not already have your Greek School shirt or need a new one, we will have them available for purchase on Wednesday during Greek School. The cost is $15 and cash or a check made out to the GPTO will be accepted for payment. The teachers will be responsible for getting the children from Sunday School back into the sanctuary when it is time for the program. Please have them continue to practice their songs at home.
· The Greek School will also host the Coffee Hour that day. Please follow this link to the Sign-Up Genius to see what items you can contribute to the Coffee Hour.: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040E45ACAA2E5-oxiday4
We thank you for your support and we look forward to celebrating OXI Day with you.
