I want to thank everyone who offered their assistance and helped with a preparation of our Church Temple with the beginning of the repairs. I also want to thank those who helped to put everything back together when the repairs were done.

Sisterhood news 

The Sisterhood has been busy preparing for its Patronal Feast Day.  Will report on it in the next Bulletin.

Five new Altar Table covers have arrived and Fr. Nazari has been using them already.  We purchased white, gold, black, purple and burgundy.  We still need blue and green. We also are helping Father purchase several robes for the Deacon when he goes to Ukraine this month.  The Deacon needs various colors to match the vestments for the different holy days. The ladies are still working very hard to prepare a variety of dishes for our Sunday Buffets.  If you noticed, many new dishes have been added as well as homemade desserts.  We thank all those who have added to our menu, and we are grateful for their help.  If anyone wants to make and donate a favorite dish of theirs, we will be sincerely appreciative, and will serve it for our parishioners.  Just let us know if you want to contribute.

Dear parishioners and friends of our beloved Holy Virgin Mary Cathedral, I want to express my gratitude for your help and your donations to the parish building fund. The latest project is completed - walls of the church were repaired and painted and are sparkling clean! Unfortunately, not all of our bills are paid in full, and once again I ask for your financial help. Please make donations to the best of your ability.  

Yours in Christ,

The Kiosk contents have been moved from the old location in the School Building to the lower level of the Hall Building. This means the Kiosk will be more accessible to you as you leave the hall and head for your car the lower parking lot!  Hopefully, more of you will drop by and see what's new!
