08.01.2019 To the beloved parish priests of the Orthodox Church in America

August 1, 2019                                                                                                                                                

To the beloved parish priests of the Orthodox Church in America:

Christ is in our midst!

On the closing day of the 19thAll-American Council in July 2018, two college students, Miriam Sheehan and Dimitrios Rentel, gave a brief yet impassioned presentation asking the Orthodox Church in America to reinvigorate its efforts in youth ministry. Within ten minutes, various attendees and online viewers spontaneously pledged over $80,000 toward the Orthodox Church in America’s Department of Youth, Young Adult and Campus Ministry, with the goal in mind of hiring a director for this department. Such generosity sent a clear message – that our people see the need for better youth ministry in the Orthodox Church in America.

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,

Summer camp

   Again this was a successful year at St. Eugene Summer Camp.  We had a total of 50 children attend and unfortunately had to turn away 10-12 more children due to staffing issues (not enough staff for coverage).  You may check out the web page for photos from this session.  It is unfortunate that this year was the last year Fr. Michael Anderson was in charge of the camp and Kathy Pieracci was assistant coordinator.  In appreciation gift certificates were presented to them and the entire camp including staff signed a camp photo from this year as a gift to them both. Our parish had only 1 child attend the camp this year.  I hope next year year will be different.

God bless,

  You can check out more information on the camp web site www.steugenecamp.org.

People have been asking about LOVES and what we do.  Here is a brief explanation: L.O.V.E.S.  is an acronym for Los Angeles Orthodox Visitors to the Elderly and Sick.  This is what we do:  We visit the elderly and sick at home, hospitals, convalescent homes, etc. when we know who they are and where they are located.

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!
