CHRIST IS RISEN!
Dear brothers and sisters,
Once again, I take this opportunity to greet you on the occasion of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and on the coming holidays: the Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ and Holy Pentecost.
I want to thank everyone who took part in cleaning and decorating of our Temple for our Paschal celebration.
I express my gratitude to the Parish Council for organizing the Paschal breakfast, and all the donors for their financial assistance to our parish.
We had about 20 people come out and clean the Church for Pascha which made the job easier for the usual regular volunteers. Thank you very much.
Our order of the red and burgundy priest vestments and vessel covers arrived from Ukraine in time for Easter and are very elegant and beautiful.
I would like to thank everyone who wished me their best wishes on the occasion of my 95th Birthday.
A special thanks is extended to Fr. Nazari for giving me such a beautiful icon, and also his Eminence Archbishop Benjamin who gave me a "Gramota". Both gifts were a total surprise to me and I was really touched when they were awarded to me in Church.
The Kiosk still has several calendars for sale, both the St. Tikhon Calendar, which has beautiful prints of icons from Mount Sinai on each page, and the OCA Church of the Saviour in San Francisco, with excerpts from the writings of the ever-memorable Bishop John Shakovskoy on each page.
Christ is Risen!
Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to our care packages for the needy! We were able to assemble 15 packages, which were distributed locally on Great and Glorious Pascha. Special thanks goes to the FORUM study group who assembled all the packages.
