Parish News and Notes
Metropolis C.O.M.E. ministry board visitor: The new Director of C.O.M.E. (the Metropolis Mission Board), Thomaida Hudanish, will visit St. Nectarios on Sept 2 &3. She is based in Portland, OR and attends St. John the Baptist Church in Beaverton, OR. After the Sunday liturgy, she will meet with us during the Fellowship.

Parish Council News: A number of Church improvement projects were conducted in August. The parking lot was re-sealed and new parking lines painted. The good news was that the cracks had not opened – and only a surface treatment was needed.
There has been a long term problem with the “expensive to replace” outdoor lights failing as the result of moisture problems. New light bulbs have been installed in existing fixtures that will be much more reliable and much less expensive to replace.
The Parish Council meetings are normally held once a month after Sunday Liturgy on one the Sundays that Father John is here. The meetings are open to all members in good standing – input is always appreciated. Scott Ghan is the president of the Parish Council.
