Celebratory Meals - The Sisterhood would like to invite all to participate in the upcoming special occasions by bringing a dish to share with your church family:

·       Palm Sunday Potluck – Fish will be provided, side dishes, and desserts are needed.  

·       Resurrection Celebration – Following the Resurrection Service, share traditional breads, cheeses, etc., enjoy a bowl of soup, and crack eggs together.

·       Easter Sunday - “Picnic” and Egg Hunt following the Agape Vespers.  Main dishes, sides, and desserts are needed.


Orthodox Sunday Church School

Two classes are being offered: one for younger and one for older children.   Just come to Church with your children - the classes start just after Communion.  All are welcome! 

Orthodox Discussion Meetings are held at the St Nectarios Church on the Saturday afternoons that Father John is here.  The topics are listed in the listing of church activities.  Please come, and invite your friends to come with you, to enjoy what is normally a lively discussion – and learn more about Orthodoxy.
