Happy Mother's Day
"Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching, (9) for they (mothers) are a graceful garland for your head and pendants for your neck." Proverbs 1:8-9 On Behalf of Father Dean, Father Greg and the Parish Council we wish every mother (ÌçôÝñá) a wonderful and Happy Mother's Day.
MESSAGE FROM THE PRIESTS
It is our greatest desire to visit and bless people who are in the hospital or are sick. Due to HIPPA's confidentiality rules, hospitals and physicians are unable to contact the church to notify us about their patients. Therefore, we ask that you let us know right away by notifying the office so that we may visit and offer our prayers and blessings to those who are ill.
Annual Mother's Day Brunch will be held on Sunday, May 31st. The Special Events committee will be taking reservations following Divine Liturgy. Anyone wishing to donate food for the brunch or help on the day of the event, please contact a member of the Special Events Committee.

Each of us has been blessed with unique gifts and talents. Stewardship is based on the premise that all we have and all that we are comes from God and that we have a responsibility to make the best possible use of time, talents and treasures with which God has blessed us.
FAMILY CENTER NEWS
We are currently at an important milestone. The leaders of the community have pledged a substantial amount to help make the Family Center a reality. Just like the time of our forefathers with the original building project who challenged us and then they matched the challenge. Now the challenge falls back to us again, the rest of the community. To have ground breaking happen this spring, we need to all contribute...to our legacy. The challenge is up to all of us to make our pledge now or increase our pledge...within our means. If we all contribute $667 we can make ground breaking a reality very soon. Talk to your family and give now.
