  • “Listen” Audio Devices – It appears that several of our audio devices that we lend out during services have gone missing.  We are missing about 6 of these.   If you accidentally took one home, please return it.   We are also ordering some additional devices that can be borrowed during services, but if you wish to purchase one as your personal device to keep, the cost is $60.00.  Just let a Parish Council member know or contact someone in the book store.   We will also be implementing a new check out process for the devices so that we can keep better track of usage.
  • Iconography Campaign:   Reminder that the campaign has offered a 20% discount on any item priced over $10,000 if paid in full by the end May 2018.  If interested please contact Father Michael, Father Chrysostom or any Parish Council Member. 

 *Also remember that any amount contribution collected will be matched dollar of dollar by the Mary Pappas (up to $10,000) This money will be used towads completing any unsponsored pieces or to offset any expenses. This means tht if you sponsor a Saint at $4,500, the campaign generates an additonal $4,500 dollars for other pieces.

*It also means that any general contribution of ANY amount to the campaign will also be doubled and used to finish out the projects.  So even if you cannot sponsor a specific piece, please make a donation towards the campaign as “General Icon Donation” since this will also be matched to help us towards our goal. A table will be set up during coffee hour where you can fill out a pledge for, make  a contribution or review the pricing list of available Icons.
