November 2015 Holydays and schedule

    November 24 - A message from Father John: Information:

    Hi Beloved Parishioners and Friends: Glory be to Jesus Christ, our partner in everything we do GOOD. It is a joy to have our parishioners and friends come together, to work together in producing ethnic foods as a team. We are a team of Christians who put our talents and time together for the good of the Holy Church. This happened last Friday evening when a team came together to make 125 dozen of pirohi (1500 individual ones) for the Christmas Bazaar. It is not work, but fellowship with one another. We thank Pani, Pat O. Mark, Christian, Jessica Samilenko, Nick Halladay, Ann & Dave Kern, John & Bryan Bilanin, Ken Bilanin, Deacon Jim, Bill & Barbara Bone, And on Monday, a small team came together to make Kifli, nut, apricot, lekvar delicious cookies, so tasty. They made 1,563 individual ones. Wow, amazing but true...We thank Pani, Pat O. Rose Greenawald, Kathy Phifer, Marie Zarynow, Terry Fakete, Jim Deskiewicz. The week before the Bazaar we need help to make 2000 halupki in two days....call Fr. John...we start about 9 am. It is fellowship, not work. Love Father John.

    We have another NEW BABY: Alexander Jacob Link, the son of John & Megan and brother to Eva. Born 11/9/15. All is well. Many blessings upon the family with health and happiness.

    NOTE: We are going to charter a bus to travel to St. George Orthodox Church, Taylor, PA, for a service, to see the miracle Icon of the Blessed Mother and be blessed with the myrrh, oil from the Icon. The date is Saturday December 5. Sign up. No charge.
