On Sunday, December 15, we were happy to host the Halsell family from Saint Vladimir's Seminary, whom our parish sponsored for Saint Nicholas Wish List Project organized by FOCA (R Club). Katrina Fett organized and ran the project for our parish.
After the Liturgy, the kids presented a Yolka performance on the life of Saint Nicholas. After that, Saint Nicholas himself visited us with presents!
Glory to Jesus Christ!
This year, the Great Feast of Pentecost, when the Church celebrates the descent of the Holy Spirit, also coincided with Father's Day. After the Festal Liturgy and Vespers with kneeling prayers, we sang "Many Years!" to all fathers, grandfathers, godfathers, and uncles. Sunday School bought presents for all the men of our parish - barbecue sauce! (This will be one of the greatest grilling seasons ever.)
Also, Maryann celebrated her birthday and two of our Sunday School students, who missed end of school year celebration last week, received their presents.
Glory to God for all things!
Blessed and joyful Pentecost season to all!
