WHAT IS "FRIEND'S OF THE METROPOLIS?" SEE ATTACHED BROCHURE AND SEE HOW WE CAN HELP OUR DIOCESE
FEBRUARY 25-SUNDAY OF ORTHODOXY
There will be a procession through the church at the end of Divine Liturgy led by the priest with our current council president, past council presidents, archons, and the Catechism School. Please bring an icon to carry.
On Saturday, March 3, the Sacrament of First Confession will be offered to our 3rd and 4th grade Catechism School students at 10:00 am. There will be a lecture with confessions to follow. Pizza and refreshments will be provided. We will need a few parents to help chaperone so please volunteer. The following Sunday morning at Divine Liturgy those children who partook of the Sacrament of Confession will be the first to receive Holy Communion while holding lit candles in celebration of the renewal of their baptism through repentance. We must instill in our children from a young age that there is joy in experiencing God’s forgiveness through this great Sacrament!

SUMMER CAMP DATES
Meet every Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM in the Athenagoras room. Adult Catechism will resume Tuesday, Feb. 20 at 7:00 pm. Due to Lent I will not have the time to adequately prepare full lectures. As such these sessions will be more question driven by you. So, please do your part by bringing questions to the classes. I will certainly lecture on the reading but not in the length and depth I did previously. For homework read the entire New Testament section of Volume 1: Doctrine and Scripture page 172 to 206.
