HOW WE CAN HELP REFUGEES IN GREECE
With all of the turmoil going on in today's world, the refugee crisis in Greece has sadly been overlooked by a large majority of the media. Over 62,000 people fleeing violence in their home country are now trapped in Greece. This is not a refugee problem, this is not a Greek problem, this is a world humanitarian problem. In a country whose population hovers around 11 million with an unemployment rate of almost 23% you can imagine the stress this has placed on the residents and the refugees alike. Many will ask, "what can I do from over here," or, "how can I help this problem?" We are in luck as a family from our local parish will be visiting Greece in a few weeks and would like to deliver a few suitcases of much needed items as a gesture of love and support for those in need. Below you will find a list of items that are much needed. We will be collecting items through July 2nd. Please contact Alex Karabinis at (937) 570-0297 if you have any questions.
Baby diapers of all sizes
baby hygiene products
mosquito spray (not aerosol)
flip flops (all sizes)
new underwear (adults and children)
Other items in need are:
t-shirts (men, boy, girl)
shorts (men, boys)
JULY CCM: SHOES 4 THE SHOELESS

PLEASE CONTINUE YOUR STEWARDSHIP GIVING OVER THE SUMMER
We are grateful to all of our parishioners who have made their 2017 Stewardship Commitment to the church and have either fulfilled that commitment or are current in their giving. As we approach the summer months, there is a tendency for Stewardship contributions to decrease. This can place the church in a difficult position as regular expenses, as well as expenses in preparation for the Greek Festival, require payment. The parish, just like our homes, must meet its budget monthly. Our parish family needs everyone to contribute on a regular and timely basis. You may make your contribution by check (mail or bring to church) or credit card online at www.daytonannunciation.org. We appreciate your support of the ministries of the parish and the gifts you offer to the Glory of God!
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28TH FEAST OF ST'S. PETER AND PAUL
We will be celebrating the Feast of St's. Peter and Paul at the St. Paul OCA parish on Wednesday, June 28 at 6:00 pm with a Vesperal Divine Liturgy. The parish is located at 4451 Wagner Rd. Dayton, Ohio 45440. Please RSVP to Carol if you will be going by June 13th in order for our hosts to best prepare for us. You are welcomed to bring a non-fasting covered dish.
PARISH DIRECTORY UPDATE
Over the next couple weeks we will be updating the parish directory with contact information and photos. Starting March 12th, Alex Karabinis will be at coffee hour with a spreadsheet for all parish families to verify and/or update their information. If you wish to have your family's photo taken to be placed along side your information, we will have a camera as well or you can submit a photo via email to the below address. If you wish to just update your information but do not wish to update it at coffee hour, feel free to email AlexFKarabinis@gmail.com. Thank you.
