FESTIVAL NEWS 

We are in need of a Boutique chair(s) for this year’s festival. Assistance will be provided in helping with start-up. If interested, or would like more information, please contact Andrea Casey, 937.414.0613, or andreacasey6789@gmail.com


The first Sunday of every month is designated as “Youth Sunday” 

Students learn about the life of the church by participating in various roles during the Divine Liturgy. They serve our Lord by greeting parishioners, assuming ushering duties, singing in the choir, leading the congregation in The Lord’s Prayer, The Creed and reading The Epistle. In addition, a collection tray is passed to help defray the cost of our new books and Catechism School curricular needs. We wish to thank all of the parishioners who so generously give!

STEWARDSHIP 2018: PROVIDING FOR THE FUTURE, SERVING THE PRESENT

Please remember to turn in your 2018 pledge card. Many parishioners have yet to pledge their financial commitment to our parish for the current year. Regular payment is very important too. Bills are paid on a regular basis not just at the end of the year. Please make your financial commitment to your parish today!
