August 30, 2015: Thirteenth Sunday of St. Matthew (August 17 on Orthodox calendar)
• PARISH NEWS
The Bulletin has gone electronic: Bulletins will now be delivered by email to those parishioners with email addresses; no more hard copy Bulletins except for those who do not have email. (These hard copies are now available at the Candle Desk.)
Next Sunday: at the end of the Liturgy on September 6, we shall serve a Moleben for the beginning of the school year. Add students' names to the commemoration list at the Candle Desk. This marks the beginning of Church School: we will meet our teachers, and the first class will be the following Sunday. Altar Boy workshop is the same day: we will go to Coffee Hour, then meet in the Church; we ask all Altar Boys to be present.
We thank our volunteers who came and help trim trees on the church grounds for Tuesday’s bulk pickup: Alexander Romanovsky, Dexter Peavy and Steve Zuber. We also thank Deacon Paul Giatas for cleaning the Altar and polishing the brasswork for the Feast of Dormition. God bless you all!
