Just wanted to share the beautiful card that the parish received from Ivan, the child we sponsored with Project Mexico this Christmas. website.
With the blessing of His Grace, Bishop Gregory, the National Senior ACRY is sponsoring an Advent Mission Project to benefit Diocesan mission parishes. The entire proceeds of the Advent Mission Project will be used to purchase much needed liturgical items and supplies that will greatly assist our Diocesan mission parishes in proclaiming the good news and beauty of the Orthodox Faith in their local communities. The deadline for submitting donations is January 31, 2015.
Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. We would like to remind people to bring their unwrapped Christmas items for Ivan our St. Innocent orphan to church this Sunday. Please contact Susan Sulich with any last minute questions on this project. Also don't forget to bring your give away bags of clothing to church tomorrow for the clothing drive.
We have decided to do the Christmas shopping for one of the boys who lives at the orphanage at Project Mexico. Our boy is Ivan. The orphanage has sent a specific list of items that Ivan needs. The list is posted in the hall. If you would like to purchase one item from list, please put your name next to the item you wish to get. All items need to be brought to the church, not wrapped, by November 30th. If you have any questions, see Susan Sulich.
