Fellowship Hour is being hosted today by the Pavlopoulos and the Paleothodoros families in loving memory of Adriana Pavlopoulos.

 

The Adventure Theater...urgently needs boys and girls to fill parts in our May 3rd play. Interested? See Mr. D. in person or e-mail him at fanari@me.com.

 

Missions Ministry...For the fourth consecutive year, our parish came together in a wonderful effort to help others who are less fortunate and in need.

Thanks to your generous donations of over $31,000, we were able to serve as a host site for packaging nutritious meals for the benefit of hungry children and their families in the Chicago area.

Last Saturday, 384 volunteers came to the parish multipurpose room and packed 100,656 meals!

This annual event has become a giving, caring experience that truly generates a sense of unity and purpose among our parishioners. With the grace of God, we hope to continue this vital ministry each year.

The Missions Ministry thanks you for your generosity, your time, and your help in helping make this event a tremendous success! Glory be to God for all good things!  

You can see pictures and videos from the Feed6 Event, by visiting our website.

" Discoveries in Orthodoxy,"... an adult teaching ministry led by Deacon Perry Hamalis, is continuing with a new 3-part series, "Practicing Prayer." Does prayer matter? Why? What are the common obstacles to prayer? How can we begin to pray? How can we deepen our practice of prayer and connection with God? We will address these questions and will use the book by Metropolitan Anthony Bloom, Beginning to Pray to guide us.  All are welcome! Sessions will be held at Holy Apostles, 7:00-8:15 pm, on alternating week Thursdays: January 30 (Bloom pp 25-51), Feb 13 (Bloom pp 55-78), and Feb 27 (Bloom pp 81-106).
