·    PHILOPTOCHOS – A second tray will be passed today to support the HCHC (Holy Cross Hellenic College) scholarship fund. Please make checks payable to Philoptochos.
·    SENIOR CITIZENS – We will not be attending the play “Altar Boyz” as initially planned due to theme appropriateness. Instead, we will watch the movie “Evan Almighty” here in the church hall today after fellowship. The seniors from St. George have been invited. Bring your own bag-lunch if you desire. Some discussion, of course, will follow the movie.
·    SUNDAY SCHOOL – Due to the blessing of 40+ students registered for Sunday School we have to have Level 3 and Level 4 classes (grades 7-12) right before the Divine Liturgy starting at 9:15am. Thank you to our teachers who have agreed to come earlier and thank you in advance to all the parents for bringing your children earlier so that they can continue to benefit from this important educational and character building ministry of our parish.
·    MEMORIAL SERVICE – Ebrahim’s grandmother fell asleep in the Lord this past week. May her memory be eternal and her soul rest in peace among the saints.
·    OUR PARISH WEBSITE – The new and improved parish website (www.stjohncr.org) has been launched since Monday, September 7th. As any website, it will continue to grow, but take the time to visit it occasionally. Scripture readings and details of our upcoming events can always be found there along with pictures and much more to come.
·    GREEK SCHOOL – The children’s classes have started this past Wednesday at 4:30pm. We seem to have plenty of interest to start a Beginners Class for Adults. Please be sure to register by signing your name on the form in the church hall. You will be contacted later so we can decide on an appropriate weekly time slot for this class.
