The prosfora this week were provided by Fr. Peter, Tula Margellos, and Eleonora Rieck. We need prosphora for services in February. Please let Fr. Peter know if you are able to offer the bread for the Divine Liturgy.

The sign-up for the 2014 fellowships is posted in the hall. Please remember juice for fellowship should not be red or dark-colored, in case of spills.

For 2014, we have $76,971 pledged so far, of the $100,500 budgeted/$118,715 needed for 2014. Please fill out a pledge form if you have not done so yet! Forms should be in the narthex.

2014 calendars are here. Please bring your 2013 calendars back so that we can use the icons for Sunday school.

Through the month of February, Fr. Peter will be blessing the homes of the St. John faithful. The schedule has gone out by email and regular mail. Please contact the office as soon as possible if you need to make a change in the schedule.

2014 Parish Council: President: Michael Christodoulou; Vice-president: Konstantinos Katsiris; Treasurer: Chris Paxton; Secretary: Lance Okones; Members: Evan Farfaras, Joseph Wright, and Frank Dancer. Due to work commitments Demetrios Hadjis was unable to complete his term on the parish council. Per archdiocesan regulations, the parish council met and agreed unanimously that Frank Dancer should be his replacement for 2014.

Please note that, even though we only have two spots marked as reserved for people with disabilities, we have more than a couple of parishioners who can benefit from parking closer to the entrance. Thus, on Sundays, please consider two additional spots beyond the reserved spots as special needs parking.
