 The hymnology class will meet Sundays in the hall, June 16 – July 28. Parents may register for the summer program on the sign-up sheet in the hall or by emailing stj.sundayschool@gmail.com. If not participating in the class, please do not enter the hall during class.

The prosforo this week was provided by Fr. Peter and Veneta Korovilas. We still need a few prosfora for the Divine Liturgies in July. Please contact Fr. Peter if you would like to make this offering for our worship. Please note that the loaves for weekday services do not need to be as large as those for Sundays, so if you are able, please bring some smaller loaves as well.

Please contact Fr. Peter if you would like to be a part of a new group helping serve meals at Green Square Meals approximately once a month.

FALL DINNER: It’s not too early to start planning for the next event, coming up on October 13. The sign-up sheet for helping at the event is posted in the church hall. As always, we need everyone’s help, so plan on attending and pick a shift or two that you can donate to this fundraiser.

As a security precaution, the side door will be locked except during Sunday services. During any service the doorbell will be turned off. Please come in the front door or ask for assistance during regular weekly services.

The food bank continues to have much need for donations. Each time Carrol takes food there they weigh the church's donation, and our gifts are much appreciated. The food pantry donation box is in the narthex area.

Those interested in making visits to nursing homes should contact Elleni Huerter.

The Service Outreach Committee will collect donations for school kits to be distributed by International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC). A list of needed items will be posted in the hall starting Sunday, July 7, and the items will be collected through today, July 21. After Divine Liturgy on July 27, we will package and send the kits. Contact any committee member for details: Elleni, Regina, Edie, Goldie, or Carrol.

Sign-up sheets both for Vacation Church School students and for volunteers to help with snacks, reading, teaching, and clean-up are available in the hall. VCS will be held 9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., Monday, August 5, through Friday, August 9.

Please remember to remove anything which would make a mark (such as lipstick) before venerating the holy icons and especially before receiving Holy Communion.
