This week at St. John
The prosfora this week were provided by Regina Christodoulou, Tula Margellos, and Eleonora Rieck.
We have a few spots available for hosting fellowship in December. If you have not had a chance to host one this year please utilize the sign-up sheet in the church hall. Please remember that juice for fellowship should not be red or dark-colored, in case of spills.
Old flowers at the cemetery need to be removed, and other personal clean-up accomplished.
St. John will collect for IOCC health kits, to be shared around the world for those in need during these troubling times. Please use the sign-up sheet in the hall and bring in your donated items by Sunday, December 1. During the St. Nicholas youth lock-in (December 6), the youth will assemble the kits to be sent.
The bookstore will be open during coffee hour through December 1. Please place your orders now for beautiful Christmas gifts from Ancient Faith Publishing, including books, ornaments, icons, music, and more!
A few of our parishioners will be making Christmas pastries as a fund-raiser for our church. The pastries available are: galaktoboureko, baklava, kourambiedes, koulourakia, and karidopita. The prices on the pastries are the same as at our dinners. Orders are accepted between November 24 and December 8 and will be ready for pick-up or delivery on Saturday, December 14. Please see Elleni, Carrol, Edie, Goldie, Regina, or Presvytera Magda if you or someone you know would like to order.
Christmas play cast members: rehearsals are Sundays at 12:15 pm, lasting about 20 minutes. The first Saturday play rehearsals will be held on December 7, 10:00 – 11:30 am. The last rehearsal (full dress rehearsal) will be on December 14, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon. We ask that all cast members try their best to attend as many rehearsals as possible. Please notify Maria Katsiris if you are unable to attend a scheduled rehearsal.
Angel Tree tags are available to pick up in the hall; please select a tag and sign up. Unwrapped gifts should be returned by Sunday, December 15, so that they can be sent to Tanager Place in time.
