The prosforo this week was provided by Mary Dalamaggas and Eleonora Rieck. We will soon need more prosfora for the feasts of December. Please let Fr. Peter if you could make some. 

Please check the sign-up sheet in the hall for opportunities to sponsor the Sunday fellowship hour. Two Sundays in Advent still need sponsorship. 

Limited tickets are still available for the special benefit concert featuring George Dalaras, Sunday, November 30, 2014 beginning at 7:00 PM at the Harris Theater (located at 205 E. Randolph Drive at the north end of Millennium Park in downtown Chicago). 

The Christmas Play will be on Sunday, December 14, after the Divine Liturgy. Christmas Play The last regular rehearsal will be held on Sunday, December 7. It will begin during fellowship (after everyone has had a snack/meal). There will be no rehearsal today. The dress rehearsal will be on Saturday, December 13, after the Divine Liturgy (11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.). If you are not able to attend a scheduled rehearsal please notify Maria Katsiris (mariakatsiris@yahoo.com or 319-373-0777). 

Help is needed on December 7 to put up and decorate the Church Christmas Tree. We ask for some volunteers to put up the tree and prepare the ornaments so the children may decorate the tree after Christmas Play Rehearsals. If you would like help with the Christmas Tree this year contact Maria Katsiris. All our church family are invited to bring a family picture ornament to decorate the Christmas Tree. 

If you are sponsoring one of our Sunday School Students in the Achievement Award Program please turn in you contribution so that we may place the order for the icons. They are made to order and the supplier needs time to prepare them. Thank you for your continued support of this program.
