From 09-02-2012 Sunday Bulletin

Post date: Sep 7, 2012 7:06:47 PM

· TODAY – 40-day Memorial Service for Alex Ruggieri (Khouria Irene’s brother). His memorial service today will include some melodies familiar to him and his family from his choir directing days. May his soul rest in peace among the saints and his memory be eternal.

· TODAY – FALL GREEK DINNER – As usual, 10 tickets per adult are distributed in the hopes that all of them and more will be sold. If not, paying for (purchasing) returned tickets becomes a tax-deductible donation. Last but not least, the Sign-up Sheet for the Volunteer Positions is in the Church Hall by the refreshments line, please sign up.

· SUNDAY SCHOOL – First day of classes is September 16, 2012. There will be a brief parent-teacher meeting in the Nave of the church immediately following the Divine Liturgy – details already sent by email. This meeting will explain the new programs for the school year. Please attend. NOTE: That same day, the Prayer for the Beginning of the Sunday School Year will be said by Fr. Ciprian over our students (and teachers) immediately after the Gospel Reading (at the Children’s Sermon). Students and teachers should all be present.

· SERVICE TIMES – We just moved back to our regular 9:00am Orthros & 10:00am Divine Liturgy. However, Fr. Ciprian strongly recommends we DO NOT tinker with our alarm clocks and maybe continue to get up at the same time on Sunday mornings, so as to make it to church earlier. While very few of us are able to make it for Orthros, arriving at church before the Doxology should be a habit for adults and children alike, especially if one intends to receive communion.

· Mon, Sept. 3 – Labour Day (we usually enjoy this day by relaxing & not laboring much?!)
