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.

Parents, submit a letter to the parish council to request assistance for children going to camp this summer:

  • Camp St. George is an Orthodox camp of the Antiochian Archdiocese in Iowa, August 11-17. The registration deadline is June 30. For more information and registration forms, visit

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.
