The prosforo this week was provided by the Vacation Church School.

As we continue to pray our weekly paraklesis, please give me the names of your loved ones so that we can pray for their health and salvation. If you have given me the names recently, think about your list on occasion and let me know if there are any changes. Please specify whether you would like all or some of these names to be published in our bulletin so that our parishioners may add them to their daily prayers.

For stewardship in 2014, we have $93,664 pledged so far, of the $100,500 budgeted/$118,715 needed for the 2014 budget. Please fill out a pledge form if you have not done so yet! Forms should be in the narthex.

If you have any tickets or money left to return from the spring dinner, please do so as soon as possible.

Stewardship corner

Stewardship is caring for the needs of others.

Stewardship is offering one's self to God as He offered Himself to us.

Stewardship is what a person does after saying "I believe..." as proof of that belief.
