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.

“On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made. Then, when I arrive, I will give letters of introduction to the men you approve and send them with your gift to Jerusalem” (1 Corinthians 16:2,3). Let us listen as St. Paul advised the Corinthians to set aside money each week to help the church at Jerusalem, and let us be mindful when we set aside our weekly offering to the Church.
