· Prosphora this week were prepared by Fr. Peter. Prosphora are needed for upcoming feasts and Sundays. If you are able to make some, please let Fr. Peter know.

· Parishes and religious communities are being targeted by a phishing scam where the attacker poses falsely as the priest via email and asks the recipient for money in the form of gift cards. These emails come from fake accounts which appear to an unsuspecting person as a clergy email address, something like orthodoxpreist@gmail.com (notice the typo!) or frpeter.stgeorgenh@gmail.com. The perpetrator then goes on to ask the recipient to buy gift cards and send photos of them back so that they can use the numbers to acquire the money.

· Beautiful Orthodox Study Bibles are available for purchase for $40. See Fr. Peter.

· Incense charcoal ($2/sleeve of 10) is available to buy to help our building project.

· If you or your loved one is in the hospital or homebound, please let Fr. Peter know directly.

· Please sign up to sponsor a Sunday fellowship. If you cannot be present or cannot serve, you can financially sponsor the fellowship and someone will pick up the food. As little as $25 can be used for a basic sponsorship of bagels, a topping (peanut butter or cream cheese), and juice. On Sundays that are not sponsored by a parishioner, a basket will be set out for funds to offset the cost of the food. The next week without sponsorship is Sunday, February 2.
