Thursday, Oct. 24 – METROPOLITAN IAKOVOS NAME DAY DINNER – This Clergy Syndesmos Fundraiser supports St. Iakovos Retreat Center. Our parish has budgeted a full table of 10 ($1000) and we look forward to filling it. If you would like to represent our parish at the dinner, please let Fr. Peter know by NO LATER than Sunday, Oct. 20. Your help in covering the cost of this dinner through a good-will donation is greatly appreciated.

The Fall Dinner is just one week away, and preparations are in full swing. This is a very important fundraiser for our parish, and as always the success of the fundraiser rests largely on our shoulders. Everyone’s help is needed to make this a success. Please utilize the sign-up sheet in the hall to let us know when you can help at the event. We encourage everyone to sell as many tickets as possible. If you have not received any tickets or you need more please contact Michael Christodoulou.

If you have signed up to make a pastry for the dinner, please make sure you grab your pans or phyllo dough this Sunday. Please bring all pastries to church on Saturday, October 12, at 3:30 p.m. since there is Byzantine chant at 4:30 p.m. Galaktoboureko should be brought by 10:00 a.m. Sunday morning. We still need volunteers to make galaktoboureko and karidopita. Please see the sign-up sheet or Regina (319-804-9665). As of October 2, Sam’s Club does not have English walnuts, and they will not be in for another two weeks.
