PARISH ASSEMBLY – Today, November 18 – Please attend the Fall Parish Assembly. In addition to being in good canonical standing with the Church, the UPRs and our bylaws also state that all Eligible Voters need to fill out a Pledge Form (Stewardship Commitment Card), pay all prior year balances at least 30 days before the Parish Assembly, and pay at least 75% of the current year’s pledge by the date of the Parish Assembly. Remember, if there is financial hardship to fulfill your pledged amount, speak to Fr. Peter and all adjustments will be made accordingly.

FALL GREEK DINNER – Please turn in all ticket sale income and left over tickets a.s.a.p.Remember, payments made for (purchasing) returned tickets become a tax-deductible donation.

If you would like to learn Byzantine chant or improve your chanting skills and the 4:30 p.m. on Saturday class time does not work with your schedule, let Fr. Peter know.

The Angel Tree Tags to benefit the children of Tanager Place will be put on the St. John’s Christmas tree on Dec 2. As we have done in the past, you can take a tag and bring the gifts the following Sunday to church.

The fellowship sign-up sheet for 2013 is posted by the kitchen. There are also one or two spots left to fill in December. Please stop by, choose a Sunday, and sponsor one of our beautiful gatherings following the services.

If you would like to read the epistle during the Sunday Divine Liturgy, please contact Fr. Peter.
