We will no longer be using sign-up lists for Sunday and Feast day liturgies, but in order to accommodate parishioners who are in high risk categories with regard to the Coronavirus (and those in their households), we will have Liturgy on all of the Saturdays in the month of June, but attendance at these Saturday liturgies will be restricted to those people — this does not apply, however, to clergy, servers, or those singing in the choir.

In the Trapeza hall, there is a table with items we will not need in the new kitchen. You are all welcome to take any of these items you would like.
We will have a picnic after the kneeling Vespers of Pentecost on Sunday, June 7th. We will have this meal catered, and so we ask that all families who plan on attending sign up so we will know how many people to prepare for.
If anyone in your family is graduating this Spring, please let Fr. John Whiteford know.
