ADULT RELIGIOUS EDUCATION: We are spearheading an effort to provide Adult Religious Education – Refresher courses to the members of the Parish. The basic plan outline is to provide an English Class after the English Divine Liturgy on Sunday and a Ukrainian class after the Ukrainian Divine Liturgy. The class will be offered once or twice a month. A curriculum is being formulated as we speak. We now turn to you the parishioners to tell us what topics you would like to see covered. We also invite you if you feel you have a topic that you would like to lecture on to bring it to my attention. I look forward to all of your suggestions, Father Iura
BULLETIN UPDATES: Dear parishioners. As you may have noticed their have been some changes and improvements to your parish bulletin over the past six months. In a continuing effort to make the bulletin more parishioner friendly, I call upon you to let me know what else you would like to see and or change. And as always I appreciate the various information materials that you are providing. I look forward to your responses. Father Iura.
CELL PHONES: Please, please, please. Turn of your cell phones when you come to the Divine Liturgy. If you are expecting an emergency call, please put it on vibrate and go outside to answer. Also, please stop using your cell phone during the Divine Liturgy. This is for the benefit of all. Thank you.
SEE SOMETHING – SAY SOMETHING: Dear Parishioners. The physical property of this Parish consists of five different buildings. These buildings belong to you. Take pride in them. If you see something broken or damaged, please pass the information on so that it can be fixed. Tell Father Iura, send an email to the Parish or drop a note in the collection box at the Divine Liturgy on Sunday so that we can repair/fix what is wrong. Suggestions for improvement are also happily accepted. Thank you.
ST. GIANNA CENTER OF NEW HAVEN: The parish is collecting diapers, seats, strollers and gift cards to be given to the St. Gianna Center of New Haven (www.gianna center.org). Useful diapers sizes:3, 4, 5. Gift cards are needed from Wall mart or Target. Please place the gift card in an envelope marked “St. Gianna Center” and give it to directly Fr. Iura. Also, NEW car seats/strollers are needed (sorry, old car seats/strollers can’t be accepted due to legislation. Items can be placed in the labeled box at the entrance of the Church.
