Family Camp is modeled after the program at Antiochian Village. We will have daily services, Christian Education for children, a keynote speaker for the parents, sports and games for the whole family to participate.

Registration details and schedule are online at http://antiochian.org/FamilyCampNE. We also have a facebook event under the Diocese Facebook page.



Baking Bread

We are looking for a few good bakers to join our team. Each week a member of the parish bakes the holy bread / prosphora / khurban, which is used for the Divine Litury. We have recipes, seals and veteran bakers who will show you how it works. Please see Father Joseph or Emily Pappas.



SALAD DRESSING SALES

Have you run out of salad dressing and marinade? It is the perfect blend for your homemade salad or to rub on shrimp and chicken before your grill. If you have run out you can pick up a jar at church on Sunday mornings. Or you may see our team of ladies selling Sittee's Savory Kitchen Salad Dressing at Farmer's Markets in the area. Just yesterday they were in Walpole.



ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN CHARITIES

There has been a tremendous outpouring of prayers and support for those affected by Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. IOCC asks you to keep those affected by Hurricane Harvey in your prayers and also those now facing Hurricane Irma.

IOCC has been in the region since early last week providing care and we will continue to be in the Houston region and Louisiana for months to come. IOCC has arranged, through partners for two truckloads of hygiene kits, clean-up buckets, food, and baby products to the Houston area How can you help? Make a gift.

Create clean up buckets, our supply of clean up buckets has been depleted at our warehouse, please consider creating clean up buckets and shipping to our warehouse for distribution. Instructions on creating and shipping kits here: iocc.org/kits.

Share our good work: follow us on our social media channels (IOCCRelief) and share how IOCC is responding to support people in need. And pick up your own disaster preparedness packet in the hall.



BUILDING RENOVATION AND EXPANSION

In answer to requests from those at the annual meeting, a new flyer has been printed showing an overview of the project, its costs and funding. These were put in the mail this past week and an additional copy is enclosed with this bulletin so that you may pass it on to family and friends who are interested in our building campaign. Information about Designated Donations can be found in the parish hall.



New Building Renovation Design

The Parish Council and Building Committee are pleased to share the updated sketches for our renovation and expansion project.

We are grateful for our generous donors. We are now offering everyone the opportunity to contribute a dedicated donation. If you and your family (or several) families are moved to dedicate a portion of this project in honor or memory of a loved one, please click here for the details.

Your prayers and support are much appreciated.

Need a stocking stuffer or hostess gift this season? Give our parish's salad dressing and marinade: Jars and refills are available at coffee hour and on line at SitteesSavoryKitchen.com What a great stocking stuffer! Proceeds are all going to our building fund.

The Mission Statement (from the lid of the jar):
