REFRIGERATOR!!! Duke Energy came to do an Energy Check in the hall to find out why our electrical bills for the hall are higher than for the house, and by their calculations we’re paying $84 a month for refrigeration, and the majority of it is the old refrigerator in the kitchen. We need to buy a new refrigerator for the hall to start saving! Please, if you can, help us out with a donation! May God reward you a hundredfold for your generosity! Thank you!

Our Coffee Social Hour following Divine Liturgy: When you go shopping consider purchasing something for our coffee hour on Sundays. We can always freeze the item(s) until needed. Thank you.
Remembering Those Living and Deceased: The "remembrance books" are placed on stands next to the new front icons of Our Lady and Our Lord thereby entrusting them to Our Lord and His Mother. In doing so, those loved ones may always be before them and remembered. The book on the LEFT is to record the names of the LIVING and the on the RIGHT is for the DECEASED. You may also light a candle to signify your prayers of remembrance. As part of a Christian's prayer life, remembering those living and those deceased is very important.
Mirovanije: Is the anointing with Holy Oil and is traditionally reserved for special feast days. This is a sacramental blessing with Holy Oil which is applied to your forehead by Fr. Olexiy. He then will proclaim the greeting, "Christ is among us!". You then will give the appropriate response, "He is and He shall be!" You then can take a piece of blessed bread. This bread is NOT the Holy Eucharist!
