24th Sunday after Pentecost Church School News

Church School classes will be held today.

Congratulations to the following students who will be observing the feast of the first-called apostle, St. Andrew, on November 30: Maximillian Andreas, Ansor Andriy, and the 2nd-grade class.  All will celebrate that event today.  Emma will observe her feast day, St. Emma on December 3 and will celebrate it with her class next Sunday,

The Church School’s annual toy collection for disadvantaged children in the greater New Britain area has begun.  Please donate new, unwrapped toys for this very worthy cause.  You will find donation boxes in the church hall foyer.   After making your donation, please sign a star on the Nativity icon on the wall above the boxes.  This collection will continue until December 11.

If anyone is willing to iron a few simple costumes for the Nativity pageant on December 11, please see Cynthia Sirick.  The costumes will be available for pick up in the hall on December 4 and must be returned on either December 10 or 11.

LOOKING AHEAD – Advent confession for the children of the parish.  PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN SCHEDULE.  Dec. 10 – students in grades 4-8.  Dec. 18 – teens and young adults. Father will hear confessions from the teens and young adults after Divine Liturgy.  The younger students will have confession during the St. Nicholas program rehearsal.  Confession during Advent is a requirement for all Orthodox Christians.

Rehearsal for the St. Nicholas program will be held on December 10 in the church.  Information will be sent to all students after Thanksgiving.  All Church School students are expected to attend.
