2023 EVENT CALENDAR: Any individual or church group that will have events scheduled during 2023 should make the dates known as soon as possible to President Dr. Paul Szwez to avoid confusion.
COFFEE and…: We always need coffee, butter, individual creamers, and monetary donations. Coffee and.. will be served today! Thank you for your continuous support!

BLESSING OF HOUSES FOR THEOPHANY: Fr. Andrii will begin blessing houses tomorrow, Monday, January 9, 2023. He will start in New Britain and then continue in other cities and towns. Visits can be made in the morning, afternoon, or evening. If you have a preference, please call Fr. Andrii at (860) 989-5748. Otherwise, the father will call you to set up a day and time.

DUES: Parishioners should be aware that the $520 yearly dues, do NOT include the amount per member that we have to send to Metropolia, which is $100. As a result, paying only $520 means that we have to take the $100 for Metropolia from the $520 amount, leaving us only $420 per member to pay for church expenses for the entire year. We would greatly appreciate if you include this amount for Metropolia dues as extra to your regular contributions. $620 would be the amount for both Church and Diocese dues. WE CLOSED OUR FINANCIAL BOOKS FOR 2022. ANY MONEY RECEIVED AFTER THAT DATE WILL APPEAR ON YOUR 2023 NOTICE.

AFFIRMATION OF OFFICE: The recently elected Church Council members for 2023 will take their oath of office next Sunday, January 15. *** A Reminder: According to our Parish Constitution, Council members must receive Sacraments of Confession and Communion prior to receiving the oath of office.


Classes will be held today and will be dismissed at noon, as usual.

Caroling TODAY – Those students and young adults planning on going caroling today should meet in the church hall at noon. Families who wish to have the carolers come to their home or to a rest home are asked to let Fr. Andrii know before noon.

Happy birthday to Olivia whose birthday was this past week and to Natalie who will be celebrating in the coming week.

Congratulations to Genevieve, whose patron saint St. Genevieve of Paris, was observed on January 3.
May God grant Olivia, Natalie and Genevieve MANY BLESSED YEARS! MNOHAYA LITA!
