Проект НЕХАЙ БУДЕ СВІТЛО для покращення освітлення в нашому храмі потребує вашої допомоги! Наші церковні ліхтарі на стелі є старі, енерговитратні і становлять небезпеку пожежі через перегрів. Нещодавно ми отримали пропозицію від електрика, який може оновити їх за 1 800 доларів. Будь ласка, зробіть пожертву! Отець Андрій може відповісти на будь-які запитання.

TO CROSS OR NOT TO CROSS: When we cross ourselves, we engage our body in the worship; not only mind and heart. But there are times when it is specifically proper to cross ourselves and times when we should not. Here is a brief list of when to cross and when not to cross. To Cross: When we hear one of the variations of the phrase “Father, Son, and Holy Spirit”; during Trisagion; at the beginning and end of the services and our private prayers; before venerating an icon, the cross, or the Gospel book; upon entering or exiting the temple; when passing in front of the holy Altar Table; when bishop or priest blesses us this cross, chalice or Gospel book. Not to Cross: At the chalice before or after taking Communion (we might hit the chalice with our hand); when the bishop or priest blesses saying, “Peace be with all” (merely bow slightly and receive the blessing).

E-MAIL LIST: Please check your emails (inboxes and spam folders). If you gave us your email address, a test email was sent to over 100 parishioners last Tuesday but only 46 replied. We need to know that you received this email and that we can communicate with you in this way. If you haven’t provided your email yet, please do so ASAP. Thank you for being so cooperative in helping our parish cut costs.

ЕЛЕКТРОННІ АДРЕСИ: Будь ласка, перевірте свої електронні адреси (“Вхідні” та відділи зі спамом). Якщо ви надали нам свою електронну адресу, то минулого вівторка було надіслано перевірочне електронне повідомлення понад 100 парафіянам, але лише 46 відповіли. Нам потрібно знати, що ви отримали це електронне повідомлення, і що ми можемо зв’язатися з вами таким чином. Якщо ви ще не надали свою електронну адресу, зробіть це якнайшвидше. Дякую вам за те, що ви так співпрацюєте, допомагаючи нашій парафії скоротити витрати на поштову пересилку.
