The annual Parish Appreciation Picnic is coming up on Sunday, June 10, after liturgy on our front lawn. Change into your casual clothes after church so you can relax and participate in the fun afternoon! Lunch is a catered barbeque with delicious picnic foods that are ready to eat. There is no charge, nor anything to bring. The picnic is in appreciation of all the work done by parishioners throughout the year. Plan to be there and enjoy the food, games, musical entertainment, and each other.
There was a special collection taken last Sunday during the Divine Liturgy to help provide aid to the parishes, which sustained damage from the recent flooding in New Jersey. These parishes are: Holy Ghost Church in Manville; and St. John the Baptist Church in Rahway. Your donations will join with those donations from our other diocesan parishes to provide needed aid to these Churches,
