Confessions will be heard on Sunday mornings from 9:15-9:45am and by appointment. All faithful are encouraged to come to the Sacrament every 8 weeks, on average, to help maintain spiritual health. This is especially for those who frequently “with Faith and with Love come forward” to receive the Body and Blood of Christ
The Jr. ACRY trip to Homestead Farm will take place on Sunday afternoon 21 October. Everyone from the parish is invited to attend for an afternoon of fun!! Please see Chris Fallon to make your reservations.
Nut rolls! After Divine Services this morning, these and other baked goods – freshly baked at the last bake day – will be available for purchase during coffee hour. Order forms are available in the hall. Yes, you can buy “on credit,” and yes, you can have your order frozen for a later pickup. Next baking day will be Saturday 27 October. November bake day is scheduled for 11/17.
The Jr. ACRY will have their monthly meeting next Sunday following Divine Services. All Junior members are asked to attend. Officers for the new year will be chosen at this meeting. Any of our young people, 8-18, are welcome to join the ACRY.
The 50th Anniversary celebration is only 11 months away. Now is the time to get the remainder of the planning underway. We need to set up committees for the various tasks that need to be done. A meeting will be held after Divine Services on Sunday 4 November. We need volunteers. If you can help, in any way, please make plans to stay for the meeting. (We will use the school for the meeting.) If you have any questions, see either Father or Mike Buchko.

Gertrude Hawk Candy order forms for the Christmas season are now available in the hall. Orders are due back no later than 18 November (orders will not be accepted after that date). Hand in order forms and payment to Father or Pani.
THE HOLY RESURRECTION CHRISTMAS CARD PROJECT: With the price of cards and postage increasing, we have come up with a way to make sending your Christmas greetings to the parish family easier and less expensive. For a donation of $20 you can have your household listed in a card that will be sent to home of each parishioner. Your donation will cover the cost of cards, printing and postage. If you have any questions about this project, or to hand in your donation, please see Father or Pani during Coffee Hour. Deadline to submit names will be Sunday 18 November.
The new edition of “The Orthodox Study Bible” (now with complete Old & New Testament) will be coming out in February. You can pre-order (with a discount of 40%!) through the church. Copies are $32.00 each (includes shipping) for hardback and $48 for leather bound [regular price is $49.95/hard cover or $79.95.leather +$8.95 S&H] Order deadline, to receive the discount is 9 December. See Gina Verbrugge to order. Payment is due at time of order. Checks payable to Holy Resurrection.
Make plans now: Fall ‘Clean-Up Day’ will be on Saturday 17 November. Yes, it is the same day as our Bake Day, so if you are not helping at one event, please help with the other. The idea is not to take people from either project, but to get the parish family together to work on different projects at the same time. Come and lend a hand (or two!).
