2016 St. John Chrysostom Oratorical Festival
Our GOPLC Sunday school will be hosting the Parish Oratorical Festival in March, 2016. Our students are encouraged to make the final selection of their topics by January 30, 2016. In addition to our current Sunday school students, we would like to invite all our GOPLC Family students who have not so far attended Sunday school to go ahead and join our classes, reiterating that it is never too late to register and participate in our Oratorical Festival. We look forward to having all of our students from 4th to 12th grade participate in this program. A panel of 3 judges will review and grade each speaker. The speakers in the Elementary Division (Grades 4th to 6th grade) are not judged.
For further details and questions please contact our Sunday School senior class teacher and Oratorical Festival Chairman, Mr. John Canakaris, who is available to talk with you after the completion of Sunday School classes each Sunday.

We wish to encourage all Orthodox Christians to join our GOPLC Ladies Philoptochos Society. Although only ladies can be active voting members, we welcome our brothers in the Lord to be associate members as well. Our nominal fee of $40/each for the year helps with various philanthropic outreach programs. Our chapter continues to provide immediate financial assistance to those in need, while participating in philanthropic programs throughout our community and country. We are involved in many philanthropic efforts throughout the year. We all have our special talents and we always welcome new ideas and suggestions.Click HERE to join!  Thank you for supporting our endeavors as we strive to fulfill our Lord's Command to help those in need.
