General Assembly MeetingWe
cannot move forward without your vote. Help us make our vision a reality!
With God's grace
and profound gratitude I would like to announce that on Sunday, October 23rd, immediately after the Divine Liturgy, our Parish
will have a special General Assembly (GA) meeting. There will be only one topic on the Agenda for discussion: The prospect
of purchasing land for our future permanent home! This is something for which we have been waiting and praying for 10 years!
This piece of land is on Russell Branch Parkway and very close to Route 7. It is absolutely crucial and fundamentally essential
for you to be a part of this General Assembly!
Our GOYAns will offer child care services
while we have the GA. Please come and join us.
