on Partaking of Holy Communion at evening Liturgy: Please keep in mind and practice the rule of abstaining from any
drink or food from noon until Communion is offered when participating in Holy Communion at evening Liturgy. Those who are
ill or on medications are not required to observe this rule strictly. However, even they should abstain at least an hour or
two before the beginning of Liturgy.
We are preparing an end-of-the school year event which includes religious songs and poems
as well as a theatrical performance designed for the Orthodox Church School. We need tutors, mentors, behind the “scenes”
helpers….and many, many more. During the following months, in addition to our regular Sunday school lessons, we will
work on this religious project which is a spiritual, cultural, gratifying and fun opportunity for all. We need your help;
for details please contact Ergini Batistatos-Martnishn, 703-652-4426, firstname.lastname@example.org.

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. Click HERE to join! This year, as an incentive, each individual who joins will
qualify for an opportunity to receive an 8"x10" monastic hand "written" painted icon
