Note 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. 
Sunday School
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, 703-652-4426ergini@aol.com

We wish to encourage all Orthodox Christians to join our GOPLC Ladies Philoptochos Society during our membership drive through April 26, 2015. 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. 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 of the Panagia Portaitissa that was donated to our Philoptochos. All members and associate members will be eligible and the recipient will be notified at the end of our drive. Thank you for supporting our endeavors as we strive to fulfill our Lord's Command to help those in need.

Men's Bible Study
Men’s Bible Study meets the first and third Wednesdays of each month at church from 7:00-8:30pm. Please contact Father George Alexson or Nick Spyros with any questions: nlspyros@yahoo.com.

PAREA wishes all our parishioners a healthy and blessed New Year! Our February PAREA will take place on Tuesday, February 3rd, at PIZZARAMA, 1025 Seneca Road, Great Falls, VA 22066. Tel: (703) 956-6900 at 11:30am. Please give Marina a call (Tel:703-349-1842) so we have an idea of how many people will be joining us! Thank you!
PAREA is sponsoring "Because EYE care for you!" Please donate your old prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, or any other glasses that you have at home and do not use. Your recycled glasses can make a happy difference in a destitute person’s life. PAREA will donate the glasses to the Lion's Club through a local eye center. It costs the Lion's Club less than US $0.08 to provide someone in a developing country with a pair of recycled eyeglasses that can change their life for the better. During the month of February, PAREA will have a box marked with a pair of eyeglasses located in the Church Hallway. Please help us gather as many pairs as we can! "Because EYE care for you!" Questions: Marina Blair-tel:703-349-1842
