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.

Sunday School
Christ is born, glorify Him! Christ comes from heaven, meet Him!
The Christmas Journey- A Retreat for all Ages: During our Sunday School classes on December 21, our Sunday School students, will “revisit” the Christmas Pageant, from scene to scene; we will explore the icon of Nativity and our students will be encouraged, in an age appropriate way, to share their feelings about the Nativity Story and what part impressed them the most. Our Sunday School teachers will reiterate that “God loves us so much that gives us His Son who saves us from our sins and leads us to heaven”.
All are welcome (especially our seniors) to join our Sunday School mini retreat as we prepare to celebrate the incarnation: the mystery that God became human, that Christ "became flesh and dwelled among us" (John 1:14)
Special Note: Our students will prepare an end-of-the- school year performance which will include, hymns, religious songs and 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 classes, our students will work on this religious event preparations which will give all participants(of all ages) the chance to take part and in a spiritual, cultural, gratifying, fun and informative project. More details will follow in January 2015. In the mean time, for questions please contact Ergini Batistatos-Martnishn ergini@aol.com. 
Merry Christmas! Ergini Batistatos-Martnishn - Sunday School Director
