Sunday School
Our Sunday School students are exploring the true meaning of THANKSGIVING and what this celebration means to us, the Orthodox Christians. Perhaps one of the best ways to express our thanks, is to offer, the PROSFORO (Bread) that will be used in our Divine Liturgies. Bringing the PROSFORO used to become Jesus’ Holy Body, is a meaningful and at the same time simple way to say THANK YOU to our Church! “PROSFORO” is a Greek word which means “AN OFFERING TO GOD”. PROSFORO represents both, Jesus, the Bread of Life as well as the offering of our life to God. Father George asks for parishioners to help with the PROSFORA as our GOPLC supply is getting low; Our Sunday School is determined to help! We will offer 15 PROSFORA to our church for the November 30 – December 30 period. If you would like to assist with our Sunday School PROSFORA effort please contact Ergini B. Martnishn 703-6524426 or ergini@aol.com.
