On Sunday, Church School had its annual St. Nicholas Project where each student in the Church School brought a gift for a girl or a boy in need! It was a beautiful day with a lot of joy! St. Nicholas must have been smiling at us this Sunday.
Faith Love & Joy met this Friday and made delicious pizzas for the Soup Kitchen at First Presbyterian Church in Evanston, IL. We brought our favorite toppings, got some dough and cheese, and we went to town. We made 17 pizzas for the kitchen! It was an awesome day and was a blessing to be able to give in a time of thanksgiving. Thank you to all of the parents who helped in the kitchen!
Junior GOYA had a Junior GOYA Funday, where all of the Jr. GOYAn’s get togeteher, play a couple epic games of Hide & Go Seek, hit the gym and play some dodgeball, eat some pizza and relax with some s’mores and gaga ball! What a way to spend our Friday night together in fellowship!
This past Sunday, our 4th grade Church School students each received an Orthodox Study Bible at the close of liturgy. We pray their lives, like their church school curriculum will be centered around Christ and his word.
These past two weeks have been filled! GOYA and Jr. GOYA both had their first meetings of the year. Our kids baked cookies to further their understanding of the Sacraments and how we are called to participate in them!
As part of our pilgrimage we spent time in Boston visiting Hellenic College Holy Cross (a Greek Orthodox college in Boston), Faneuil Hall, and you guessed it, Fenway Park for a Yankees – Red Sox game! It was the perfect storm for our NYC/BOS trip!
