Book & Icon Store
We welcome you to visit our bookstore on Sundays following Divine Liturgy. You will find much spiritual food and support for your life’s journey, both in Greek and the English language. The Book and Icon Store is a 100% volunteer staffed ministry of our parish. Throughout the years the Book and Icon Store has grown into a community gathering place, as each of us seek a special way to nourish our soul and share a smile amongst friends, neighbors, children, students, parishioners, and patrons. We give thanks for the many ways God brings us together over the pages of a book, the serenity of an icon or the smile of a child whose eyes are open wide at the beauty they find within the Book and Icon Store. Come and See!

Coffee Connection is an educational ministry for adults that aims to strengthen knowledge and practice of the Orthodox faith. Twice a month, all interested adults meet in the youth room under the gym on select Sundays following Holy Communion until 11:40 am. The setting is ideal—everyone gathers in the youth room kitchen for a cup of coffee and to chat with other parishioners. Offered in this “mini coffee hour” is a selection of educational handouts about our Orthodox faith. Once all are gathered, participants move into the adjacent room for a presentation and discussion on the day’s topic. The presentation is an opportunity to learn more about the faith, while the discussion emphasizes how to practice Orthodox traditions in our everyday lives. Coffee Connection is led by Prof. Helen Theodoropoulos, Randa Anderson, and Doreen DeSent.
Coffee Connection leaders may be reached at SSPP.COFFEE.CONNECTION@gmail.com.
As Orthodox Christians, we have a responsibility for the stewardship of our environment. The purpose of our Environmental Ministry is to encourage commitment, implement programs, and establish community through this stewardship. Our Environmental Ministry is one of the first such orthodox church ministries in the United States. Through our ministry, we foster a spirit of volunteerism, community and collaboration in support of our earth and the life it sustains.

Our overall purpose is to teach our students the skills needed to communicate using the Greek language therefore we put emphasis on conversation and introduce them to the Greek culture, civilization and traditions. We also teach them to be kind, respectful and faithful. Learning another language is educational. Learning the Greek language is like discovering the roots of education.
