Faith Love & Joy
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!
Christmas Tree Trimming
Our GOYAn’s teamed up with Philoptochos this past Saturday and helped decorate our Saints Peter & Paul Christmas tree in the atrium! We had so much fun and loved working with Petrol Bazianos and Kris Tsitsis to complete the project.
2018 Fall Retreat!!
This past weekend was the GOYA Fall Retreat! Our kids came together and learned that we were created to be One, One with God, One with ourselves and One with humanity. We learned that God is trinity, and we are in His Image. This shows us how although we are many different persons, we are still one unified humanity.
Outside of the classroom all of our kids competed in the annual Boznos Bowl! The competition was stiff. With Trivia, Relay Races, Team Games and a Debate it was anybody’s game! Only one team could win, and team Fire and Ice took the “W. Team Captains Tommy Mantice and Megan Ladner coached their team to victory. Andrew Pappas, Demetri Aralis, Vasiliki Kanellos, Vaggeli Milovanovic, Chase Danby, and Kate Foster walked away from the retreat as the proud owners of the Boznos Bowl. Until next year!!
