January 21: Annual Parish MeetingNote that our annual meeting will held this year on Sunday, January 21, a few weeks earlier than usual. More details to come...
Completed Palm Sunday Mural
The mural, which will be placed on a wall in the narthex, will hopefully be shipped and installed sometime in January. You can see the finished product, and some details, here on iconographer Nick Papas’ Facebook page (images at the bottom of the album).
We need cleaners for the next six-month cycle (January-June). It's not a big commitment: two people can get everything done in an hour, and you can clean when it's convenient for you. Please consider cleaning once, twice, or even three times in the next six months. Contact: Mike Lotti (email@example.com or 651-402-0810).
