FLOWERS: Our thanks for flowers donated this week: 2 Bouquets donated in memory of Frank Kulick by Wife Eleanor Kulich & Family.

BUILDING FUND: We wish to thank those who donated to the Building/Improvement Fund this week in memory of Irene Gerzarowski – by John Chick and in memory of John Shircavage – by Dave & Cindy Newsome.

WILLOW BRANCHES: Please bring your Pussy Willows for Palm Sunday. Place them either in the entrance of the Church or Hall if no one is around to accept them. We will need them for this week. Palm Sunday is Sunday the 28th of March.

SVACHENE: The Blessing of the New Icon by Metropolitan Stefan Soroka will take place the day we planned our Svachene. The Reception after the Divine Liturgy on May 2nd will be held at the Church Hall for all parishioners attending the Divine Liturgy. No tickets will be sold for this. Mark your calendar for this day to have a great attendance for Metropolitan Soroka.

HOLY WEEK AND EASTER: Please be cooperative in the preparation of the events during this Holy Season. Mike Sinko will set up for the procession on Good Friday and Easter Services. If you can possibly spend some time for The Adoration of the Grave for Good Friday and Holy Saturday please sign the chart in the vestibule. One hour of Adoration is all that is asked of you. Let’s try and fill the chart so the same person does not have to spend two or three hours.
