We owe to the Holy Apostles the priceless treasure of the Christian faith. They handed Christ’s teachings down to us. From them, we received the Holy Gospels and the letters of the Apostles. They laid a firm foundation for the Church of Christ. This is a Holy Day of Obligation and Liturgy is Saturday, June 29th at 6:00 PM. Please attend this Liturgy, as it is the namesake of our Parish. A fellowship social for all parishioners will be held in the Church Hall after the Divine Liturgy. No Liturgy will be celebrated on Sunday, June 30th.

BUILDING/IMPROVEMENT FUND: Your donations to the
Building/Improvement Fund has been put to good use. The Landscaping in front of the church $2370 and the new lines constructed on the parking lot $560 have been completed. Thanks to those who generously donate to this fund.

DESSERTS: If you would like to donate a dessert for the SS Peter & Paul Social to be held next Saturday, it will certainly be appreciated.
