News & Upcoming Events

Fellowship Hour

The Fellowship Hour is a favorite tradition of our church and is held each Sunday directly after the Liturgy in the family room.  It's a time of offering hospitality to everyone with beverages, coffee, snacks, breakfast and brunch treats.  Fellowship Hour offers us an opportunity to pause for a while from our busy schedules and catch up with each other, chat and visit with old and new friends while building and strengthening Christian Fellowship.

The church is asking for all of us to participate in this tradition by hosting a Fellowship Hour one Sunday of the year.  It is recommended that you share the responsibilities with other friends and family.  You will find the details on our website by clicking on the "Fellowship Hour" link or you may call the church office at (708) 562-2744.  The Sundays that are available are listed on the "sign up sheet" located on the wall by the kitchen door.

Thank you in advance for your participation!

Adventure Theater Easter Play and Luncheon--Sunday, April 19th

On Sunday, April 19th immediately following the Divine Liturgy, the Adventure Theater is presenting their perfromance of Pedimoo in the family room, preceded by a delicious luncheon. 

A $10.00 donation covers both the luncheon and play.  Make your reservations following the Liturgy or email Mr. D at (708) 562-0869 or

The play is a dramatisation of an exciting and heartwarming story about an orphan boy named Pedimoo.  He has no memory of his family, and the only connection to them he has is a gold cross with Greek letters engraved on it.  Will this cross, a dog names Lazarus, and a girl named Katie bring his years of wandering to an end?  Come and find out!
