Saying Goodbye to Our Beloved Father Bill on His Final Journey...

Christ is Risen... granting hope to those in the tomb! 
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we inform you that our beloved Father Bill reposed in the Risen Lord last night. 
Father Bill's true love for the Faith and the parishioners, his leadership, charisma and vision, touched all of us and many more in the 55 years of the life of our Holy Apostles Church.
Please lift your hearts up in prayer for Father Bill's eternal repose.  Please also pray for Presbytera Effie, their children and grandchildren, that the Lord surrounds them in His comforting and peaceful embrace.
The wake and funeral arrangements for Father Bill are as follows:
Father Bill will lie in state at Holy Apostles Church on Thursday, May 7th from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The Trisagion will begin at 7:00 p.m.
On Friday, May 8th, Orthros will begin at 8:00 a.m. followed by Divine Liturgy at 9:00 a.m.
The funeral service will begin at 11:00 a.m.
The interment will be private.

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!
