The Parish of Holy Apostles Wishes
to All Its Parishioners a Happy Thanksgiving!
News & Upcoming Events
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!

Sessions begin promptly at 7:15 p.m. and conclude around 8:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to join us.
You are all invited to attend the Adventure Theater Play, "The Cousins' Christmas" that will take place in the multipurpose room on Sunay, December 6th. Luncheon to precede the play. Donation: $10.00. RSVP to Mr. D. at (708) 562-0869 or email him at email@example.com.
