Fellowship Hour is being hosted today in loving memory of Fr. Bill by Parish Council and the ministries of the church.

 In Loving Memory of Fr. Bill…With hearts filled with emotion from the loving memories of a life time we came today to pray to God and honor the memory of Father Bill, our beloved spiritual father whose blessings we will carry forever deep in our hearts as a valuable treasure! We invite everyone to please remain afterwards for Fellowship Hour.

 Heartfelt Thanks...to the outgoing PTO headed by its President, Mrs. Marika Panton, and all its officers and members for their dedication, commitment, and hard work to support the education of our young people. For a job well done may the Lord our God bestow upon them His many blessings!  Congratulations to the newly elected 2018-2020 Holy Apostles Greek School PTO Board: Tina Sparagis, President; Maria Tsagaris, 1st Vice President; Eleni Poteres & Vicki Thiakos, Treasurers; Stephanie Coumas, Corresponding Secretary; Board Members Effie Kyroudis, Athena Reed, Aleka Mandalaris; Marika Panton, Advisor. Blessings to all of them for an exciting and prosperous upcoming term. 

Cemetery Plots...One of our parishioners is looking to sell two plots previously bought in the Garden of Ascension. If interested to purchase them please call the church office.

 Fellowship Hour...Please, consider hosting a Sunday or share one with a few friends. Available Sundays are: May 27, and all Sundays in July. There are also two more opportunities to host Fellowship Hour in August: Sunday 5 and 12.

Sunday School…Today is the last day of Sunday School classes. Please take some time to thank your children’s teacher. Out of their love for God and the Church, they devote the entire school year to teaching and educating our children in our Holy Orthodox Christian faith. Even though Sunday School is finished, church is open all year long! Our children learn their faith best by attending and praying in church. We look forward to seeing you and your families throughout the summer!

 Vacation Bible School...will be held from June 11 to June 15. Vacation Bible School is open to all children who turned 3 last September up to 5th graders who have completed their 5th grade year. Only 20 per class. Sign up now in the multipurpose room or on line: holyapostleschurch.com. Do you want to volunteer? We need you! Anyone from completed 6th graders on up, please apply!
