Christ is risen! Truly, He is risen!
!المسيح قام! حقا قام
Χριστὸς ἀνέστη! Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη!
Христос воскресе! Воистину воскресе!
Hristos a înviat! Adevărat a înviat!
Քրիստոս հարյա՜վ ի մեռելոց: Օրհնյա՜լ է Հարությունը Քրիստոսի!
¡Cristo ha resucitado! ¡En verdad ha resucitado!

Food For Hungry People

If you have not yet returned your Lenten alms box, please return it by next week so that the funds may be forwarded.



From Father Anthony at AV

Local authorities are seeking to remove the Antiochian Village’s tax exempt status in order to collect property tax from us. If they succeed, this will seriously cripple the ministry of the Antiochian Village, both for the Camp and the Retreat Center. If you are willing, we need you to write a letter in support of the Antiochian Village. I am writing to you with the hope that you can emphasize how the village benefits the spiritual health and spiritual wellbeing of you, your family, your fellow parishioners, etc, if this in fact is the case. Any testimony that you can provide is appreciated.

Please address your letter to: Honorable Board of Assessment Appeals. You can send your letter to one of our attorneys, Nathan Catanese via email to ncatanese@williamscoulson.com or you can mail it
to: Nathan Catanese, c/o Williams Coulson, LLC
One Gateway Center, 16th Floor
420 Duquesne Blvd.
Pittsburgh, PA 15222
The letters need to be at the attorneys’ office by May 1st. If possible, would you please send me a copy of the letter as well franthony@avcamp.org.



Building Fund

We have introduced the Designated Donation part of our campaign. Major areas of the project have pre-set minimums which individuals, families or even a few families working together can donate. These donors, and the loved ones they are remembering, will be honored with a plaque which will be in keeping with the dignity of the project and church. Information about Designated Donations is available today in the parish hall and on our website.



BUILDING RENOVATION AND EXPANSION

In answer to requests from those at the annual meeting, a new flyer has been printed showing an overview of the project, its costs and funding. These were put in the mail this past week and an additional copy is enclosed with this bulletin so that you may pass it on to family and friends who are interested in our building campaign. Information about Designated Donations can be found in the parish hall.



New Building Renovation Design

The Parish Council and Building Committee are pleased to share the updated sketches for our renovation and expansion project.

We are grateful for our generous donors. We are now offering everyone the opportunity to contribute a dedicated donation. If you and your family (or several) families are moved to dedicate a portion of this project in honor or memory of a loved one, please click here for the details.

Your prayers and support are much appreciated.

The Parish Life Conference for the Diocese will take place at the Cathedral in Worcester on June 17th and the 23-25th. Schedules, registration and sponsorship information are available in the parish hall and on line: http://www.antiochianevents. This means it is time to think about the Bible Bowl and Oratorical festival.



Sittee's Savory Kitchen

Need a stocking stuffer or hostess gift this season? Give our parish's salad dressing and marinade: Jars and refills are available at coffee hour and on line at SitteesSavoryKitchen.com What a great stocking stuffer! Proceeds are all going to our building fund.

The Mission Statement (from the lid of the jar):
Sittee is "my grandmother" - one of countless women who, as the backbone of our community, used their culinary talents to help build and sustain our church. Sittee's Savory Kitchen honors these beloved women and their legacy by giving all proceeds to the Building Fund.

The Archdiocese Convention is July 23-30 in Miami and hotel registration is open. The Convention website is www.AC2017Miami.org.

The Convention and Conference Theme for 2017 will be: My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations. (Mark11:17) That is also the theme for the Oratorical Festival.
