ARCHDIOCESE CONVENTION

Eight days from now the Archdiocese Convention will kick-off and great memories will be made as the entire Archdiocese offers thanks to His Grace Bishop ANTOUN on a lifetime of service and eight decades of love, humility, and sunshine! His Grace will officially retire at the close of the Convention. Visit AC2017Miami.org for more info.



Baking Bread

We are looking for a few good bakers to join our team. Each week a member of the parish bakes the holy bread / prosphora / khurban, which is used for the Divine Litury. We have recipes, seals and veteran bakers who will show you how it works. Please see Father Joseph or Emily Pappas.



SALAD DRESSING SALES

Have you run out of salad dressing and marinade? It is the perfect blend for your homemade salad or to rub on shrimp and chicken before your grill. If you have run out you can pick up a jar at church on Sunday mornings. Or you may see our team of ladies selling Sittee's Savory Kitchen Salad Dressing at Farmer's Markets in the area. Just yesterday they were in Walpole.

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.



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.
