2018 Pre-Lenten Retreat and Youth Day

It seems we just finished Christmas and New Year and now are already looking ahead to Great Lent. It is early this year: Pascha is April 8th (April 1st in the Western churches.) As always there is no better way to enter into this holy season than by treating yourself to a few hours away from the world. The New England Pre- Lenten retreat is Saturday, February 10th in Dedham. The featured speaker is His Grace Bishop ANTHONY (from the Diocese of Toledo.) Registration forms are available in the parish hall.
And: His Grace will be with us here in Norwood on Sunday, the 11th for Liturgy.



STEWARDSHIP

Thanks to those who returned their 2018 Stewardship forms (either the printed sheet or by going to our website and setting up electronic payments.) Eighty-three members have taken care of business; the average gift is $954. Statements for 2017 have been emailed (and printed for those without computers.)



THEOPHANY HOME BLESSINGS

The days following Theophany are the traditional time to invite the priest to bless you home. Speak with Father Joseph at coffee hour or email him to find a time that works for you and your family.



Building Committee

The schematic phase of the architect and engineers work on our building project has been completed. The building committee met at Studio Troika earlier this month to review the work. This phase included dimensions of the space, heating, cooling, plumbing ... Now the design phase begins, which is a bit more exciting. We will of course, keep everyone apprised as information and sketches become available.



BULLETIN PAPER

Did you see the photos of our parish office? During the blizzard on January 4th, a heating pipe burst. Fortunately it was quickly discovered or the parish house basement might have become a swimming pool. However, the copy machine, bulletin paper and a lot of other items were lost in the flood. The electrical and plumbing are back in order, the insurance adjusters have inspected and we are now waiting to begin some rehab work. We may put out a call for some help.



2018 CALENDARS

Make sure you have a Saint George calendar for the new year; the iconography is by Kh. Erin and focuses on the Psalms. There is one for each family. The calendar includes feasts, saints and Scripture readings for each day, plus fasting notes and room to write in your appointments.



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.
