“STEWARDSHIP SUNDAY” was last Sunday, November 21st.  Everyone was mailed a Stewardship Package that had your 2021 information concerning stewardship; if you have paid in full, if you are still paying and those who have not contributed yet for the 2021 year.  We, also, ask that you please fill out your Stewardship Pledge for 2022 with careful and prayerful consideration and please return it to the Church Office. If you have not pledged or given anything for 2021, we ask that you please consider donating and thus helping the House of the Lord. Also, since these are days that we support financially different charities, we should support the Cathedral as the Church should be our charity priority.
 
Christmas Flowers:  Please see the form that is included with this email or in the Church to make your donation in memory of…. or for the health of…for the Christmas poinsettia flowers that will decorate our Church.  All contributors will be mentioned in the January Source. Thank you.
 
Christmas Fast 40-Day Liturgies:  We are having our everyday Liturgies during the Christmas Fast. We have Orthros Service at 7:45am and Divine Liturgy at 8:30am except for the feast days and Sundays that are mentioned in the SOURCE Calendar or in the announcement page. This is a special opportunity to give the names of the living and deceased to be remembered for all the 40 days at the Oblation Table. Please make an extra effort to attend these services and pray for your beloved family members. Also, please fill out the form with your names and give it to the clergy.
“When the Priest cuts out sections of bread and commemorates the names of the faithful (living and deceased) during the prothesis (preparation of the gifts before Divine Liturgy begins), an angel of the Lord descends and takes this commemoration and places it before the throne of Christ as a prayer for those commemorated”.  St. Iakovos Tsalikis of Evia
 
If you are still cautious to come to Church on Sundays, you may wish to come during the weekdays when we have these daily Divine Liturgies before Christmas. There are fewer people in Church, and this would be more favorable especially for our beloved Senior Citizens. Please check with the December Calendars for times.
 
Stewardship Pledges for 2021: We would like to thank all those who generously have responded with their stewardship contribution to the Church. We thank our 77% families who up to October29, 2021, have pledged and contributed for 2021 year bringing to a total of actual contributions to $364,283.  Great progress for a good Stewardship year. May the blessings of the Lord always be with all of you and with our families keeping all safe, healthy, and spiritually strong. Thank you for generously supporting the Cathedral.
 
Bookstore news:   The Bookstore is open on Sundays after church. This is a special ministry in our Cathedral. There are many wonderful books, icons and other items that you may wish to buy for your home or give as gifts ESPECIALLY NOW DURING CHRISTMAS. Please come by and see our bookstore.
