The Sacrament of Holy Confession may be scheduled by appointment by contacting Fr. Michael.
STEWARDSHIP is an important part of our Orthodox Christian Faith. Every member of the Church is expected to contribute and fulfill their financial responsibility to the Church. A minimum pledge of $400.00 per annum is expected for a family (i.e. a husband and a wife, or father, mother, and children).
A minimum pledge of $200 per annum is expected of a single adult. If a single adult has one or more children, he or she is expected to contribute the family rate of $400 per annum. Individuals with financial hardship, who can not pay the minimum expected stewardship, are urged to speak to the parish priest, Fr. Michael.
Sacraments, such as Holy Baptism and Holy Matrimony, are performed by the parish priest for parishioners who are in good financial stewardship standing. Parishioners must complete a form requesting the sacrament be performed. All dates are to be approved by the Parish Priest. The Parish Priest, as the Bishop's representative, is the supreme convening authority as to whether a sacrament is performed for an individual. The priest will direct an individual to provide a note from the parish council president or vice-president confirming that they are in good stewardship standing before the sacrament is scheduled.

**SUMMER IS HERE**
Please be advised that the 2 air conditioning units in the front of the church will be set at 70 degrees and will remain on throughout the services for the remainder of the summer season. This is the same temperature the church heat is set at during the winter months. The two units in the back may be turned off as the need arises; the units in the front will remain on and will not be altered. Please do not interrupt the services regarding the front units. The altar area contains hot spotlights, candles, burning charcoal, and other sources of heat which make it exceptionally warm when combined with the vestments worn. Parishioners are welcome to bring a sweater if there are any concerns.
