Kolácsi: The third and final kolácsi baking for this year will be on Saturday, October 10th, beginning at 9:00 am.

We are in need of many extra hands (young, old, men, women) particularly for the latter cooling, storing, and cleaning up phase of the project beginning around 12:00 Noon.

The holyday Divine Liturgy will be celebrated on Thursday morning at 10:00 AM.
