Parish Group Photo – TODAY, Sunday, June 25

Photo Book Pictures

The time has come again to take an updated parish group photo, as well as create another parish photo book. Matushka Roxanne Isaac will be taking family photos every Sunday from 12 – 12:45 outside during the month of June. There will be a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in 5 minute allotments. If there are enough people signed up to fill all of the allotted times, extensions in times may be granted as necessary on certain days to fulfill the need. The family photo sessions will be free of charge, and you may request the edited photo via email to keep and use as you wish. There will also be a "retake" day on Saturday, July 8 from 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm.

In addition to this, directly following the Divine Liturgy on Sunday, June 25, there will be a parish group photo outside in the backyard, cascading down the hill. If the weather does not cooperate on this day, we will attempt to take the photo the next Sunday. If for some reason, the weather does not cooperate, we will simply switch the photo to being an indoor one.

There will be a few pages dedicated to advertising in the book. If you are a regular attendee of St. Herman's, and own your own business, you may submit an ad. It will be 1/6 - 1/8 of a page, so keep that in mind when you are submitting an image. If you like, you may submit a business card to Mtk. Roxanne instead, who will scan it and format it instead.

Please call, text or email Matushka Roxanne with any questions or concerns. (H) 780-452-4615, (C) 780-221-0881, roxanneisaac@gmail.com

Wedding

Jamie & Erin would like to cordially invite all parishioners of St. Herman Sobor to attend their wedding ceremony on Sunday, July 2 @ 4:00 pm. (Reception by invitation only)

Our Boat Sank!

Last month, Subdeacon Basil (Mark) Northey was visiting with us from the St. John in the Wilderness Orthodox Mission Station in the wilds of BC. While here, he was sharing how their boat, which was the primary means of them reaching their Mission, sank during Great Lent of this year. They are now in the process of raising funds to help purchase another "parish boat". You will find more details about this Mission, and their needs, on the display cabinet in the narthex. Please read through it and help them if you are able to.
