Volunteers are still needed to mow the lawn for the weeks beginning: August 19 & September 9
A sign-up sheet for mowing the lawn is located on the bulletin board in the narthex. Please take time to put your name down to volunteer.
PLEASE NOTE: If using a gas or electric mower the City of Edmonton has asked us not to mow the lawn before 7:00 a.m. or after 10:00 p.m., Mondays to Saturdays and before 9:00 a.m. or after 7:00 p.m., Sundays and holidays.
Sunday Greeters Needed!
We are in need of Sunday greeters. If you are over 16 years of age and want to be a greeter, please contact Don Fushtey at 780-436-9793 or Fr Vincent or talk to one of us on Sunday. You will be greeting with another experienced greeter once every six weeks. This is considered a ministry so you need to have some knowledge of the Orthodox Church. Thanks in advance for your consideration to help out!
- Love in Christ, Don
ATTENTION: Coffee Hour Teams
Please ensure the coffee maker is turned off, coffee grounds removed and the coffee maker is cleaned at the end of each coffee hour.
Starting on Thursday, September 5 (7-9 PM), and continuing for 8 weeks, Fr. Vincent will be leading another Orthodoxy 101 group study. This is our 10th time offering this class, with over 135 people having taken the class already. This group is ideal not only for Orthodox who would like to deepen their understanding of their Orthodox Faith, but is also a great introduction to the Faith for any non-Orthodox who would like to understand a bit more about the Orthodox Church (what it believes and teaches, and why). There will be a fee of $20 to cover the cost of your book and materials. Those who have previously taken the class are welcome to join in again. Please sign up on the bulletin board (below the poster) in the narthex to let Fr. Vincent know you would like to attend.

O glorious Ezekiel, inspired by God,
you received a scroll, sweeter than honey in your mouth from the Almighty
and were given knowledge in things divine.
Beholding and contemplating God,
you were a herald of holy mysteries,
offering the resentful assembly compassion from God.
(Stichera from Great Vespers)
