St. Peter the Aleut Orthodox Summer Camp

Volunteers are needed to help staff St. Peter the Aleut Orthodox Summer Camp this year. Of special need this summer are kitchen staff, a head cook and female counseling staff. The deadline for staff applications is Sunday, May 21st. Applications can be found in the narthex. Camp registration forms are now available in the narthex as well. The deadline for registrations are July 16th, but if you register before June 25 you can take $25 off the registration fee.

Parish Group Photo / 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.

In addition to this, directly following the Divine Liturgy on Sunday, June 18, 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 on the retake day of Sunday, June 25, we will simply switch the photo to being an indoor one.

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