National Church Music Sunday
 
In his sermon on Sunday, October 5, 2014, Fr. George highlighted the vital ministry of our Choir Members & Chantors, and offered a special prayer blessing their efforts. He also noted that some of our choir members and chantors could not join us on that day, but as a parish family, we all appreciated the sacrifices they made for our parish worship services. Thanks to all of them!

We thank Alexandra Tagalos for her continual efforts to sew and offer our parish so many beautiful Altar linens/vestments that she has made with loving care and devotion to God and His Holy Church. After rolling spanakopites on Saturday, she helped Fr. George lay out this lovely red set. Glory and thanksgiving to God for Alexandra and all of our parishioners who have and are offering their unique and creative gifts that our Lord has provided them in support of our St. Christopher Church. We thank each of them and pray for God's blessings in their lives, today and always.
