Sisterhood news 

Time seems to fly by so quickly!  Christmas is just around the corner. Please set aside Tuesday, December 10th for the cleaning of the Church, at 9:30 am.   We can use everyone's help even if you can only donate an hour or two of your time for that day. Dusting, removing wax from the candle stands,  polishing the woodwork, cleaning the altar pieces, vacuuming the rugs, etc. is scheduled.  Lunch will be served.  The Sisterhood will have a meeting on December 8th, following the lunch buffet to discuss the celebration of the Nativity Feast.  All ladies are invited. After the Nativity Eve Vigil we will serve traditional kutia,  compote, cookies, coffee, tea and wine.  Everyone is welcome to join us in the Parish Hall.  This will be celebrated on both the New and Old Calendars.

Thank you to all those who took time to come and clean the church for the Nativity Feast. The numbers were few, but much was accomplished. The candle stands gleam, the wood shines, the brass and silver pieces sparkle.  We sincerely appreciate all the effort that was put into this bi-annual event.

   The dishwasher in the kitchen was repaired and updated. A special pump was installed. We are now able to have the correct amount of soap and rinse chemicals added automatically at every wash cycle. We are pleased that we did not have to replace the washing machine because the cost is very expensive.

We are still providing a variety of dishes for the Sunday Buffet. During the rest of the summer, we might vary the menu because of the hot weather. On occasion we may serve only piroshki and soup or just salads. As you know all the proceeds go to help the Cathedral.
