Hello St. Hermanites.
As some of you may have heard in church last Sunday, we had hoped to hold a Prosphora making workshop at the church this Saturday, October 19 from 12:00 - 3:30ish.
Unfortunately, there has not been a lot of feedback which makes it incredibly difficult to prepare, aside from a number of members who are interested identifying they are otherwise engaged that day.
That said, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know before Saturday if you will be attending so the appropriate arrangements can be made.
Otherwise the event will have to be cancelled.
Thank you for your consideration

panikhida at Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church in Vancouver at 7PM
The funeral service will be held at Holy Resurrection on THURSDAY at 10 AM
Your prayers are appreciated.

Come and celebrate the birth of another Green baby! The party will be in the common room at my complex (5163 - 203 Street - Langley), after church (so around 12:00-ish). Please bring food to share.
There is a playground for the kids, but it's not completely fenced off so parents will still need to keep an eye on their kids. Parking is on the road or in the parking lot across the street from the complex.

There are a few things that they still need. I will be collecting for a group gift (a rain cover for their stroller. It must be very specific so it fits properly) so if you want to contribute to that see me on Sunday. They also need a place to put the baby cloths. A tall narrow dress would be good.They don't have room for a wide one.

There will be a poster at church as well - on the bulletin board - if you are having difficulty pulling up the shower details from here.
Hope to see you there as we celebrate the commencement of a new life for Miss (soon to be Mrs!!) Kelsy.

Here's the deal:

Abby bible study tomorrow at 6pm. Most people know where it is but just in case. Thanks!

When the camp cancellation letter went out, there were a number of responses including a plea to rally together and make it work this year. The board met with a number of priests and other individuals to come up with a plan. Father Justin, camp priest, laid out the requirements for camp to move forward:
1. We must have all staffing positions applied for and
approved and with criminal record checks in progress
by Sunday, June 9th.
If we don't, camp will not proceed.
Here's what we need:
- Cook and kitchen staff (4 people)
- Counselors (age 20+: 8-10 people)
- Junior counselors (age 17-19: 4-6 people)
- Lifeguard (1 person)
- Nurse/first aid (1 person)
- Workshop leaders (2-3 people)
2. We need at least forty campers signed up for camp - or equivalent donations received for any less than that -
by Sunday, June 16th or camp will not be able to go forward.
We know these deadlines are tight - and the number of people still needed is challenging - but with all the good-will and those who are already stepping forward, we think it is still possible to go ahead with camp and to run it safely and responsibly... if all the above requirements (deadlines and numbers) are met.
So, if any of you feel you can help fulfill Part 1, or know someone who can, please let us know ASAP!

Normally this annual event is on the last Saturday in July, but that date will be a wedding this year.
Vespers on July 20th will be at the BBQ instead of at church.
More details will be posted later on.

I know this is short notice and should've been posted here earlier. I'm told there will in fact be a reader's Vespers service at the church tonight at 6:30!
So all of you who have been thinking, golly, my evenings are dull after Holy Week and Pascha - here's your answer!

This coming Saturday is our Annual cleaning Bee to get the church in top shape for Holy Week and Pascha. This year there will also be a special time for children. Hopefully this will allow some parents to participate in the cleaning while their children are looked after.
If your interested in helping with the children's side of the day, please contact Zane. If your interested in the cleaning side of the day, just show up with work clothes, rain coats, and any tools you may want to bring. If you are planning on staying the day,
The day's schedule will look something like: Matins will be about 15-20 mintues, if even that. Then general duties will be assigned for the clean up. Clean up will go for about 2-3 hours until lunch time. Then continue through the afternoon until projects are completed. Please bring rain coats and work clothes. The more help the better!!!
The kids time will last from 10AM to around 2:30PM with a break for lunch.
For this kids portion: We have a very special time planned.
***The children will get a chance to see some of the liturgical items that are kept behind the alter.***
This is a once a YEAR chance to see these things. Fr. Lawrence will be explaining to the children what the items are. There will also be a prosphora explanation. We will have story time, colouring, some crafts, and weather depending some outside time...

It has been brought to my attention that I have neglected to make everyone aware of and welcome at the latest Gascoigne event. We are throwing a proper shindig in celebration of the birth of our third child this coming Sunday the 24th at roughly 2pm (ie after liturgy, but we're not fussed if you turn up earlier). As with almost all Gascoigne events EVERYONE IS WELCOME, kiddies, husbands, and crazy relations etc and we will feed you all. It will, however be BYOB, and we will have a selection of non alcoholic drinks as well. Food will be fasting, except for one or two items and if you wish to contribute, more is always welcome, although we will ensure no one goes hungry. This is not a baby shower either so please don't feel obliged to bring anything but your lovely self.
Hope to see you here!
