Father George conducted a ceremony to honor our St. Demetrios Church Choir on Sunday, October 28th. Each choir member was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation and gift to demonstrate our gratitude for their service every Sunday, under the direction of Irene Pakis. They add a deeper spiritual meaning to our Divine Liturgy through their melodious voices and hymns. May they all continue to serve our Lord through their talents and commitment to our church for many years to come.
Parishioners of all ages enjoyed our Annual Church Dance. Father George opened the event with a special blessing and President Marina welcomed everyone. A bountiful buffet menu that was entirely donated fulfilled everyone’s appetites. Music was provided by the Stavros Theodorou Greek Band that inspired dancing and singing-along for hours on end. Several donated Gift Baskets were raffled to the delight of the winners. President, Marina Corodemus, presented a 360° video of the interior and exterior of our Church property. It was a wonderful, well-attended event that provided time to relax and enjoy each other’s company in a social atmosphere. There were numerous requests to do this more often!
