Dear Saint Katherine Family,

We will be very busy the next 7 days! Just check out the schedule grid in your bulletin. A lot going on! Hope you can join us.

But first a salute to our veterans. God bless you gentlemen (and ladies) who answered the call to serve our country in the armed forces. Thank you for your service!

Lots of services to nurture your souls this week. Orthros / Divine Liturgy at the usual times (9AM/10AM)

As we are just about to enter the official “holiday” season, I wanted to draw your attention to the attached St. Katherine Christmas Card Sponsor form. Be a sponsor, help spread the good cheer as we send our annual Christmas greeting card to the entire parish community.

Remember to sign up for your portrait session for the new parish directory! We want everyone to be pictured in it so don’t delay in booking your portrait appointment. Each family that sits for a portrait will receive a complimentary 8x10 color portrait photo as well as complimentary copy of the new directory once it is available (early 2020). The professional photographers will also be offering various portrait packages for sale, just in time for the holidays. Book your photo session online by visiting the church’s website www.stkatherinegoc.org and clicking the LifeTouch Portrait ad/banner.

Wishing you a blessed weekend and week ahead.

With the help of the office volunteers,

Tom A. Bouras
Office Manager
