Letter from St. Katherine Office
(From and email sent to the St. Katherine's Community dated 9/13/19)
Dear Saint Katherine Family,
Full speed ahead! Most of our parish ministry activities have already begun or will begin this week. Welcome back everyone!
The Ecclesiastical New Year is all off to quick start with two of the twelve major feastdays of the calendar falling in the first two weeks! Last Sunday, we celebrated the Nativity of the Holy Theotokos; tomorrow (Sat 9/14) we will celebrate the Feast of the Holy Cross (a strict fast) with Orthros at 9AM/Liturgy 10AM. All those named after the Holy Cross celebrate tomorrow (Stavros, Stavroula, etc.) We wish you a blessed and happy name day! Chronia Polla!
You can read more about the Universal Exaltation of the Holy and Life-creating Cross at: https://www.goarch.org/exaltation
We also extend warmest name-day greetings to all those who will celebrate in the coming days:
- Fri - 9/13 – Aristides and Cornelius (Cornell)
- Sun - 9/15 – Great Martyr Nikitas
- Tue - 9/17 – Martyrs Faith (Pistis/Vera), Hope (Elpitha), Love (Agape) and their mother Sophia. (Theirs is a touching story: http://ww1.antiochian.org/node/16753) and also Olivia.
Save the date - Sunday, September 28 our beloved South Bay sister parish of St. Matthew in Torrance will host the South Bay Falafel Festival (see attached flyer for more details)
Wishing you a blessed weekend and week ahead.
With the help of the office volunteers,
Tom A. Bouras
