Letter from St. Katherine Office

(Sent in email to St. Katherine Community dated 7/5/19)

Dear Saint Katherine Family,

Hope you enjoyed the 4th of July holiday! It seems that quality of backyard fireworks has drastically improved in recent years… you don’t really even need to go to a professional show to see some very satisfying pyrotechnics!

We are heading into the last leg… the mad dash towards FESTIVAL! Full speed ahead! Fences will go up on Monday, lots of baking still needs to get done, booths will get set up and stocked.  A LOT to do.  Don’t be shy, come on down and help. Check out the bulletin schedule for times and opportunities to help out. Please return the attached volunteer registration form ASAP or contact Andrea Ballas directly.

ATTENTION! Monday (at 12 noon) is the absolute deadline to sponsor a festival food ingredient and still get your name recognized on the sponsors’ poster. Any last minute sponsor “hold-outs” should contact the office ASAP. See the attached ingredients list for items still needing a kind benefactor. Don’t let the big price tag of any item scare you off, partial sponsorships ($250 minimum) on any item still available are more than welcome.

Despite the sense of urgency around here we can slow down enough to recognize and celebrate any upcoming name days. Chronia Polla (many years!) to all of you celebrating.

  • Sun   – 7/07 – Kyriaki the Great Martyr
  • Mon – 7/08 – Prokopios the Great Martyr
  • Thu   – 7-11 – St. Olga, Equal to the Apostles

Vacation Bible School is just around the corner, don’t forget to sign up your children for this “always fun” summertime event. VBS Reg forms are attached.

Wishing you a blessed weekend and week ahead.

With the help of the office volunteers,

Tom A. Bouras
Office Manager
