Iconography Update January 2014

This is our latest update with those who have pledged and given for our new Iconography/Hall Renovation Project.

Dear Parishioners,

On behalf of our Parish Council, Hall Renovation and Iconography Committee we wanted to give you an update on our latest sacred endeavors. First, as you can see from the inside of the Church, the iconography project is moving along wonderfully. Our iconographer will be returning in the next few weeks to add more icons that have been donated. We have heard so many positive responses to this project and true evidence of its reception is the almost $300,000 that has been committed to it in donations. Part of which goes to renovate the large hall.

View the video that introduced you to the effort, “This is my Church, what is it to you?” I am sure after seeing it you too will want to join the people listed here and make your commitment to completing the iconography of our Church in preparation for the Consecration of our Sanctuary.

As for the hall project the Parish Council has authorized that the necessary drawings for the renovation of the kitchen, including the small hall, be done as soon as possible. It is our prayer to begin this part of the project sometime after Pascha this year.

The Lord continues to shower our community with so many blessings. Thank you for your support. If you want to donate to this sacred and once in a life time project please speak to one of us.

In Christ,

Fr. Chris Metropulos

John Ioannou Jr. – Parish Council President
