St. Spyridon

O Father, God-bearer, Spyridon, you were proven a champion and Wonder Worker of the First Ecumenical Council. You spoke to the girl in the grave and turned the serpent to gold. And, when chanting your prayers, most sacred One, angels ministered with you. Glory to Him who glorified you; glory to Him who crowned you; glory to Him who, through you, works healing for all

Presidents Message

We wanted to share with you the remarks of John Ioannou Jr., our New Parish Council President, as stated during our General Assembly on Sunday, June 2nd.

President Remarks

My remarks are about gratitude.

I have been on the Parish Council now for 9 years and during that time I have met many amazing people who have given to the Church on countless occasions and in countless ways of their time, talent, and treasure, not to gain recognition for themselves, but for the simple love of the Church, the faith and of our community – and to those people, many of whom are here today, I say thank you.

Not that you need it or even want it, but as a small way to show you that the Church appreciates all you have done, all you are currently doing, and all that you will do in the future.

Regarding the future, we have a lot of exciting things coming up such as the Church renovation project which includes the new Icons, Narthax and Altar; hall renovation project which includes the kitchen, small hall, bar, and eventually the large hall; and purchase of the property to the south of the Church.

We also have some not so exciting things coming up such as needed repairs to the Church roof and dome, and upgrading our landscaping.

But regardless of the exciting things or not so exciting things coming up, one thing I know that I will be able to count on as President is the love and support of the St. Demetrios family, and that is what I am most grateful for. So for that I say thank you as well. And I will end with a quote about gratitude.

“Let us be grateful for each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
And for everything God sends.”

John Ioannou, Jr., Esq.
