Weekly Sunday Bulletin – 17th Sunday of Luke

Stewardship

We thank the 195 stewards who have pledged for 2014.

Thank you

Thank you to all of our wonderful parishioners who tirelessly volunteered to make this year’s festival successful.

Our patrons enjoyed the delicious food, the energetic dancing and our warm hospitality.

Thank you all for your stewardship of time.

To our Festival Leaders and Committee Members:

I want to thank you for the incredible showing of hard work, leadership, patience and warmth to our guests that you exhibited this past weekend and the weeks prior to the Festival. St. Demetrios has benefited from your commitment of time and talent by hosting the most successful Festival ever for us. We shattered records for gross revenue for Friday and Saturday nights and for the overall Festival. We are tabulating our expenses so it will be awhile before we know what our net revenue is but we expect it to minimally exceed the budgeted amount.

On February 27th, Thursday, we will hold an “Evening of Gratitude for our Festival Volunteers.” Details will follow but we want to come together and celebrate our efforts and results. Please be sure to hold the date.

I want to thank Fr. Christopher in his vision and leadership in exhorting all of us to produce the best Festival ever. Fr. John and church staff – Pauline, Kiki, Susan and Joseph – held us altogether as they balanced their responsibilities as well as the numerous details to make this event a success.

Finally, I want to thank you for the opportunity to serve St. Demetrios.

Thank you as always for your continued support.

Best regards,

Jim
