Summer Camp starts tomorrow…
This camp is offered as a way for our young people to further engage their faith and build relationships with others. There are many activities and workshops that will imprint the Christian ethos on their minds and hearts. This is a wonderful and unique opportunity for our youth to experience Christ and our Orthodox faith alongside their friends, peers, and mentors.
Summer Camp Diakonia
At St. Demetrios Summer Camp, campers are given the opportunity to explore different ways of giving back to their communities, both locally and at large. This year they will be assembling emergency baby kits, which in areas of extreme poverty or following natural disasters, help mothers care for their newborn babies. We are looking to the community to help bring in donations until June 19th to complete the kits.
One kit includes the following items: six cloth diapers, two t-shirts or undershirts (no onesies), two washcloths, two gowns or sleepers, two diaper pins, one sweater or sweatshirt (can be hand knitted or crocheted), two receiving blankets (one can be hand knitted or crocheted baby blanket). Items must be new and under 12 months in size. Items will be wrapped inside one of the receiving blankets and secured with both diaper pins.
Language and Culture Program
The Language and Culture Program announces with deep gratitude that Dr. and Mrs. Marinos Hionis have given an UNSOLICITED donation toward the reorganization of the Greek School. In addition, Dr. Hionis pledged to offer each year $1,000.00 to the graduating student with the highest achievement in the Greek Language!!!
Everyone who is involved in teaching our children the Greek Language, the language of the theology of Christianity, is at a loss for words. All we can say to Dr. and Mrs. Hionis is “Thank you, we will try to justify your faith in us.”
