Weekly Sunday Bulletin – Sunday of Thomas


We thank the 280 Stewards who have pledged for 2015.

From God every family in heaven and on earth is named. Ephesians 3:15

Renew your commitment of time, talent and treasure today!

You may do so by filling out a pledge card, visiting our website,

www.stdemetrios.org/our-parish/stewardship/ or calling the office at (954) 467-1515.

 Often in life, we pursue and collect those things that do not last.  We must ask, “One hundred years from now, where will our possessions be?”

Our greatest blessings are our family and our church family.

As Orthodox Christians, we are called to be stewards of these great gifts.

If we are faithful to this calling, perhaps our Lord will say to us,

“Well done good and faithful servant” (Mt 25:23)

May our Lord richly bless you and your family in all your endeavors.
