FATHER NICOLAS' MESSAGE

My Beloved Friends and Parishioners of the Saint Spyridon family,

It was heartwarming to see so many of you on August 15 for the Feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos. Thank you for making St. Spyridon your spiritual home.

Summer is coming to an end and starting in September we would like to begin some new initiatives. Among them, we are contemplating the idea of starting a Greek after-school program. We also intend to launch a monthly Orthodox Study Group, starting September 19. Please let us know if you would like to be involved with or are available for future activities.

Once again, Kali Panaghia! Most Holy Theotokos save us!

With Christ’s love,

Fr. Nicolas

When a member of our Parish is ill and has been hospitalized or may be recuperating at home, the immediate family of the ill person should contact Father Nicolas at (212) 795-5870. It is beneficial to both the body and the soul when our priest prays for us when we are healthy or ill.
