St. John Chrysostom Oratorical Festival, 2014.
As per the September mailing, our parish is undergoing its second phase of iconography to complete the west and lower walls of the church, while simultaneously raising funds for out community center. Throughout this process the Iconography Committee and Parish Council would like to keep our parish updated as to our collective progress in this endeavor.
Ten years ago, our community purchased the beautiful icon of the Theotokos and Christ child, the Platytera, through the efforts of the entire parish. We would like to accomplish this again with the West wall iconography project. The suggested donation per family for this project is $600. If this figure does not meet your abilities you may speak to Fr. Demetrios privately for other options. The lower wall icons on the sides of the church, may be donated by an individual or family, in memory or health of a relative for $5,000.
Many families have already spoken with Fr. Demetrios, however we kindly ask that you secure your donations, as we start to work with the iconographer and send him funds
