Please join us on Friday and Saturday, September 20 and 21, for two memorable events with a very special guest.

Khouria Gigi Shadid from Houston, Texas, is a trained educator and has produced five CD’s with Orthodox children’s songs. Gigi will be with us that weekend and will be leading a gathering and discussion with Sunday School teachers on Friday night in the library/old social hall (light meal provided for attendees). Saturday she will be the star of the JOY Fest activity, which is open to children ages 7-12. Both events are open to members of any Orthodox parish (of any background). Both events are also free of charge, but please RSVP for an accurate headcount.

See flyer for more information. Please email Manoli with questions, or to RSVP for either event (

And please spread the word!
