The Launch of our Free Lunch Program

On April 10th, we launched our first free brown bag lunch program. We distributed 125 brown bag lunches to interested New Kensington neighbors.

We are grateful for the Food for Hungry grant that we received from our Antiochian Archdiocese that enabled us to fulfill our goal to enhance our current programs and reach out even more to our local community.

We welcome you on Saturday, May 15th from noon to 1:00 pm in our St. George parking lot when we will again be offering free brown bag lunches, first come first serve.

St. Nicholas Feast Day

On December 6, we commemorate our Father among the Saints, Nicholas the Wonderworker, Archbishop of Myra in Lycia.

After Vespers yesterday evening, our children enjoyed hearing a special visitor read the story, “Saint Nicholas and the Nine Gold Coins.”

With St. Nicholas as the model of giving, our church school shared some special gifts with our children, and the children brought in food donations to assist in stocking our emergency food pantry.
