Our parish council today

Our parish is blessed with an excellent council who look after the material needs and support of the community.  Under the capable leadership of Dr. Paul Slavchenko our capable and energetic council members have not only instituted programs and procedures which have contributed to the financial stability of our parish, but over the past several years have successfully negotiated the fund-raising campaign, design, and approval of a new parish hall which will be built this year.  

Our parish is blessed and grateful that God has given us such talented and dedicated council members!

Autumn Book Study

During the autumn months St. John's will host a book study entitled "When You Pray," using the book of the same title by L. Josephy Letendre.  The gatherings will be held on the last two Mondays of each month in the Church, beginning with Small Complie at 6:30 PM, followed by a discussion from 7 till 8:15 PM.  Books are available in the parish office, and everyone is welcome.

Saints and Strollers

"Saints and Strollers" is a program for parents with young children.  Our participants include both Orthodox and non-Orthodox, Ukrainian and non-Ukrainian families, who meet twice a month for spiritual support, fellowship, and Christian education.  The gatherings are held on Saturdays, beginning at 3 PM with fellowship, followed by various educational, cultural, and spiritual activities, and concludes with Vespers at 5 PM  (which is served almost exlusively in English).

We invite everyone with younger children, from toddlers through early primary school, to participate.
