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!
