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 begin at 10 AM with the Divine Liturgy (which is served almost exlusively in English) followed by a pot-luck luncheon and a program which might include art, folk-dancing, games, or various crafts.  The children also receive a lesson about the Church, the saint of the day, the Liturgy, or some other spiritual topic.  The gatherings are finished by 1 PM.  We invite everyone with younger children, especially parents who are home-schooling, to participate.
