Sunday, April 28, 2013 — Sunday of the Samaritan Woman
Christ is risen from the dead! By death He trampled Death; and to those in the tombs he granted life!
A Blessed Pascha to all!
Divine Liturgy Change!!!
Due to the Pittsburgh Marathon next Sunday, Divine Liturgy will be held on Saturday, May 4 for both parishes. 4pm at Saint John the Baptist and 6pm at Saint John Chrysostom.
Summer Picnic and Games
The GCU and Saint John Chrysostom will be jointly hosting a Summer Picnic of Saturday, June 8. It will begin at 4pm with Divine Liturgy (Summer Dress Down in acceptable) followed by fun and games and a great Catered Picnic Dinner to be done by Thomas from Sojourn.There will be fun and games for people of ALL ages and skill sets – and great prices, too! Since Saint John Chrysostom and Saint John the Baptist parishes have been so collaborative over the past years, we have also invited the members of the South Side to share in the fun!!! Please consult the flyers in the Church which will provide greater details. Tickets will be available. It should be a wonderful time for all in attendance. Kids and grandkids are especially welcome — it's a Family Celebration!!!
A Night at the Races
Saint John the Baptist will be holding a Night at the Races on Friday, June 14. Doors will open at 6pm with dinner from 630-730pm. Admission is $10 which includes dinner, non-alcoholic beverages, desserts and snacks; Horse Races, instant bingos and pig races are additional. This is a BYOB event. Horses will be $10 each beginning the first weekend in May. There will be 100 horses for sale: 10 horses per race in 10 races, plus a bonus race with horses bought and named that night. Races begin at 730pm. Please support us – as you always do – the South Side Parish is a small community and needs our assistance.
Cross Repair on Church Roof
Repair and re-guilding of the crosses will begin in about two weeks. We are still trying to negotiate the work on the domes!!!
Bible Study has resumed in the Parish House. New participants are invited — and there is no long term commitment. Just stop by!
And As Always:
Please remember to pray for the sick and shut-ins of our parish family. Maybe even send them a card, make a phone call or visit them.
