“THE ARCHANGELS” Any Occasion Greeting Cards

We are excited to announce that the Archangel icons painted and donated by our own Zoya Sheglov have been made into blank greeting cards for use on any occasion.
The icons were blessed during vesper service on November 7, 2020 to commemorate the Synaxis of the Archangel Michael and the Heavenly Bodiless Powers. They hang in the nave of St Michael.
The cards created out of these icons are a beautiful set of 8, one for each Archangel, that will be available on Sunday as a complete set for only $10. They include the icon, the story of the Archangel, and a prayer to each Archangel.
Thanks to Zoya Sheglov for her beautiful work and generous donation of the icons; to Mircea Dumitrescu for taking the pictures of each icon; and to Ksenia Pryme for formatting the cards and getting them ready to print.
God bless you all for your support of St. Michael!

Prosforon (Altar Bread) Baking Tutorial

Thank you to Electra Savas for holding a Prosphora Baking tutorial on Saturday, August 21.
Electra has been baking Holy Bread for St. Michael for many years. It was an opportunity for her to share her talent with others.
Thanks to Carole Kanavos for taking pictures and to Yury Klokov for taking video.
An icon of “Prophora Bakers” was presented to Electra as a small token of thanks for her many years of stewardship to St Michael.

This is a lesson for all of us to share our talents and be good stewards of St Michael. If there is any way you can volunteer, please let Joe Rahal know Stewardship is a combination of sharing time, talent and treasure. There are so many opportunities for us to be active. Nothing is too small!
