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!
