Upcoming Events

Confession schedule can be found in the bulletin OR by clicking here: Monthly Calendar For those who are hesitant to worship in person, Fr. David is available to meet with you, either at home or in church, to participate in the Sacraments of Holy Confession and Communion. Please email or call Fr. David to set up an appointment. 
 
In the church vestibule are two paper Christmas trees that herald this year's Giving Tree Ministry - our annual opportunity to share holiday joy with financially strapped seminarians and their families. You are invited to take several ornament tags, and purchase the presents. Remember to affix the tag to the present. All items must be in by Sunday, November 27th. Thanks for your love, support and generosity.
 
The St. Nicholas Day pagaent will be presented by the Church School on Sunday December 4th, following Liturgy. Anyone interested in lending a hand should see Karen Berezniak or Basil Kozak. Yolka Practice will take place in the hall this Saturday, Dec. 3rd at 4:00PM. (NOTE: There will be an expanded Coffee Hour hosted by the St. Anne's Guild and it is rumored that even St. Nicholas himself will make an appearance.
 
Plan ahead for the Holidays! A Christmas Kolachi Sale  is being held by the Senior R Club. Poppy, apricot, nut and prune rolls are available for $18.00 each. The deadline for ordering is Sunday, November 20th with a delivery date of  Friday, December 9th. Call Carol Deerson at (732) 254-4979.
 
On Saturday, December 10th, beginning at 10:am, members of the Holy Bread Baking Ministry will meet in in the hall to participate in the ancient tradition of making prosphora for our Eucharistic celebrations. If you want to help, please come! - Everyone is welcome! 
 
Teaching Liturgy will take place on Sunday, Dec. 11th, at 8:30AM. It will address the vesting of the priest and the preparation of gifts, commonly known as Prokomedia. Its goal is to engage the hearts and minds of everyone, young and old, so that you can worship with much more understanding and passion. 
 
Our Church Choir will be hosting its Annual Community Christmas Concert on Sunday, December 18th, at 3:00PM in the church. An array of liturgical and secular holiday music from around the world will be performed to delight one and all. Although there is NO CHARGE for this event, a free-will offering of a canned good would be much appreciated to support the South River Food Bank. There will be refreshments served in the church hall afterwards - come and enjoy!
 
FOOD CARD PROGRAM : Food cards are available for various supermarket chains after Divine Liturgy, and do not cost any more than the face value of the card. The church receives a percentage as a free fundraiser! See Judy Znaiden in church or at jznaiden@optonline.net.
