On October 14th members of St. George Orthodox Church joined with other local Orthodox communities to help children in Philadelphia get ready for the start of a new school year. With the generous help of Tom's Shoes Focus was able to provide several thousand shoes for students in Philadelphia. It was our joy to once again be part of this wonderful way for students to start the school year with hopefully a little bounce in their step.
On the weekend of October 3-4 the St. George community welcomed Bp. THOMAS. On Saturday morning the Sunday school had breakfast with him and got to ask him questions about the vestments he wears, if he likes sports, and why he became a bishop. In the evening His Grace presided at Vespers and then joined the Parish Council for a wonderful dinner. On Sunday morning His Grace served the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy and preached on the need for us to reach out to the community around us and to love everyone we encounter and invite friends and neighbors and even strangers to the beauty of the Church. After Liturgy our parish family gathered in the Hall for a wonderful lunch provided through our communities loving hospitality.
One of the ways that Orthodox Christians remember those who have reposed is to make Kolyva. On August 29th after celebrating the Liturgy for the Beheading of St John the Forerunner some of our parish family gathered with Fr.Joel and Anastasia to discuss the history of Kolyva and to learn to make it. It was a delicious time for everyone.
