Coffee Hour at the Rectory......

Coffee Hour at the Rectory......

“Cheerfulness is not a sin. It drives away weariness; and it is from weariness that despondency comes, and there is nothing worse than that. -St. Seraphim of Sarov

 

Sunday, June 6, following Divine Liturgy, our parishioners cheerfully walked across to the rectory back yard where there was a large tent with many tables and chairs lounging under its shade. It was soon filled with happy people ready to enjoy a coffee hour on this bright, wonderful day. After more than a year of not socializing, we were ready to express our joy and pleasure at being able once again to face each other and catch up on local family news. However, since this coffee hour was organized and done by Fr. Maryan, Mat. Lana and their children, coffee and cake and cookies were accompanied by salad, chicken, and pizza. Also, of course, coffee, and water and other beverages were available. We gratefully thank Fr. Maryan, Mat. Lana and their family for that marvelous coffee hour. May God bless them abundantly for their love and efforts on behalf of St. John’s.  Pictures are in the Photo Gallery.

 

Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise! Give thanks to Him, bless His name! For the LORD is good; His steadfast love endures forever, and His faithfulness to all generations. (Ps 100:4-5 A Psalm of David.)
