Online Prayer Ministry
This group consists of parishioners who are committed to praying for requests that come in via email.
Men’s, Women’s, and All-Parish events help us to stay connected and to keep growing in our love for Christ and for each other.
Our homeschool co-op meets every Tuesday and includes students from preschool to middle school. We begin with Third Hour prayers, and then offer classes on a variety of topics: Science, Greek, Bible and Saints, Choir, Accordion, Piano, and much more!
A robust team of bakers offers the prosphora bread for the Eucharist each Sunday and participates in periodic baking classes.
We support a number of charitable organizations both locally and internationally, including Outreach Warrenville in Warrenville, IL; Lifespring Shelter for Women & Children in Need in Aurora, IL; Cathedral’s Kitchen in Chicago, IL; Saint Paraskeva Orthodox Charity in Romania; and St. Nicholas Uganda Children’s Fund in Uganda.
The clergy are joined by altar boys and altar servers in our parish’s liturgical ministry to the Lord.
Homily classes are offered for the children of our parish. Church School classes are offered the children, youth, and adults. In the fall of 2022, a new curriculum was introduced for the children and youth, covering Church History, Sacraments, Old Testament, and Gospels over a 4-year cycle.
Our “agape meal” following the Divine Liturgy is a happy and important time of getting to know one another and growing closer together as a parish.
Building and Grounds
Through our “Adopt-A-Job” program, a team of faithful workers attends to weekly responsibilities to keep our buildings clean. In addition, the Men’s Fellowship works to maintain and beautify our grounds.
