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.
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 Warrenville Youth & Family Services (WYFS) 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 and Church School classes are offered for the children and youth of our parish. In the fall of 2020, a new Scripture Memory curriculum was introduced in the youngest two classes; the children say, sing, and sign to learn important Scripture passages by heart.
Our coffee hour following the Divine Liturgy is a happy and important time of getting to know one another and growing closer together as a parish.
