Protodeacon David is away this weekend - this is why……
Protodeacon David is attending the 2018 Eastern Catholic Deacon Congress in Scranton, PA where he will deliver the Keynote address on the liturgical role of the deacon. This congress, the first of its kind is under the auspices of the US Eastern Catholic Association of Bishops and will be recorded by Orientale Lumen TV. How fortunate we are to have such gifted people at St. Elias!
A note about the safety + supervision of children on Church property
1. THANK YOU, for bringing your children to church! Be assured, the effort (and it does take a lot of effort with little ones) is well worth it!
2. It is a beautiful sight to see children playing on church grounds after Divine Liturgy (during Liturgy they are with you in church - yes?).
3. In this good weather, the pond is a great attraction - but also poses a great risk! No child of any age should be anywhere near the pond without PARENTAL supervision.
4. Rock climbing is a great sport, but climbing the rock walls around the church and playing around ventilation equipment also presents a liability.
5. We have been blessed with beautiful grounds - our own church “park”. Do enjoy this gift with your children keeping them safe under your watchful eye!
