Link Visitors Series, Apostle’s Feast, Sunday Schedule for Summer, and more

I pray you all had a wonderful July 4th with your family and friends. I feel blessed to live in such a great country where we enjoy the freedom to worship, assemble, and dialogue.  Of course with freedom, comes great responsibility.  This is so true, and we experience this truth on a daily basis with the free will that our Lord has granted us.

Last Sunday we kicked off the Link visitor’s series entitled SIMPLE LESSONS FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH with Joe Everett discussing Boundaries.  This coming Sunday we will have Makar Naguib discussing how to Use Good Habits (and Fighting Bad Ones) to Grow Spiritually.

Also, just a reminder that summer is officially here, so St. Anianus will be starting and finishing 30 minutes earlier on Sunday mornings.  Please see full summer schedule below:

Hospitality: The St. Anianus Hospitality Ministry is happy to make sure you are welcomed and fed between the Divine Liturgy and the Link & Kids Ministry.  The volunteer commitment is based on your availability to help.  Please speak with Mary Alfy at or on Sunday’s.

We believe that every member in the body of Christ should be actively serving in the Church.  You are invited to personally get involved and help out by offering your time to serving the many needs of the growing community, as we seek to serve one another, in the model of Jesus Christ.  Drop us a line at and we can help you figure out some volunteer opportunities.
