Dear Parishioners:

You may have recently received an email from  Whomever sent it is trying to create the impression that it came from St. Dimitrie by using 504 Sport Hill Road as its address. Please be advised that this email was not sent by me, the Parish Council or any authorized representative of St. Dimitrie.

It is also concerning to me that the sender appears to have obtained and/or used our email list in an unauthorized manner. Accordingly, I am contacting our Information Technology Company to determine if our account has been hacked. If there is evidence that our account was accessed without permission, or if we determine that our proprietary information was disclosed improperly, it is my intention to notify the appropriate State and Federal authorities to investigate.

Only the Archbishop can authorize a Special Meeting. His Eminence has not given such permission. Additionally, the Parish Council never authorized a "Town Meeting" or any other type of assembly for the community.




Robert J. Nicola, President

Sunday School Begins on 10/4

Sunday School Classes Begin
Sunday, October 4,
10:30 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.

Please note: This is a slight change from prior years when we were striving to begin at 10:15 a.m. Students attending the second service will be escorted upstairs to church to sit with their families.

Please help your child to be on time and attend as often as possible. Consistency and continuity are extremely important for your child during these years. We prepare carefully each week to begin meaningful teaching from the very beginning of the class, and your child's arrival on time helps the whole class to get the most out of the session. While we are always happy to welcome the children to class, arriving late means we have to stop, get settled and often start over again which is unfair to the children who have arrived on time. If you have any questions, please contact Linda Kolton at 203-696-0807 or


We know mornings are tough and we appreciate your best efforts to get here on time!

St. Dimitrie Donates Four Boxes to the IOCC


Four boxes of items purchased by our parishioners and with money donated by the Ladies Auxiliary and its members were mailed to the International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) on November 19th.

The generous donation of the Ladies' Auxiliary and several individuals at the August meeting funded 16 School Kits, 12 Health Kits, and one Cleanup Kit. Other parishioners bought and assembled 16 School Kits, 14 Health Kits, and seven Baby Kits.

We thank everyone who donated complete kits, money, donated time to assemble, package, and mail the kits, and the anonymous donor who paid for shipping. We especially thank Oana Zharku for initiating and supporting this project throughout the past year!
