Memory Eternal
Our Brother in Christ - Constantin "Costache" Bargiuma

Constantin "Gus" Bargiuma of Bridgeport, beloved husband of the late Justina Mikolic Bargiuma, passed away peacefully on Monday, August 5, 2019. Born and raised in Kranea, Macedonia, Greece, son of the late Ioan and Ioana Mihadas Bargiuma, Constantin came to the United States in 1968 and had been a Fairfield and Bridgeport resident for many years. He had worked for Bovini Dental Lab and later for Sturm Ruger & Co. for nearly 30 years until his retirement. Mr. Bargiuma was a devoted member of St. Dimitrie Romanian Orthodox Church and served as a Church Cantor for many years, helping the priests blessing the homes of his community. Snow, rain or shine he was there. Also he was a Church Choir member since he came to this country. Survivors include his sisters, Eftimia Sideri and Caterina Colimitra ( Andrei ). He leaves behind nieces and nephew Sophia Belade ( Mark ), Christopher Ghitsa ( Claudia ), Nicole Belade, Mia Ghitsa and Gianna Ghitsa. He was predeceased by his brother Christo and sisters Stamatia Hatzis and Mariana Ghitsa and brothers-in-law Ioan Sideri, George Ghitsa and Christo Hatzis.

Wishing
Our Kitchen Wish List
* Do you have an unused refrigerator? Did you recently purchase a new fridge and have an old one taking up space? If so - we have a family who is in need. Please see Fr. George or Psa Marian for more information.
 
 If you've been to St. Dimitrie, you've enjoyed the delicious food that comes out of our very own kitchen. From pitas to stuffed cabbage, nut rolls to sweet bread, it doesn't happen by magic! The making of our homemade food requires many hands, a multitude of ingredients, and lots of shopping--and it happens all year round.
 
Next time you're shopping, please consider buying something from our "wish list". If something is on sale, buy more than one! If everyone brings in something occasionally, it lightens the load in more ways than you can imagine!
 
And as you've heard, many hands make light work. We could use your help, especially in the weeks and days leading up to our festivals and when we host events in the hall. Please check the website for our kitchen calendar to see what's happening when. Even an hour or two is a tremendous help and no experience is required! If you'd like to help before or after coffee hour, extra hands are always appreciated.

•  Butter

•  Walnuts

Fr George Honored on Anniversary of Ordination
May God Grant Him Many Years

Prayers of gratitude flowed on Sunday, September 17 as we surprised Fr George and Psa Marian with a coffee hour on the fourteenth anniversary of his Ordination to the Priesthood. Parish Council president Bob Nicola commented that "we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Fr George and we wouldn't be the community we are if he wasn't here to lead us."

After a chorus of " God Grant You Many Years, " Ladies President Betsy Cipu presented Psa Marian with a bouquet of flowers.   Fr. George  reminded us "it takes a village and we have to remember to love each other, love the Lord and love this community."  

"The people present are the main support of this parish and don't ever give that up. Bring your children, grandchildren and godchildren. Let this parish countinue when we are gone from here and our decendants take over for us."
La Multi Ani and Good Health to Fr George and Psa Marian from a grateful parish.
