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.

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.
