Palm Sunday Bake Sale Proceeds to Benefit the Philoptochos Agape Outreach Project
Sunday, April 9,  following Divine Liturgy

All Philoptochos members are asked to bring their favorite baked item for our annual Palm Sunday Bake sale. Please d rop off your donated item before church services.  

T his year's bake sale will be dedicated to the Orthodox families whose children were born with rare congenital, anorectal malformations and who arrive from Greece as patients at Children's Hospital of Colorado.   In partnership with St. Catherine Church, our Philoptochos chapter provides hospitality outreach and supportive financial assistance to the families while they stay at the Ronald McDonald House and their children receive care and corrective surgeries by the world-renown Dr. Pena and his staff.  Since November of 2015, we have assisted six families and have jointly given over $4,000.  

Assistance to these families is so meaningful and greatly appreciated as many of them have overwhelming long term care expenses.
Please give generously and help these children have healthier and productive lives!
