October 2019 Calendar
Pink Sunday
Sunday, October 6, 2019 
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of this disease.

This Sunday, Philoptochos will be hosting coffee hour, following Divine Liturgy. We know we must keep hope alive and our annual support will provide women with much needed resources and a supportive hand as they walk through the cancer care system.

Let's all go PINK!!! We encouraged all members to bring a coffee item and to wear pink to honor and remember those affected by breast cancer.

A table will be provided to collect donations for Komen Denver or donations may be made online below:
