Feast Day of Sts. Cosmas and Damianos

On Sunday, November 3, we celebrate the Feast Day of Saints Cosmas and Daminos, the Patron Saints of the Philoptochos Society. Two of our earliest Christian martyrs.

During services Philoptochos members will circulate a special tray to benefit the Philoptochos Ecumenical Patriarchate Fund. 

Many thanks to Elaine Kusulas for generously donating the items for the Artoklasia.

Once again, our community will be "adopting" nursing home residents and providing them with new fleece sweats. A new fleece warm-up will surely brighten their Christmas this year!

October Event Highlights
Niki Mott and her volunteers rolled out the first Philoptochos "Taste of Greece: cooking class on October 16. It was lots of fun and a great success. There were 18 participants and several people signed up for the future classes. Please remember to share with your co-workers and friends. A gift certificate to a cooking class makes a wonderful Christmas gift for anyone who loves Greek food! Click on  Cathedral website  under Adult Ministries for schedule and contact info.
