Join our online Book Study group, which meets every other week on Fridays at 8pm.
We are beginning to read a new book, "
The Religion of the Apostles" by Fr Stephen De Young. 
This is one of the best sellers among Orthodox books at the moment. The book "presents the Orthodox Christian Church of today as a continuation of the religious life of the apostles, which in turn was a continuation of the life of the people of God since the beginning of creation."
We meet via Google Meet; therefore, reply to this email to get the meeting link.
PARKING
If you are coming to our annual picnic, please try to park either at the formerly Frugillo parking lot or Plastic-O-Matic parking lot.

Both lots are adjacent to or Picnic field.

If you decide to park on the street, please be respectful of our neighbors. Do not block their driveways, nor litter in their yards.
If you or someone you know need help getting to and from church on Sundays (or other days), please let Fr Aleksey know, or reply to this email.
If you would like to volunteer to drive someone to church on your way here, also tell Fr Aleksey.
As the cruel and unprovoked invasion of and war in Ukraine by Vladimir Putin tragically continues, we, as Christians living in the USA, will continue to pray and help in whatever way we can:

1. Pray - here is a link to 
three Prayers for Peace.

2. Help - on the first page of our website - 
www.singac.com - you will find information for ways you can help either financially or with items donated. The information will be periodically updated.

 
May the Good Lord guard and protect those who are being bombed, wounded, and displaced, and grant eternal rest with His saints to all the lives already lost in this senseless war.

God grant you many years!
