Thee have I put my hope. Cause me to know, O Lord, the way
wherein I should walk; for unto Thee have I lifted up my soul. –

ST. NICHOLAS 85 Anniversary
th
Save the Date: Our parish community will be celebrating our
85th Anniversary on the first weekend of November.
Metropolitan Hilarion will serve the Vigil on Saturday 1
November and the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy on Sunday 2
November.
Joining our choir on that day will be
the St Petersburg Men’s Ensemble, who
will also be performing at the banquet
following the Liturgy. In addition, we
will have Russian folk dancing and a
performance of our children’s choir.
The time and place for the banquet, as
well as other details will be announced
after the meeting of the Committee on
September 7.
In addition to the Divine Services, we plan other events and
projects in connection with the 85th Jubilee:
 A Commemorative Book with highlights of our history and
greetings from our neighbors and parishioners.
 A general refurbishment of the church: we plan to restore the
peeling paint and refresh the icons on the walls and roof of
the nave of the church, and we will be engaging an iconographer for this job.
 Fundraisers to begin shortly in connection with the Jubilee.
This is too large a task to let it rest entirely on the shoulders of
the same people who already have other duties in the church. We
need more volunteers. If you wish to help, please speak with
Dexter or Masha Peavy, Gregory Romanovsky, or with Fr
George.
On behalf of our Rector and the Parish Council, we ask all
our parishioners to attend all services, the Banquet, and all
activities related to the 85th Anniversary. We also ask you to
invite as many of your family and friends as you can for this
milestone event.
Please keep in mind that this Anniversary is not just for us,
the present parishioners. It is also a tribute for those who
planted the seed for our parish, and for those who worked hard
over the years to preserve and pass down our Faith and
heritage. We owe it to them as well as to ourselves this
testament to our commitment to serve our Lord and to preserve
our Russian Orthodox heritage.
This Bulletin
Sponsor the Bulletin: If you wish to sponsor any future issues in whole or in part, please contact our treasurer, Anastasia
Milligan or ask at the Candle Desk. You may donate in memory
of a departed relative, or for some milestone, a birthday, anniversary or other celebration. The cost of the Bulletin is approximately $125.
The Bulletin by Email: It costs about $1.25 each to produce
copies of the Bulletin. Please consider receiving the Bulletin by
email, which costs nothing. If you wish to change to email,
please contact [email protected] We also invite our readers
to support this Bulletin by donations. Do you wish to be taken

Reminder on Parish Dues: At the beginning of the academic
and ecclesiastical year (the Church New Year is 14 September),
our Treasurer, Anastasia Milligan asks our parishioners to remember their dues, and please not wait until just before the Annual Meeting next February to get caught up. Our church needs
continuous funding to meet our obligations and to keep up with
the utilities.
Become a Member: If you attend services but are not a
member, would you please consider joining? The cost is not
great - $150 per adult, or $300 for families with two adults and
any number of children. This amounts to about $12.50 a month
per person. We also have an introductory rate for students.
New Beginnings: September is the beginning of both the
school year and the Church year, and so marks a time of new beginnings. Let us resolve to improve our spiritual lives. We are
never too old to learn our Faith. Let us learn along with our children this new Church School year.
Services
9/11 Memorial: To commemorate the 12th Anniversary of the
attacks on New York and Washington, we will serve a short litya
at the end of the Divine Liturgy on Sunday 7 September for those
that perished. Some of the victims were Orthodox Christians.
Moleben for the New School Year: A prayer service for the
beginning of the school year and for the good success in studies
of all our children and young people in all schools will be held at
Announcements – September 2014
the end of the Divine Liturgy on Sunday 7 September. Please
write the names of all students (yourself and your children!) on
the School Year Commemoration List at the Candle Desk before
the service.
Beheading of St John the Baptist: We will serve the
Moleben to the Beheading of St John at 6:30 pm Thursday 11
September. Please remember that this is a fast day. We abstain
from meat, eggs, dairy products and fish.
Our Parish
Fr George’s Work Hours: Fr George will be teaching at the
University of New Haven, where he will conduct Physics Lab,
and at the University of Bridgeport, where he will teach Introductory Algebra. In addition he will be tutoring Mathematics and
Physics at the University of New Haven. His hours are as

Church New Year: Services for the Church New Year 7523
will be combined with the Resurrectional service at the Vigil, 5
pm Saturday 13 September, and Divine Liturgy 10 am Sunday 14
September. An abbreviated Moleben for the New Year will follow the Divine Liturgy.
Nativity of the Theotokos: This is one of the Twelve Great
Feasts of the Church year, and celebrates the birth of the MostHoly Theotokos. Services for this Feast will be combined with
the Resurrectional service of Sunday. Vigil with litya will be at 5
pm Saturday 20 September on the Eve of the Feast. Divine Liturgy for the Feast is at the usual time, 10 am Sunday 21
September.

this day we abstain from meat, eggs, dairy products and fish. Vigil with Litya is at 6:30 pm Friday 26 September and Divine Liturgy is at 9:30 am Saturday 27 September.
Update Your Commemoration Lists: The beginning of the
Church year is a good time to take a moment to look over your
Commemoration Book (Pomjannik). Are there any changes? Do
you wish to add any names For Health and Salvation? Have any
of your relatives reposed? Are all the names Orthodox?
Please use proper baptismal names, and avoid nicknames or
shortened pet names. If someone’s secular name and baptismal
names are different, use the baptismal name.
If you include non-Orthodox names, please clearly mark them
as such. Prosphoras should not be given for the unbaptized or for
non-Orthodox. For non-Orthodox loved ones it is proper to light
candles before the icons and to pray that the Lord enlighten them
and have mercy on them.
Проверяйте Ваши Помяники: Пересмотрите ваши помяники. Есть ли какие-нибудь перемены, новые имена за
здравие или за упокой? Пишите пожалуйста только крещенние имена, а не ласкательные или светские, и только православных христиан. Можно зажигать свечки и молиться за некрещенных и неправославных перед иконами. Частицы с
именами на поминовение идут во Святую Чашу, а это для
тех, которые могут причащаться. Пишите пожалуйста все
имена четко и в том же падеже (т.е. родительном: за здравие
чье? За упокой чей?).
Molebens: To mark lesser holy days in September, we will
serve the following molebens: Beheading of St John the Baptist,
Thursday 11 September; and Martyrs Sophia and her Three
Daughters, Faith, Hope and Charity (Vera, Nadezhda and
Ljubov), Tuesday 30 September. Both of these molebens begin at
6:30 pm.

Tuesday: 8 to 11 am
Wednesday: 4 to 6 pm
Thursday: 8 am to 3 pm, or until 10 pm on alternate
Thursdays
Friday: 9 am to 3 pm
In case of pastoral emergencies during those hours, please
call and leave a message at 203 209-9374, and Fr. George will

Lampada Sponsorship: Offerings may be made to sponsor
the lighting the lampadas at the Divine Liturgy, either in memory
of loved ones, or in gratitude for blessings received, or for any
other good intention. The sponsorship of the lampadas is $25 for
all the lampadas in the church. Register at the Candle Desk if you
wish to sponsor the lampadas, in whole or in part, on a Sunday of
your choice.
Utilities: Please remember that on the first Sunday of each
month there is a special collection for utilities.
Consider the Church in Your Will: Please consider including St Nicholas Church in your will. There are many advantages
in making the Church one of your beneficiaries. It is possible to
structure the bequest so that there is little loss to the estate.
Please contact our Starosta, Dexter Peavy, for more information.
Collection Box: The collection box next to the icon stand in
the middle of the church is for the Restoration Fund and preparations for our 85th Anniversary as a community .Our anniversary
celebration will be on November 1 and 2.
Prosphora Baking: We had our first prosphora baking
session without Matushka Nina’s supervision on Saturday 19
July. The participants were: Fr Deacon Paul Giatas, Fr George
Lardas, Andrew Warth, and John Lardas. We used Matushka
Nina’s propshora seal and cutters, with the promise that this will
be the last time. We baked about 180 prosphoras, and they came
out very well.
The next session was on Saturday 23 August, since we had
nearly run out of our supply. This time the bakers were only Fr
George and Andrew Warth, and we baked 170 prosphoras.
Our next propshora baking session will be announced for
sometime at the beginning of October. We need more volunteers.
If Saturdays are not convenient for you, perhaps we could have a
smaller session some other time. Please speak with Fr George.
Sisterhood
We Appreciate Donations of Coffee Hour Supplies: The
Sisterhood is always in need of donations of supplies for our
Coffee Hour. We need paper plates, Styrofoam soup bowls,
-2-
Announcements – September 2014
cups, and paper napkins. We are particularly in need of food
storage and ziplock bags. We also need food supplies and
willing hands to help prepare, set things up and clean up. Please
remember the parish when you are shopping, and see Joan
Hudobenko if you wish to help. We thank you for your continued
support, and appreciate all your donations.
Our Children
Our Summer: Here are two accounts of how our young
people spent their summer. Our Altar Boy Michael (Misha)
Reilly tells us about his week at Three Saints Summer Day
Camp, and his week at St Seraphim’s Camp. Our parishioner,
John Lardas, describes his participation in the All-Diaspora
Youth Conference in San Francisco. He was also a junior
counselor at St Seraphim’s Camp, where Matushka Ann
volunteered as kitchen staff.
By Misha Reilly:
When I was at Three Saints Camp I remembered a lot of familiar people. Kids from different Russian Orthodox churches
came to spend a week playing games, learning about the Bible,
participating in arts and crafts, and swimming in a pond. We
played a lot of different sports like basketball and soccer, and
made up games like pass that ball. We also had arts and crafts
time. This year we made a star with the Father and Son in the
middle. We also had Bible study. Father Patrick spoke about and
taught us about the Parables of Christ. This was my third year
and I can’t wait to go back again next year.
St. Seraphim Camp is a sleep away camp in Pennsylvania. It
lasts a week and you sleep in tents with a friend or two. You are
assigned to a campsite depending on your age. There is a senior
counselor and two junior counselors in each camp. We played
sports such as soccer, swimming, archery, and even got to shoot
B.B. guns. There were lots of fun games and we even had a
shaving cream fight. During this fight you need to get a board
over to your side before someone sprays you with shaving cream.
You need to move fast. Also, I don’t want to forget to mention the
band that came to perform and play music for us. There was a
saxophone, accordion, and drums. It was a lot of fun. I can’t wait
to go back
By John Lardas:
San Francisco Conference:
This summer I went to the AllDiaspora Youth Conference in
San Francisco. There were young
adults from 11 different countries
that ROCOR has parishes, all
there for the 20th anniversary of
Saint John Maximovitch’s glorification and the ordination of our
new Bishop Nikolai. I was personally in the youth choir for the
service, and there were at least 13 bishops. I had never seen so
many people fit into one church. The theme of the conference
itself was charity and social service, so we got to help a homeless
shelter, visit the Saint John of Kronstadt nursing home, as well
as listen to talks on how to be active in communities. The take
home point was that the Christian life requires emulating
Christ’s love for the world, by actively helping the poor, the
hungry, and the sick wherever we find them. I was particularly
impressed with the presentation by the group FOCUS, (Fellowship of Orthodox Christians United to Serve,) who center themselves around local parishes and provide food for the hungry as
well as connecting those who need it to counseling and medical
attention. I would suggest anybody interested to look up the work
they do, as well as ROCOR’s own Fund for Assistance. Photo by

Your Children Belong in Church (Fall Activities): We
again remind the parents of our parish that attendance and
participation in the Divine Services on the Lord’s Day is a duty,
and not optional. When we absent ourselves from serving God on
that day we are actually stealing from God. He gives us
absolutely everything, our life, our homes, our abilities, our
careers, our children, our minds, our health – absolutely
everything. He gives us the time of our life, and our freedom. In
return He requires of us our service, our worship, our gratitude.
Please keep this in mind when you are planning your children’s school-year activities. No activity is more important than
our duty to God. There is enough time in our week for everything: Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the
seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt
not do any work (Exodus 20:9, 10).
Let all parents know that they commit a sin when they put
their children in activities that take them away from the Church.
There are times when an occasional event might be inescapable,
but when it becomes the general rule, it is wrong. Absence from
church on Sundays and holy days is a sin that must be confessed
and repented of.
Altar Boys’ Workshop: This will take place on Sunday 31
August after the Coffee Hour. We ask all Altar Boys to attend.
Any young man in the parish who wishes to serve in the Altar,
even if he is not able to attend every Sunday, is welcome to join
and to participate in the Workshop.
Church School Teachers and Volunteers: We thank those
who conducted the Church School last year: Maria Peavy, Mary
Coroneos and Joy Paschalidis. We also thank Elena Curran for
supervising the Children’s Choir. We can always use help in any
capacity with our children and with the Church School, and so if
you wish to work with our young people, please see Fr George or
Maria Peavy.
Church School Begins: The first day of classes will be on
Sunday 14 September. This year’s curriculum will be a continuation of those of the previous years, with new material. Class begins immediately after Holy Communion, when the teachers lead
their pupils downstairs to the church hall. Lessons will continue
until after the kissing of the Cross, when Fr George comes downstairs to bless the food. Please enroll your children. Many parents
have their children engaged in sports, music and foreign languages; but spiritual education is far more important.
Choir
Rehearsals: Beginning after Labor Day, the Choir will be
holding rehearsals for the Hierarchical Services on our 85 th
Anniversary, November 1 and 2. We ask all members of the
-3-
Announcements – September 2014
Choir to stay a few minutes after the Liturgy each Sunday to
practice the special hymns for that occasion.
Singers needed: Please come sing with us in the Choir! All
skill levels are welcome.

help changing the altar cloths and vestments at the appropriate

helping hands.

to blue. The blue remains until the apodosis or leave-taking of
