Welcome to the St. Catherine Greek Orthodox Church Website

 

News This Week at St.Catherine
 
 

Parishioner Info: We are in the process of updating our parish lists and creating a database of helpful parishioner information in order to better

communicate with parishioners and develop ministries. Parishioner Information Forms are available in the narthex. Please submit competed forms

to the church office. The information will be used only for parish purposes and not given to outside sources. Information is voluntary and questions

are optional, but we hope you will fill out the form completely so we can best serve you. Please help us out by taking the form to someone you

know who is not on our mailing or email lists. Contact Fr. Stephen if you have any questions.

Deeb Bequest: We thank Richard and Patricia Deeb for their generous bequest of over $4,700 from their trust. It was most thoughtful of them to

have our parish as a beneficiary. The money will go to support our ministries. Consider your support through designating our parish as a beneficiary from your estate. See your financial advisor for guidance.

Sunday School: Classes are being held virtually through zoom on the weekends. We ask families with children to provide the teachers with emails so

they can send the children invites to the class. Registration Forms are available in the narthex. Please return it to the church office. Please see

the Director Sofia Kalantzi or Fr. Stephen for questions.

Stewardship: We thank those who have made a 2021 stewardship pledge.Please support our parish ministries with your pledge if you have not done

so for this year. Consider increasing your pledge from last year as we may not be able to have our usual fundraisers. Pledge forms are available in the

narthex. Donations can also be made online through our website. Thank you for your support.

Snow Plan: When services or activities are cancelled due to inclement weather, the voicemail greeting on the church line, 607-273-2767, will be updated. An email will also go out to those on our email list. Submit your email to the church office if you wish to be on our email list.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Our Philoptochos membership drive kicked off last month, so if you'd like to join, or renew, just send a check to Philoptochos,

120 W. Seneca St Ithaca, NY 14850 with "membership" on the memo line. As you decide on an amount to give, please keep in mind the first $21 of your Philoptochos stewardship goes to National and Metropolis offices to continue their good works.

Livestream: We are broadcasting our services on YouTube for those who are staying home and for those who would like to join us

from afar. Our channel is "Saint Catherine GOC Ithaca" or you can use the link https://youtube.com/channel/UC5ZR00FiDn92tsdQIip-J5zA. Past services are also available to watch.

Coffee Hour: There will be no coffee hour or socializing following services until further notice. The church hall is closed. Please exit the church following the dismissal of service.
