Welcome to the St. Catherine Greek Orthodox Church Website
Vasilopita Celebration: We will be having our Vasiloptia celebration next Sunday, January 10th. Due to COVID restrictions, Fr. Stephen will be bles- sing and cutting only one loaf for our parish. Any other loaves brought will be blessed and taken home.
House Blessings: Due to COVID restrictions, Fr. Stephen will not be offering the traditional house blessings after Epiphany, but may do so later in the year as conditions may change. Holy Water bottles will be available to take home for your blessings.
Stewardship: We thank all who gave stewardship to our parish in 2020. Many increased their giving to cover our shortfall of not ha- ving our usual fundraisers. As we begin the new year, please continue to support the ministries of our parish with your new stewardship pledge. Stewardship forms are available in the narthex.
Parish Calendar: The January 2021 calendar is available. Keep one to stay informed of parish services and events.
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.
Good News: We congratulate Philip Dzwonczyk on his recent engagement.
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.

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.
Tray: No tray will be passed after services. Please leave any donations in a basket in the narthex, mail them to the church, or use our
