Our Next Outreach Is

 

Monday June 16th, 2014  

Future Dates:

In the spirit of Christian stewardship, part of our parish outreach effort is to donate food to the Mary House food pantry and to volunteer at St. Patrick's meal kitchen. 

Monday November 25th, 2013 is our parish's next date to volunteer.  We meet at St. Patrick's on Smith Street by 4:00 PM.  The last meal is served by 5:15 PM when we help with clean-up. Call the Church office, Joyce Avedisian (724-3978), or Bertha Mugurdichian (351-9276) if you have any questions.

 

 

Four o'clock in the afternoon is part of the workday for most of us, but there is another way to help. Every time you come to church - for Badarak, church school, a meeting, an event - make a donation of one nonperishable food and/or personal hygiene item. We deliver an average of 100 cans every 10 - 12 weeks.  If we could collect just one can from every man, woman, and child each time we step through the doors of the church it would mean a donation of 400+ items each month. The food pantry supports the unemployed and working poor by offering them a place to get a bag of groceries one or two times a month. Sts. Sahag & Mesrob Church is one of several groups who contribute to this effort.

 

 

 

Thanks to those parishioners who have participated in the past.

ANNOUNCEMENT:
NEW PARISH DIRECTORY




 
Dear Parishioners,
 
     We are excited to announce that, in celebration of our Centennial,  we are going to create a new pictorial directory of our church family. The directory will help us to connect names with faces. It will be an ideal outreach tool and will capture the history of our church congregation.

Please participate!
 
     All we ask is that you have your picture taken by the professional photographer at the church. For the next several weeks we will be making appointments after church services in the Egavian Hall. Please sign up as soon as possible to get the best appointment to fit your schedule.  Appointments can also be made very easily on-line.  
     Every participating family/household that selects a pose for the directory will receive a FREE directory and a complimentary 8x10 portrait. You will come to the church only once for photography and for portrait viewing.
 
The program is available at no cost to the church.
 
     Along with the FREE 8x10 Portrait, you will have the opportunity to order additional portraits during your scheduled appointment time.     Whether you decide to dress formal or casual, you will want to make the most of this opportunity.
 
The scheduled dates for photography and portrait viewing are:
ATTENTION: COLLEGE STUDENTS?  SNOW BIRDS?  
1/ Friday, January 3 and Saturday, January 4, 2014. 
2/ Friday, March 14 and Saturday, March 15, 2014
3/ Friday, April 25 and Saturday, April 26, 2014.
4/ Friday, June 6 and Saturday, June 7, 2014.
*Friday times are from 2:30 - 9:00
*Saturday times are from 10:00 - 5:00


View sample directories
 
    If you have questions, please contact Yn. Julie Souin at 973-865-9925 or Linda Salas at 401-300-6779
     Again, if you have college students or are heading South after Armenian Christmas, sign up for session 1 sittings - January 3rd or 4th.
     We look forward to seeing everyone in the directory. Start making your appointments SUNDAY after church or CLICK HERE to make them on-lineOur new pictorial directory won't be complete without you!

Prayerfully
Der Shnork
