Looking Ahead:

Sunday-Tuesday, December 28-30 Teen and Young Adult Ski Trip to Mt. Hood

Friday, January 2: 6:30 to 9:00 pm —  IOCC Benefit dinner and dancing, hosted by our young adults.  At present we have folks to teach Macedonian and Greek dancing and we have Middle Eastern, Macedonian, Bulgarian and Greek food.  If there are any other ethnic dancers or chefs available, please see Fr. George.  The initial cost will be $10, but we’ll be asking for additional donations.  The proceeds will go toward the expenses for some of our young adults to participate in the IOCC volunteer in the Gulf Coast project: www.iocc.org/giving/giving_volunteergulf8-06.aspx
