May 6, Victory Day Commemoration


We will commemorate Victory Day again this year.  Come and join us.  We will talk about the War, the relatives who participated in it, sing songs, and recite some poems.

Pascha in 1945 fell on May 6, the feast day of St. George the Trophy Bearer.

The program will occur right after the meal after the Divine Liturgy on Sunday the 6th of May, and will be bilingual.


St George’s ribbons will be distributed with Father’s blessing from the bookstore near the candles starting next Sunday. Please stop by and pick up one as a free gift.
