►Parking– Dear parishioners, it came to my attention that sometimes people are not properly parking their cars. This includes parking in the dashed line area, parking over the center line, and others. In order to efficiently use our parking lot, you have to make sure you park exactly in between the lateral lines and not park over the center line. Additionally, the parking lot is designed for cars to pull in only up to the center line and pull out in reverse. Pulling up forward into a spot (so as not to have to back up when leaving) increases the risk of and accident since the angle of the lines makes it difficult for the driver to turn out of the parking spot when leaving. Thank you for your understanding.
►BLESSING of HOMES– According to the church’s old religious tradition, after the feast of the Theophany, parishioners invite the priest to visit and bless their homes with Holy Water to receive the blessing for the upcoming year. Those of you, who would like to celebrate the blessing of your home/apartment please call the parish office (315) 252-5573 and let me know. If I am not available, please leave a message and I will call you back to establish the day and time for the blessing of your house.
