June 15: Men's FellowshipThe men's fellowship breakfast is this Saturday, June 15, at 7:30 am. We're meeting at Archangel Michael Hall. A light breakfast (eggs and bacon with coffee) will be served. All HTOC men are invited to attend.
June 15: Readers WorkshopA workshop is scheduled this Saturday (3:30 pm) for all readers of the church, those who would like to read, or those just curious about how it's done. We will cover practical aspects of chanting during the Divine services of the church; difficult pronunciations, the different kinds of readings, and have time to practice reading in a tone. All are welcome - seasoned readers and those new to this church ministry.
Camp ScholarshipsA collection basket will be available at the end of the Pentecost Divine Liturgy this Sunday, for any contributions to the camp scholarship fund.
June 16: Holy Pentecost, Parish Feast Day, Father’s DayThis Sunday, we will celebrate Pentecost, our Parish Feast Day and Father’s Day with our annual potluck picnic at Keller Lake on June 16. For those interested, there will be an organized bike ride to Keller Lake (details below)
After Divine Liturgy there will be coffee in Archangel Michael Hall and a snack to fortify those biking to the park. (For bicyclists who are bringing food for the picnic, drivers will be available to transport your contribution—please see Mina Jacobs - firstname.lastname@example.org; 907-306-7092/)
We’ll meet at shelter no. 6 (a slightly larger pavilion than we’ve had in the past). Here is a map of the park with the location of our reserved shelter. On the day of the picnic, there will also be directions to Keller Lake Park from Holy Trinity at the candle stand. The picnic usually begins about 12:30–12:45 pm and lasts until about 3-3:30.
We hope you can join us! This Keller Lake excursion is always a wonderful celebration for our parish. (Contact Mina with any questions.)
Biking to Keller Lake on June 16Bikers will leave after a quick snack in Archangel Michael Hall. Bottled water will be provided. The ride will be almost entirely on off-street trails, and the pace will be slow.
Children are welcome. If you don’t ride with your child, please identify another adult who will be responsible for him/her. If you would like to serve as a responsible adult, please let Eric Saathoff (email@example.com) or Dan Bassett (firstname.lastname@example.org) know. Bikes can be safely stored in the Archangel Michael garage. Please bring them to the garage between 9:45 and 10 am on the day of the picnic.
Please note that there will be no organized return bike trip from the picnic grounds to the church; please make your own arrangements if necessary.
Safety note: Helmets are required. Please make sure your bike is in rideable condition—tires properly inflated, working brakes, chain and shifting mechanisms.
