Your help is needed. Please call the office to volunteer and also plan to attend! LIBRARY RENOVATIONS by Louis Bakris The Fr. Anthony Kanavos library and conference room provides a new look and functionality to our church s space, space that can be optimized and tailored for all affiliated organizations. Along with the renovations such as bookcases and new carpeting, a computer with full wireless internet has been added. The purpose of these changes is to enable interaction with exterior resources and allow more flexibility in media usage. This translates into all organizations who use that room are now able to use any resource from an internet webpage like YouTube or Google, in addition to PowerPoint presentations, word documents, pictures, and movie clips are now available. All these options and more can now be a part of any meeting or Sunday school class. Moreover, with the wireless internet the archdiocese website will now be available as a resource for all different organizations and well as a teaching resource for Sunday school. Specifically, the Sunday school can use it to obtain information on topics like, daily scripture readings, access to the library of icons, and even live broadcasts of the Divine Liturgy that can be used to teach without disturbing the actual service. Additionally, the computer allows the Sunday school to watch a webcam broadcast of the liturgy, giving our Sunday school children the opportunity to discuss and explore the liturgy for further understanding without having to be quiet in Church. What does this mean? Each organization within the church will reap benefits. In addition, to the benefits reaped by the Sunday school other organizations would benefit as well. This includes use of the new wireless internet for the music program to find different songs online on websites like YouTube or being able to play the CD on the TV s speakers or the parish council meeting being able to display different documents up on the TV so they can be discussed communally. This will also carry over into the woman s Philoptochos as they use material on the web to be shared in real time with the group and save Xerox costs. This system has been programmed and geared for the layman of the church to use with everything preinstalled and easy to access so that there does not have to be any learning steps to it but rather just pick it up and use it.

ATTENION COLLEGE STUDENTS The school year is here and with it many of our young people are away for school. College is a challenge not only in education but socially and spiritually. Hopefully, those raised in Christian households have the armor to face the worst challenges. However, there comes a time when even the strongest armor weakens. That is why we are asking for all college students addresses (including ) whether at home or away, so that we may keep in touch with them. Information may be ed to the office or called in (219) HAVE YOU CHANGED YOUR ADDRESS? If you move or stop your mail temporarily, please notify Mari at the office ( ) so that we will not have the additional expense of paying to have the mail returned to us. Your help with this matter will be greatly appreciated. THE CHRISTMAS FAST The period from November 15 th until Christmas Day is a period of prayer and fasting for Orthodox Christians. Although it is popular in our society to fill the month of December with Christmas parties and celebrations, this is contrary to Orthodox tradition. For this reason, we try to refrain from celebrations; the proper time for celebrating is the twelve days of Christmas from December 25 through January 6, Theophany. If we are serious about preserving our Orthodox Faith, it is important to observe these aspects of our Holy Tradition! NOTICE Organizations and Groups need to clean the Meeting Room and/or Coffee Fellowship room after they have had a meeting or activity in the room. Please leave it in the condition you found it or even better! ΘΡΗΣΚΕΥΤΙΚΟ ΗΜΕΡΟΛΟΓΙΟΝ Κυριακη 1 Νοεµβριου 2009 ΚΥΡΙΑΚΗ Ε ΛΟΥΚΑ ΤΩΝ ΑΓΙΩΝ ΑΝΑΓΥΡΩΝ Ορθρος 8:30 π.µ. Θ.
