Dear Holy Trinity parishioners and friends,
Christian Stewardship is about becoming good caretakers of all that God has given us. God has given each of us special and unique gifts. And through Holy Scripture He teaches us all that we have is a loan. He lends everything to us, and reminds us that one day He will ask us to give a detailed accounting of what we have done with the gifts He has given us. Archbishop Anastasios of Albania has noted that “we find ourselves by offering ourselves.” Have we learned the blessedness of generously giving to others of all we have?
On behalf of our parish council and our entire parish, we thank you for your support and we are
honored to make history together! !
Fr. Chrysanthos Kerkeres James Lakerdas
Administrative Proistamenos Parish Council President
