HUMAN TRAFFICKING SEMINAR - Saturday, March 14
The Women’s Wellness and Awareness Ministry of our Metropolis and our Philoptochos present a Human Trafficking Seminar on Saturday, March 14 from 11-3.  All donations will benefit rehabilitation services for those who have been victims of human trafficking.  This is a problem which is not limited to areas of poverty or faraway places.  It happens in families of privilege and on the school yard, online and in the workplace.  Come and find out how to be aware, prepared and protect your family.  Dr. Tanya Spirtos is putting together an amazing program of experts on the subject.  Bring a friend, neighbor or co-worker.

Adults
 
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe. (Hebrews 12:28)

As single adults or married adults with children, getting connected at Holy Cross is about relationships that get beneath the surface. We are bombarded daily with all sorts of messages that pull us in many different ways. Our vision gets cloudy and our relationship with God compromised. Building meaningful and transparant relationships in the context of our church community is the way to strengthen and encourage us to walk on in the path toward our Lord.

Ways and opportunities to get connected:
  1. Studies in the Faith - A Catechism and continuing education class taught by Konstantine Salmas that meets Wednesday evenings to personally engage the Greek Orthodox Church.

  2. Spiritual Odyssey – A one day event during the beginning of Lent to reflect on ourselves and our Lenten journey.

  3. Family Sharing Program – Join each December in the sponsoring of a Christmas food and toy collection drive for the needy.

  4. Sunday Ushering - Help maintain order during the various parts of Sunday and other services.

  5. Church Choir - Join the Choir in providing the important service of liturgical accompaniment and chanting during Sunday Divine Liturgy, Holy Week, and special Feast Days.

  6. Greek Festival - Plug into one of the many groups that help put on our very successful Greek Festival during the Labor Day weekend.

  7. Philoptochos - Join the organization of Orthodox Christian women dedicated to providing service and assistance to both individuals and groups in need.

  8. Chanting Group - Learn the ancient Byzantine chant and help during Sunday liturgy and Holy Week.

  9. Be a Youth Leader - Help plan youth events and discuss topics relevant to our young people. Participate in the various youth activities of our church.

  10. Help serve meals – During Palm Sunday, Anastasi, Easter Picnic, Fellowship, Greek Night, Crab Feed, Etc.
