Hi Everyone,
I have heard from Fr. Gary periodically by email when he checks in to make sure everyone is alright.  He and his family are having a wonderful time on the island of Kefalonia.  They are staying in Argostoli and have visited Myrtos Beach and the Blue Caves at Zakinthos. 
I wanted to remind everyone of several important things this weekend:
1)  The Rummage Sale in the conference room (right inside the front gate of the church) begins this Saturday.
2)  The ladies of Philoptochos are putting on a gyros lunch after church Sunday for $5 per person.
3)  We are sharing the parking lot with another church this Sunday; Calvary Nexus is holding their annual "Church in the Park" event right across the parking lot from us and some spaces will be blocked.  If there are parking attendants when you turn into the lot, just tell them you attend St. Demetrios.
Parking may be scarce, so if you can walk a small distance, please park out on Eston Street or in the lot close to the tennis courts so that our parishioners who need assistance or can't walk very far get the front row parking.  The park event begins at 9:45 am, so you may also want to arrive for church earlier than usual to make sure you have time to park and get into church before 10 am. 
Thanks for your patience; it's only one Sunday and we want to be hospitable!:>)  You can email or call the office if you have further questions.
Thank you!

President’s Message: Tom Vegos

Dear fellow Parishioners,

As we close out the first quarter of 2014, I thought it would be a good time to reflect back on our achievements over the past

three months and share our successes and areas that need additional improvement. Along with Father Gary, your parish council has been working hard to ensure that our community grows both spiritually and in a manner whereupon the business aspects of running a parish are addressed in a timely and orderly fashion. During this period there have been great advances in our Agape Building Project:

The concrete foundation was poured for the first and second floors.

The steel skeleton of the building was erected from the foundation.

The Cross was hosted to the top of the building and landscaping has begun.

Exterior and interior walls are being built.

Our construction loan was approved by our bankers and after our lunch with our loan officer and the bank’s president we

feel confident that a “take out” loan will be approved in 2015. Basically this will convert our current construction loan into a traditional loan product. On the ecclesiastical side, Father Gary has started or reestablished programs including FIRE (Family) ... read more
