A few weeks ago I asked for your support in raising funds to support the work and ministry of Bishop Athanasios Akunda in Kenya.  I am happy to announce that our fund raising efforts were very successful and sent off to Kenya to help in the important ministry work of this dedicated hierarch of the Kenyan Greek Orthodox Church.  The monies that were sent will help Bishop Akunda in his transportation needs as well as the needs of the 120 clergy families that serve the largest diocese in Kenya.  If you did not have an opportunity to offer your financial support please know that we will seek contributions every two months in an attempt to support this important missionary work in Kenya. Thank you for your support and thank you for your prayers.

This past Sunday we celebrated the special relationship between Godparents and their Godchildren.  We were also invited to a delicious brunch prepared by Mark and Sonya Rowen and members of our Holy Cross community to celebrate Godparent Sunday and witness a preview of our Holy Cross Dance Groups who are preparing to compete at this year's Folk Dance Festival in Anaheim over President's Day Weekend, February 11-15, 2016.  The funds raised from the brunch will help fund our Dance Groups and Youth Council activities here at Holy Cross.  We are blessed to witness a very active youth ministry here at Holy Cross and we thank Father John, Konstantine Salmas, Kathy Roque, Paul Flocas and all of our Council members for their unselfish efforts in planning excellent activities for our Orthodox Youth and their families. We wish our Dance Groups, Parnassos, Thavma, Nea Zoi, and Levendia much success at FDF.  We also encourage even more involvement from our families throughout the year, helping to bring all closer to Christ and His Church.
