Fellowship Annual Report January 2005

Nadia Doss

The fellowship committee worked very hard to put the "special" into our events: the church picnic, a new member's luncheon, Pascha, Christmas, New Year's Eve. We also provided support for the Patriot's Day program on September 11th. Thanks to everyone who helped out by donating homemade foods or rolling up their sleeves to aid in the clean-up. It was very much appreciated!

Special Events:

Picnic:

The annual summer picnic was a success, with over 100 people attending. We tried something new this year: an outdoor Divine Liturgy at the forest preserve with Bishop Job (who also served as a judge for the chili contest!). We were blessed with good weather and an unexpected last-minute surge of attendees.

Missionary Dinners:

In honor of Father Andrew and Pat Harrison's mission to India, we hosted the Mission Team Chicago for both a send-off and a welcome-home event for missionaries from the area. We enjoyed a potluck dinner fellowship and presentations from missionaries on their experiences.

New Year's Eve:

We finished out the year with A New Year's Eve party following Divine Liturgy. About 45 people attended. We were entertained by karaoke and the church's "house band," who put on a really fun show despite only a having a couple of practices.

Anniversary:

There was a small reception following Vespers on Saturday, Nov. 27th to celebrate the 100th anniversary of our church building. Parishioners of Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, the last parish to occupy the building, were invited. We had a humble turnout.

The parish's 20th anniversary banquet was held at the Chateau Del Mar (Hickory Hill Country Club) following a special Divine Liturgy. We were blessed with the presence of Metropolitan Theodosius and Bishop Job. Luba Johnson worked very hard to make the event special, and everyone seemed to enjoy it.

The ad book did well, turning a profit for the church. The committee, led by Diane Wilczak and George Poulos, saved on the printing by putting it together in-house.
