THE MONDAY FIVE: THIS WEEK AT STV  


PRESANCTIFIED LITURGY AND LENTEN POTLUCK THIS WEDNESDAY – LAST OF 2024!

ONE: SACRED ALASKA FILM SCREENING – THANK YOU!
Thank you to everyone who made our screening of “Sacred Alaska” such a success on Sunday, April 21! Special thanks to Katherine Bower, who did the hard work behind the scenes to give us this special blessing during Great Lent! You can’t buy tickets anymore of course, but you could still make a donation if you’d like to. We haven’t reached our goal of $1000 just yet, so let’s see if we can do that!
DONATE – SACRED ALASKA SCREENING/A2OCA!

TWO: WE NEED A PRESCHOOL LEADER!
Ann Arbor Orthodox Classical Academy needs your help! We need someone to lead our Preschool program. The leader needs to have the credentials/education/experience FOUND HERE. BUT - if you have a Pedagogical education of any kind and are willing to help please let us know (even if not in Early Childhood Education) - we may be able to get a waiver from the state. :) Please contact Fr. Gregory or Irene (imelabiotis@a2oca.org) to learn more. Please help if you can – we need you!

THREE: HOLY WEEK/BRIGHT WEEK AT STV!
As of today we are in the last week of Great Lent. Friday evening we begin Holy Week with Matins for Lazarus Saturday. NOW is the time to plan your Holy Week and Bright Week. At STV we will, God willing, have Divine Services every evening and every morning of these two weeks. We need lots of singers and readers to help with that, and we have a SIGN UP SHEET that is meant for this exact purpose. But this note is more focused on the SCHEDULE OF SERVICES and your interaction with this rare opportunity to be very often in God’s House as we prepare for this most important time of year for us as Orthodox Christians. Visit the schedule. Open you calendar. Add the services you want to attend to your calendar. THEN: add one more. Join us as your schedule allows, but challenge yourself in this regard for your own spiritual good!

FOUR: HAVE YOU REGISTERED YOUR CHILD FOR A2OCA? HAVE YOU TOLD EVERYONE YOU KNOW?
Tuition for the 2024-25 school year full time program is set at $6,000 per year, or $500 per month. THIS IS SIGNIFICANTLY LESS THAN PREVIOUS ESTIMATES! If you have a child from 4 years old (Junior Kindergarten) to Second Grade REGISTER NOW! If you children older or younger than this, or you don’t have children: TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW! Don’t forget: there are other programs besides the full time program. CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE TO LEARN MORE! As we post information on Social Media spread that with zeal! SPREAD THIS FLYER FAR AND WIDE! We all have work to do to make sure our school is successful – join the winning team and let’s make this happen! And if you have ideas about how to best spread the word, please share those with us!

FIVE: SPECIAL SERVICES FOR FR. VICTOR 5/14/24 IN FERNDALE
As there are generally no memorial services during Holy Week or Bright Week, with Archbishop Peter’s blessing we will gather in Ferndale on the “Day of Rejoicing (Radonitsa)”, May 14, 2024, for a special memorial Liturgy and meal in honor of Fr. Victor Trotskyy. Fr. Victor reposed in the Lord earlier this Great Lent, and his 40th day is Bright Monday. Thus, we have moved his memorial to Radonitsa. THERE WILL BE NO DIVINE SERVICES FOR RADONITSA AT STV.


NO CURIOUS VLAD TONIGHT DUE TO UNCTION IN FERNDALE
