Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward.  You are serving the Lord Christ.  ~  Colossians 3:23-24

ALTAR BOYS

We Encourage all of the young men of our parish to serve as Altar Boys at St. John's.  It is an important job with many responsibilities to perform such as candle bearers during services, assisting the Priest with the censer and Communion, and leading processions in the Church.  Altar Boys also have the opportunity to attend the annual diocesan Altar Boy Retreat in Johnstown, PA.  It is a great three day trip of prayer and fun!  If your son would like to serve as an Altar Boy, please contact Fr. David.

CHOIR

Choral music is an integral part of the liturgies of the Orthodox faith.  Our people have a rich heritage of both liturgical and folk singing that St. John's has continued to be a proud part of.  Don't be shy! Come on up to the choir loft and join the mixed choir on Sunday morning, or during any other services, and let your voice be heard.  Rehearsals are held at St. John's on Monday evenings at 7pm.  Please try to fit rehearsals into your busy schedule.  Contact John Galpin for details.

Junior R Club

Youth involvement at St. John's is always changing.  The Junior R Club is now part of our Sunday School Program and does many service projects for both the church and the community, as well as social and fund raising activities throughout the year.   Contact Lynne Goetz or jill Fazekas for details.



Kitchen Crew

Our modern kitchen st St. John's seems to always be in use! Whether it's an after-church breakfast, Sunday Coffee, Holiday baking of breads, nut & poppy rolls, pagachi, pirohi, soup sales, or our annual Christmas Fair restaurant.  St. John's monthly pirohi sales have been a big hit as well!  There's always something in the ovens!  The cooking aromas coming up into the church pews have made many a stomach rumble waiting for Communiion on a Sunday morning! Please make some time to help out and volunteer in the kitchen.  You will enjoy good company, learn our ethnic traditions, peel a few potatoes, and pinch a few pirohi.  Oh, and of course, wash a few pans.  Any time you can spare would be greatly appreciated and rewarding.  Contact Fr. David or Carol Gabor Feduik for details.

Senior Citizens
Come and join our Senior Citizen Fellowship every Tuesday from 12pm to 3pm in St. John's Church Auditorium!  Socialize, play some cards, catch up on some gossip, tell a few jokes, enjoy a guest speaker, go on a day trip, etc.  Contact Joe Chirsky for details.



Senior R Club
Adult involvement is always changing at St. John's as well.  Many adult activities are planned throughout the year that have included trips, dinners, auctions, wine tasting, etc.  The annual St. John's Sr. R Club Scholarship is our main funding accomplishment.  Awarded each Spring, the Senior R Club has provided over $176,000 in scholarships to many of our full-time student parishioners since 1972!  Contact Carol Gabor Feduik for details.



Sunday School
St. John's provides a Sunday School program for children ages 3 to 18 and meets after the Divine Liturgy each Sunday from 10:30am to 11:30am.  Our Sunday School provides your children with many opportunities to learn about their faith, to grow spiritually, and to build their relationship with God as they follow the path of salvation.  It also allows them to forge friendships that can last a lifetime.  The children are the present and the future of our church, and St. john's Sunday School helps them reach this potential.  The Junior R Club is also part of our Sunday School program.  Contact  Lynne Goetz or Chrissy Adzima for details.
