Opening of the Church Library - 10/14/12

The second event was on October 14. After the Divine Liturgy an official opening of the Church Library with Molieben being served took place in the parish hall. Books for the library came from different sources – some were already in the church, and some were either donated or purchased for the parishioners’ donations with a dedication to their loved ones. At the end of the service, Father Igor expressed his heartfelt thank you to all sponsors of the library, as well as to Matthew Galati, church librarian, who spent numerous hours in organizing, categorizing and cataloguing the books. Among his remarks, Father Igor also indicated that “religious education is a vital tool on the path to our salvation, and its importance cannot be underestimated.”
