Study of Apostolic Fathers  - Interested? 

We invite you to participate in a study of the Apostolic Fathers along with the Haverhill parish following the model of Dr. Bruce Beck's summer patristic conference.  The current proposal is to meet every other week, alternating location, and to have a service followed by a 90 minute study.  All texts are included in Michael Holmes translation of the Apostolic Fathers (available from Amazon as a discounted English paperback or a heavily discounted Greek and English hardcover, highly recommended for those who read Greek).  We will read a section ahead of time and discuss together a selection of texts from that section. 

Please contact Fr. Costin if you are interested so that we can coordinate the best day and time to meet.  

Old Recipes with New Friends 

We have recently completed a four week cooking session with Greek delicacies, as well as Russian, Armenian, Romanian this fall as part of the Newburyport Adult and Community Education program.  The fee paid to the coordinator is donated to our Church.  The course is always taught with Parishioner Chefs.

This fun outreach is looking for a new coordinator.  Please contact Andrea Jones if cooking is your passion and you would like to coordinate this effort going forward.
