On Sunday, November 16, the St. Tikhon's Church School hosted a Pasta Dinner to raise money for their annual Nativity Fast charity project. The OCA Christmas Stocking Project was this year's focus.
The dinner was a great success, raising over $500 for needy Orthodox children around the world. The Church School students looked so festive in their Christmas colors, carrying their own Christmas stockings to collect donations for others. Everyone enjoyed a delicious lenten meal, prepared and served by the children and teachers, as Fr. Stephen Kopestonsky gave an informative talk on the Feasts and Customs of the Church.
Thanks be to God for richly blessing this charitable effort. What a wonderful way to begin the Nativity Fast!
