Please pick up some flyers and distribute them on your side of town. Encourage pre-ordering so we can have enough cookies on hand.

Please remember the sick of the parish and their family & friends. May God’s healing power be upon them.

Parish Prayer

Oh God the benefactor of our souls, Grant that by the prayers of St. Athanasius our parish patron,
We may be blessed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Grant that our community would grow in Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Piety, Knowledge and Fear of the Lord. Grant that our community would grow in Charity, Faith, Prudence, Fortitude, Hope, Justice and Temperance.

Oh Confessor and Bishop Athanasius, you said, “God became man so that man could become like God.” Pray for us that we would grow in Spirit.

Through the prayers of the Most Holy Theotokos and all the saints, now and forever. Amen.
