Creative Festivals Winners Announced + June 25, 2011

Message from Donna Starke, Creative Festivals Coordinator:

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

As the coordinator of the Eastern Diocese, I would like to thank you, your Church School Coordinator and your young parishioners for participating in the Festivals. As you know this year’s theme is “Be mindful O Lord of the Priesthood, the Deaconate and every Priestly rank.” I am sure you will be pleased to see some of the artwork they have done and read some poems and essays showing how much of an impact you have on them! Attached you will find the list of winners for the 2011 Creative Festivals.

All students who participated will receive a ribbon, and winners in grades 1 through 12 will receive an icon in July at the Parish Life Conference from His Grace, Bishop Thomas. Please encourage winners from your parish to attend the awards ceremony. It is a lovely way for them to have their talents and efforts recognized.

At this time I ask that you make arrangements with someone in your parish to arrange to pick up all creative festival entries and prizes from the hotel at the close of the awards ceremony on Saturday, July 2.

If you have any questions, please contact me by email at or on my home phone.

Thank you again for your ongoing support.

In Christ,

Donna Starke

Creative Festivals Coordinator or (609)426-0429
