Elinor Bourjaily College Scholarship Application

Gail Malaniak of St. Matthew the Evangelist Orthodox Church writes:

In 2018, the Elinor Bourjaily College Scholarship Application is being sent digitally to all parishes, and then forwarded to individual college students in each parish.

Due to our church fire, it would be best for the students to submit their completed applications digitally as well. However, a P.O. Box is included on the forms if they prefer to send them through the U.S. Postal service. All information for submitting the applications is on the enclosed forms.

Thank you for your help and I pray you have a Blessed Lenten Season. Please keep our parish in your prayers. May Elinor's memory be eternal!

 

20th Annual Midwest Diocese Basketball Tournament is a Slam Dunk

On January 19-21, 2018, St. George Church of Canton, Ohio hosted the 20th Annual Midwest Diocese Basketball Tournament. Twenty years ago, Canton's Teen SOYO initiated this tournament and it has grown over the years to become a mini-convention drawing youth from around the diocese. His Grace Bishop ANTHONY presided over the weekend, ordaining Deacon Anthony Westerman of Louisville, KY during Sunday's Hierarchical Divine Liturgy. Bishop ANTHONY also presented the Archdiocese Meritorious Service Award to Mrs. Sadie Kannam of Canton on behalf of His Eminence Metropolitan JOSEPH.

Deacon Anthony presented a retreat on Friday evening titled "The Armor of God," tying in his own personal experience as a U.S. Marine who is now looking forward to become a future chaplain in the U.S. Navy. On Saturday, basketball games were held among three divisions with much excitement amid cheers and encouragement. Following Great Vespers on Saturday evening, Canton SOYO President Mareena Michael welcomed everyone to the Awards Banquet and Hafli that topped off a beautiful day of great sportsmanship and fellowship.
