On Saturday, December 10, St. Gregory’s Outreach committee created 42 Christmas packages for our senior parishioners. Each Christmas tote bag was filled with homemade Armenian treats, jams, sweets, and a Christmas ornament. The team of amazing volunteers included bakers, shoppers, assemblers, and a delivery team. Der Mesrob led the team of Women’s Guild members, parish council members and parishioners as they filled each tote with Christmas cheer and lots of love. The Atrium was filled with music and singing and friendship: it was St. Gregory’s parish at its best!!! Thank you to all who supported this effort especially Lisa K and Lauren K for helping Alicia W manage this effort. Thanks to Anoush G for supplying the tote bags, and Annie O for making a generous donation to help defray the costs of the project.
We’ve heard from many of our senior parishioners who were thrilled to receive such a special gift. If you would like to be a part of this St. Gregory’s Outreach Committee please contact Dawn Papalian, Chair of the Women’s Guild or Alicia Devejian Wood.
