Choir 101-102: For Directors and Singers

This workshop ... sponsored by the diocesan Commission on Liturgical Music (CoLM) ... on 15 September in Rahway NY will provide tools necessary for beginning singers, conductors with limited experience, and "budding" conductors. It will provide basics of the skills required to sing/conduct Orthodox choirs. It will cover topics such as giving and getting pitches, singing in parts, following printed music, singing chant vs other music, producing a worshipful sound, and singing in an appropriate tempo. There will be ample practical work and time to ask and answer questions.

ANNUAL BIKE RIDE AT SAINT ANDREW'S CAMP

As the Camp’s chapel bell rings, so will start the Annual Saint Andrew’s Camp Bike Ride (SACBR). The bike ride is a charity event in an effort to support the camp. Each year the Ride is held on the 4th Saturday in August.  This year the Ride will be on Saturday, August 25th, 2018. Archbishop Michael has long rallied to “train up” our youth. His recent appeal to support the Camp was clear: “Saint Andrew’s Camp remains an invaluable way to link Orthodox Christian children to one another…”



Church School Workshops

Two Church School Workshops for coordinators, teachers, and anyone interested in the religious education of our children will be presented this year; one in Syracuse NY (August 18) and another in Paramus NJ (August 25). This year's presenter, Shelley Finkler, will explore a new method of Montessori-based Orthodox Christian Education. For information please click here >>>



FEAST-DAY: Dormition of the Theotokos (August 15th)

In giving birth
you preserved your virginity.
In falling asleep
you did not forsake the world,
O Theotokos.
You were translated to life
O Mother of Life,
and by your prayers
you deliver our souls from death.

Troparion Hymn
