“God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9.7)
Each year, the Ladies Auxiliary Society of PANTANASSA, prepares and offers with gladness and willingness, a cheerful hospitality towards our elderly men and women.
This philanthropic activity will be repeated this year. Therefore an open invitation is addressed to our fathers and mothers, grandfathers and grandmothers to come forward, so as to give us the opportunity to express in practice our respect and love towards them.
The meal will take place on Meatfare Sunday, 27th February 2011, in our premises, as follows:
a) The people attending the Divine Liturgy at St Barnabas will enjoy the hospitality at St Barnabas Hall at 11.10 – 12.30 p.m.
b) All people attending the Divine Liturgy at St Mary’s Cathedral will enjoy the meal at St Mary’s Hall at 12.30 – 2.00 p.m.
Thus, we call upon the young generation to come forward and help serve the meals. We understand that the rest of you would want to contribute financially and in other ways, expressing in this way your love and respect towards the elderly. Divine Paul advises and teaches us to give cheerfully, as well as generously. Such a gesture pleases God and honours everyman.
