This is not just about learning, it is also about sharing, in our uniqueness as women, the journey we are on toward our own salvation and sainthood. The group meets approximately every other Tuesday in the Fireside Room. The church is open for personal prayer and coffee will be served in the Fireside Room at 9:30 am. The study is begins at 10 and ends at 11:15. The following is the list of remaining dates for the year:  Jan 20; Feb 3, 17; Mar 3, 17; April 14, 28; May 12. Please come and invite others!

Annual Metropolis Folk Dance Festival
Hosted by St. Paul Hellenic Dancers
North Royalton, OH

Let them praise His name with dance; Let them sing praise to Him…  -Psalm 149:3 – Metropolitan Savas, who will be in attendance at St. Paul, has challenged ALL of our Metropolis Dance Groups to participate in the “non-competitive” weekend where the participants will learn new dances and make new friends. The workshops will be led by Guest Instructors from Chicago, Cleveland and Toronto. If you have never attended, this is a great “family-friendly” event! If your parish does not have a dance group, you may attend as an individual. This is the 24th time that our Metropolis has hosted this event.  Click here for more information.
