It’s that time of the year again…for the Bald and Beautiful team to shave our heads at the upcoming Annual St. Baldrick’s event on Saturday, March 3rd at the Westfield Galleria at Roseville, 12 noon - 4 PM @ Center Court.
For many years, members of our community have been so generous in supporting the Bald and Beautiful Team, including Fr. Christopher (it's his fifth year shaving his head) --especially last year when we were the area’s top fundraising team with $18,540 raised —donating funds to help cure childhood cancer.
This will be our 16th year of shaving at the annual St. Baldrick’s event. We have a great group of shavees again this year including a new team member -- Roseville City Councilmember John Allard! Our entire team is:
Dr. Tim Herman
Father Christopher Flesoras
Father Cliff Haggenjos
Mark Riffey and his son Evan
Jeremiah Smith and his son Brady
Free Kindle versions of Pascha at the Duck Pond and The Three-Day Pascha are available via Amazon through February 17. The Three-Day Pascha uses simple verse to engage children in the story of our Lord’s crucifixion, entombment, and Resurrection. In Pascha at the Duck Pond, as the animals at the Duck Pond journey through Great Lent towards Pascha (Easter), they learn that Lent is not about the rules, but allowing God to change our hearts through love and repentance.
By the Grace of God and in accordance with the Apostolic Tradition of the Holy Orthodox Church, our pastoral assistant, Jason Ivey, will be ordained to the Holy Diaconate and the Holy Priesthood through the laying on of hands and invocation of the Holy Spirit by His Eminence Metropolitan GERASIMOS of San Francisco on Saturday, April 14 and Sunday, April 15.

Please keep Jason, his wife Renee, and their families in your prayers as he prepares for ordination. May our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, through the intercessions of his patron saint, Seraphim of Sarov, grant him every good gift to strengthen, inspire, guide and bless his ministry.
Formal invitations to, more information about and ways you can offer your assistance in preparation for his ordinations is forthcoming. Again, "worthy!
