We will have a general cleaning of the church for Nativity on Saturday, December 23rd at 10:00 am. Some of the things that need to be done are: remove wax from carpet and floor, clean vigil lamps, dust woodwork, shelves, tops of icons, chandeliers, stair banisters, windowsills (including in cloakroom and stairwell leading up to choir loft), clean kitchen, move rummage sale things to Pushkin hall. There is a lot of work to do so please come help!

Vigil lamps (lampadi)

Also, as discussed at the last sisterhood meeting, we will be asking ladies to "adopt" a vigil lamp (lampada) for cleaning. There are 12 big vigil lamps and 9 smaller ones. Distributing this responsibility among all of us, each family would have one lampada. These should be cleaned before Nativity and then each month by that family. If Mila has not approached you yet, please consider emailed her and asking in church which one your family could take responsibility for.
