Family Movie Night - Friday, Feb 5 at 6:00 POSTPONED

Mark Your Calendar

Tonight's Family Movie Night has been postponed due to the inclement weather. We will announce a new date soon.


We will be featuring two movies on the same night so more families can join in the fun – A Disney movie for young children will be shown in the Senior's Room (parental supervision required), and “Soul Surfer” will be played in the church hall for older kids and adults! Soul Surfer is the story of teenage surfer Bethany Hamilton who overcomes the odds and her own fears of returning to the water after losing her left arm in a shark attack.


Our Family Movie Nights are an opportunity to gather with our brothers and sisters in Christ for fellowship and Christian-themed movies in the hall at St. Dimitrie. A light dinner will be served, followed by movie snacks. Kids are encouraged to wear PJs and bring a blanket, pillow, and a friend so they can relax and enjoy the movie.


While this is event is free, donations and R.S.V.P.'s are appreciated. Please contact Linda Kolton or Marianne Ocrain,


Sponsored by Sunday School and MacAROY.

Sunday School Classes Begin
Sunday, October 4,
10:30 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.

Please note: This is a slight change from prior years when we were striving to begin at 10:15 a.m. Students attending the second service will be escorted upstairs to church to sit with their families.

Please help your child to be on time and attend as often as possible. Consistency and continuity are extremely important for your child during these years. We prepare carefully each week to begin meaningful teaching from the very beginning of the class, and your child's arrival on time helps the whole class to get the most out of the session. While we are always happy to welcome the children to class, arriving late means we have to stop, get settled and often start over again which is unfair to the children who have arrived on time. If you have any questions, please contact Linda Kolton at 203-696-0807 or


We know mornings are tough and we appreciate your best efforts to get here on time!


St. Dimitrie Donates Four Boxes to the IOCC


Four boxes of items purchased by our parishioners and with money donated by the Ladies Auxiliary and its members were mailed to the International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) on November 19th.

The generous donation of the Ladies' Auxiliary and several individuals at the August meeting funded 16 School Kits, 12 Health Kits, and one Cleanup Kit. Other parishioners bought and assembled 16 School Kits, 14 Health Kits, and seven Baby Kits.

We thank everyone who donated complete kits, money, donated time to assemble, package, and mail the kits, and the anonymous donor who paid for shipping. We especially thank Oana Zharku for initiating and supporting this project throughout the past year!
