Each year as we begin the Nativity Fast, the period of lent before Christmas, Fr. George brings out an advent wreath. It holds seven candles and, each week of lent, he invites members of the community to light one of them.
The third candle represents LOVE. Fr George asked the young girls of the community, Anna, Elenora, Anna Grace, Gigi, Sophia and Hazel, to light the candle as we sang Good King Wenceslas.
The second candle represents HOPE. Fr George asked the altar boys, Christian Coca, David Geer to light the candle as we sang O Holy Night.
The first candle is for FAITH. Fr George invited our Sunday School teachers, Linda Kolton, Claudia Epure and Mary Ianus, to begin this annual tradition, as we sang O Come All Ye Faithful.
The Lesko and Polke Funeral Home partnership has been disolved. The Frank Polke and Son Funeral Home will continue its services independently at a new location in the Spear-Miller Funeral Home building at 39 Benson Road, Fairfield, CT.
Many families in our community have used the services of Frank Polke Funeral Home and, in turn, the Polke family has supported St. Dimitrie since we began almost a century ago. All of Polke services and attention to special details and traditions remain the same and all pre-need contracts will continue to be honored.
For any questions, Frank can be reached at (203) 556-5978 or (203) 556-5140.
Our condolences to the family of Florence Godin on her recent passing. Florence was an epitrop for many years and a member of the choir know for her beautiful soprano voice. Her funeral will be held at St Dimitrie at 1:30 on Sunday November 26. Calling hours will from 12:30-1:30 before the service.

We celebrated the 97th Birthday of our oldest parishioner, Andrew Schilira.
Andrew is the sole remaing veteran from World War II at St Dimitrie and he entertains everyone with stories about his hometown of Woonsocket, RI, his military experiences and his friends and family in our community. The coffee hour was sponsored by his friends and fellow Navy sailors Paul & Laura Bashar, John & Laurie Boudreau and Paul & Denise Kubiak.
May God Bless you Andrew and thank you all for your service.
Please introduce yourself to Fr. Deacon Spiridon, his wife Sarah and Lazarus, their one year old son.
