Prophet Jonah (9th c. B.C.)

Dear Parishioners, Glory to Jesus Christ!

We need YOU to make our directory complete! To celebrate our 90th Anniversary and strengthen the bond within our congregation, we welcome you to be a part of our upcoming new directory.

A new directory:  
•  Preserves this special time in the life of our church
•  Becomes a lasting record of our current membership  
•  Helps us connect faces with names

We are partnering with Lifetouch for this important project. Lifetouch is providing the directory at no cost to our church. Every family photographed receives a complimentary directory and an 8x10 portrait. You can sign up for photography online at our church website at stjohnuoc.org or email / phone me with the date, time and number of people to be photographed.

Thursday, November 17 from 2pm to 9pm
Friday, November 18 from 2pm to 9pm
Saturday, November 19 from 10am to 5pm

For your convenience, all photography and portrait viewing will take place at our church with NO sitting fee. You will have a variety of poses taken. One pose will be selected for the directory. In addition to your complimentary 8x10, you will have the opportunity to purchase additional portraits on the day of your portrait session. Lifetouch’s portrait price list is attached to this letter.

Be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to be professionally photographed. We are looking forward to seeing you in our directory.  I am encouraging 100% participation! If you are out of town or unable to attend the photo session, please contact me for available options. You may also submit your own photo for a fee of $10.00.

Our directory is open for sponsorship from business people: 1/8 page (business card size) – $100
You may also place your “in memory of” and “in celebration of” message using 1/4 page – $50;
1/2 page – $100; and Full Page – $200.

Parish organizations will be photographed Sunday, November 20 following the Divine Liturgy. Organizations to be photographed are: Parish Council, Choir, Altar Boys, Readers, Jr. UOL, Sisterhood Executive Board, Sisterhood, Social Club Board, Church School and Ukrainian Dancers.

Any friends or other family you have are invited to make an appointment to be photographed also. They will not be listed in the parish directory. See coupon inside.
If any questions arise just ask Pam Scannell, Dr. Peter Hatala or me.

With love in Christ,
Fr. Ivan Synevskyy

P.S. Your photography session will take about an hour, during which time you will check-in, be photographed and view your portraits.
