St Anna's Ladies Society

The Ladies Society reflects the mission of the Holy Apostles Orthodox Church by promoting Spiritual Growth, Providing Opportunities for Parishioners to Bond as Family, and Practice Serving those in Need.


Promoting Spiritual Growth: the Ladies participate in several Book Studies and Bible studies during the course of the year.  We participate in Lenten Retreats both physically at our church and virtually through Zoom.  We decorate our church for Nativity, Pascha, and Pentecost and adore our icons for the Great Feast Days.  The Ladies organize the baking of Holy Bread or Phosphora for our church. When participating in each, we experience a deeper sense of Jesus Christ.


  Providing Opportunities for Parishioners to Bond as Family: the Ladies get together for various reasons…for Quarterly meetings at restaurants or fun events as Secret Sister and our St.Anna Slava. The Ladies’ focus much of their time on our Church and look at it as our home.  The Ladies work together to organize the Fellowship Meals each Sunday and work together to cook, clean, and keep our Church beautiful. When completing each task or event, we bond as a family.


 Practice  Serving those in Need: Our Almsgiving includes those both inside our Parish and outside in

 the community with food, clothing, school supplies, and furniture. We have several ministries, including the Freezer, College Student, and Card Ministry. We also provide various monetary donations. Our fundraisers, such as our Christmas Cookie Sale and Virtual Auction, help us to accomplish these goals to help those in need!

Upcoming Events

Secret Sister

We drew for our Secret Sisters last Sunday and I am happy to say that 15 Ladies will be participating.  Secret Sisters...please remember to place your first little gift on the back table of the Fellowship Hall on Sunday January 28th.

I want to emphasize that our Reveal Party at Jeanette Burt's on February 19th is for EVERYONE and not those that are participating in Secret Sister! We will be discussing the Pascha schedule and choosing a book for our Book Study during the Lenten Season.

❤St. Valentine's Day Treats and Crafts❤

Please plan to bring 2 dozen cookies and/or crafts to our St. Valentine's craft and treat sale.  (I am getting excited about what cookies to bake....I hear Shawna is getting her jade plants ready for the sale). On Feb. 12, please place your items on the "Valentine Table" before Liturgy.  You can share this little blurb with your friends/family:

Do you have several people on your Valentine's list? Don't wait until the last minute or make a trip to a store...instead, you can purchase a number of delicious sweets and/or gifts for your "sweetie" at our Valentine Craft and Treat sale on Feb. 12th. All donations will go to the Holy Apostles Church Building Fund so SPLURGE!
