Blood Drive - January 30

On Saturday January 30, St. Athanasius hosted its 2nd community blood drive. With the help of the American Red Cross and our community, we collected 36 units of blood.  Each donation has the potential to save 3 lives. Therefore, this drive resulted in the possibility of helping over 100 people in need.  St. Athanasius hopes to make these blood drives a regular occurrence within our community.  The demand for blood donations are always constant and we hope to do our part to continually help aide in that need. We thank you for your support (past, present, and future) and we pray that you are well!

Your donated items and generous monetary donations that you contributed to our outreach effort for Rosie's Place, was a great success.  We are now purchasing and assembling approximately 160 Dignity Kits for the womans' shelter, in Boston.


 from Fr. Bob

It is with profound love and respect that we congratulate all the newly elected and appointed members to our Parish Council.During the last 4 years Dean Ioakimidis had alongside his co-Council members kept the beacon of St. Athanasius the Great lit and moving forward despite great opposition. What was gravely needed was leadership to actualize the objectives of the Parish.Upon my arrival as Proistamenos at St. Athanasius the Great, I had three immediate strategic goals.  First to hold a long-awaited General Assembly Meeting.  Second, to hold Parish Council elections, and third to have our newly elected Parish Council member elections ratified.  I am happy to announce that all three of my objectives have been met.  We look forward to a very blessed new chapter in the life of the church. Please join us in any way that your heart moves you to serve the church and join the mission of the church to bring the light of Christ to everyone.

Candles with Jesus

We understand that during this difficult time of the pandemic, it can be difficult to be physically away from your church.  While we can pray from home, you may miss the ability to light a candle in church.  
Let us light a candle for you at St. Athanasius.

"I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  (John 8:12)


Please be aware of an email scam impersonating Fr. Robert Archon 

Please note that many parishioners have reported receiving an email from Fr. Bob asking for a favor and soliciting donations in the form of gift cards.  These emails are a scam using a fake email account impersonating Fr. Bob. While the “From” name on the account uses his name, it is from an imposter account.  Please disregard these email and do not respond to all such messages as they are not from Fr. Bob.
