FLOWER FUNDRAISER: We are currently holding a flower fundraiser for our building fund. Fundraiser sheets may be picked up near the candle stand. Fifty percent of sales will go back to St. Iakovos for our building fund. This is a great way to get your spring flowers for your garden. If you have any questions please see Mr. Lawrence Eleftheri.
AMAZON SMILE: Shopping at Amazon can now help out St. Iakovos. Visit smile.amazon.org and choose St. Iakovos as the charity to benefit. You then shop Amazon just like you normally do. There is no cost to you, and after checkout a percentage of the sale will go to St. Iakovos. What better way to shop and help the Church at the same time!
FATHER JIM OUT OF TOWN: Father will be attending the Archiocese Benefits Committee Meetings at the Archdiocese in NY City from April 17th through April 19th.

OLIVE OIL FOR ALTAR: We are in need of Olive Oil for the Altar. You can donate a bottle to the Church by dropping it off during office hours M-F from 9-2. You may also drop it off at the candle stand to any council member during any Church service.
