KIDZ4KIDZ CHRISTMAS DRIVE Is in full force collecting new toys from November 1st to December 12th. We will be spreading Christmas cheer to some of our local, extraordinary special needs’ kids and children in our local shelters. Once again, we are requesting new, clean, non-violent toys. Also, we are in need of jeans, socks, shower gift sets (boys and girls), earbuds and touchscreen gloves. Please NO stuffed animals. Items may be brought on Sundays and placed in the bin, which will be located in the entrance (exo-Narthex) of the Cathedral or dropped off at the church office during the week. For questions, please call Eva Kostides at 219-308-8370.

HARVEST FOR THE HUNGRY THANK YOU: As I look back on these past 18 years of Harvest for the Hungry, it humbles me to know the impact that this ministry has had in our surrounding communities. We give people HOPE. Those people in need know we see them, care for them and love them with no judgment. We give these people not only a reason to SURVIVE in their circumstances but to THRIVE and GROW in life. How? We show them God‘s unconditional love. Thank you so very much to our spiritual leaders, generous donors, incredible volunteers, all the words of encouragement and to this amazing parish of Ss. Constantine and Helen, which truly is a beacon of light and hope in this dark and depressing world. - Eva Kostides
