Special Parents Evening with Jacob Saylor - Monday, 7th May

posted May 2, 2012, 10:23 AM by fr.irenei@stjohnsacademysf.org
Our final Parents Evening of the current school year will take place this coming Monday, 7th May, from 7.00 p.m. in the Large Hall.

As a special treat for this last meeting, we will be welcoming Jacob Saylor as our speaker, to talk on the subject of ministering to Orthodox youth. Following completion of his seminary education and other works, Jacob took up the new role of Youth Minister at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church on Brotherhood Way, making him the only full-time, dedicated Youth Minister of any Orthodox Church in the Bay Area.

He is a dedicated, joyful, energetic man committed to infusing Orthodox children and young people with a love and zeal for their faith and life, and he has kindly agreed to speak with our parents and families on this important work, and how we can all contribute to encouraging and building up our Orthodox youth.

Please ensure that at least one parent from every family is present at this special evening, starting from 7.00 p.m. -- but if both parents can come, all the better (teachers are also warmly invited)! We will also be discussing some encouraging school news & business briefly after the talk.

Christ is risen!
