Fall 2014 General Assembly Meeting ~ Sunday, November 2nd ~
Following Divine Liturgy: The UPR requires a 10 day notice to all
parishioners of a General Assembly meeting. The notice gives the
time, date and agenda for the meeting. All this information is
printed in The Voice and constitutes notice because it is mailed out
far in advance to comply with the 10 day notice. Unfortunately, due
to a Post Office error The Voice was not delivered in time. We hope
that you will all make every effort to attend the rescheduled
meeting. Only Stewards in good standing may vote. Please note: If
you have not signed a 2014 Stewardship pledge card, you are asked to
do so at this time.
