Here at Christ the Saviour we not only believe in praying together at the Divine Liturgy but also sharing a meal together in the trapeznaya or church hall. Some have called it the Liturgy after the Liturgy. It is where we continue the joy we have received through our fellowship at lunch.
There are many ways that you can be a part of this:
Simply enjoy the food and put a donation in the basket (we do not sell the food at fixed prices.)
Sign up together with a friend or two to provide a meal. (You can give your receipts to the treasurer for reimbursement if you like.) This could be as and when is convenient for you (even if it is just once or twice a year on a particular occasion e.g. in memory of someone or on your own birthday or names day.)
You can sign up to bring a dish to a meal, like a salad or dessert.
You can donate some money towards a lunch.
On special occasions such as Christmas and Pascha or our Parish Feast there is a potluck with a sign-up sheet. The last two points above particularly apply for these occasions.
So, don’t be shy and get involved!
