Giveaway for a Fantastic Set of Books!


St. Spyridon Church in Palos Hills, IL will be holding a JOY Advent Retreat on Saturday, November 15th. The day begins with Orthros and Divine Liturgy and continues with speakers and activities for both children and parents. The theme of the retreat is “Awesome Wonder” and topics for the parents will include Preparing your Family for Advent, The Hymnology of Advent, Orthodox Christmas Traditions amongst others.

Presbytera Georgia is also compiling a list of Orthodox resources and a Lenten Lunchbox Recipe Book. She’d like to include at least 40 recipes for during the week and weekends as well.

So we need your help!

Everyone that submits a recipe will be entered in a drawing for a set of books that Presbytera is very generously donating. The books include:

  • My Church My World by Fr. Chrysavgis
  • Basil’s Search for Miracles by Heather Zydek
  • How the Monastery came to be at the Top of the Mountain by Alvin Alexsi Currier
  • The Meaning of Icons by Presbytera Hallick
  • A set of Divine Liturgy Activity Books created by the Orthodox Christian Education Commission
  • Icon Coloring Books

The more recipes a person submits the more chances to win the drawing. If you post about this on your blog and link back to here, you’ll be entered again as well! The submission deadline is October 28th. Of course, everyone will be given credit for their submission. Please send all submissions to OrthodoxMama(at)gmail(dot)com.

What a wonderful opportunity to build our children’s Orthodox library! Thank you Presbytera Georgia!

**NOTE: I will be drawing the name of the winner from this comment section so please leave a comment for each recipe you send and let me know if you’ve posted about this! Spread the word!
