Godparent and Godchild Sunday set for February 18

Holy Trinity Catechetical School invites all to our annual Godparent-Godchild Sunday, February 18! We are asking that you invite your Godparents and Godchildren to celebrate the Divine Liturgy and to reaffirm the commitment that was made at baptism. There will be no classes on that Sunday. A Lenten Meal will be served in the Community Center following Divine Liturgy honoring the Godparents and Godchildren. Everyone is invited to join in the celebration. Please make plans to attend.

Also of note, from the February Ekfonesis' "Catechetical Corner":

It would be wonderful if all Godchildren and Godparents lived close to each other so that they could attend the Godchild-Godparent Sunday together. If your child’s Godparents live in another city, why not contact them to attend their Church on February 18 and receive the Eucharist while you and your family do so at Holy Trinity! Concerning Godchildren/Godparents, we are truly blessed today to have such a wealth of materials about our Orthodox Faith. Please take advantage of the books, articles, and especially, internet information that is available. Following are some very interesting websites that deal with selecting or being a godparent.
