New Senior Program Features Home Cooking and Fellowship

East Meadow, NY – Nearly a dozen senior members of Holy Trinity Orthodox Church gathered for fellowship on Tuesday, January 17, 2012. Those in attendance were served home-cooked meal courtesy the parish’s Sisterhood organization and spent a couple hours playing games together.

The morning gathering was designed as a way to bring long-time members back together in a very familiar setting. “Many of these parishioners spent countless hours at past events here,” said Alice Kurtz, a member of the Sisterhood, “We wanted to give them another opportunity to get together here at Holy Trinity.”

Based on the positive feedback from those in attendance, the senior get-togethers will occur each month, with food and different activities each time. In February, those in attendance will make pierogi to eat and bring home. In March, the fellowship gathering will take place after a morning Presanctified Liturgy – since many of the seniors are no longer able to drive at night.

Charles Minchik, a long-time member of Holy Trinity said, “It was great time. We could have these once a week and I would be there.”

At the end of the day’s gathering, all of those in attendance received three additional home-cooked meals to bring home. That afternoon, Father Martin and Dennise Kraus personally delivered care packages to other homebound parishioners who weren’t able to join everyone at church.

“When we arrived at one parishioner’s home, he was on the phone with a parishioner who had attended,” said Dennise Kraus, adding, “and was being told what a great time he had missed.”

The importance of fellowship is at the heart of the Christian experience and the mission of Holy Trinity Church. "It was a wonderful day,” said Father Martin. “So many people pitched in to make it happen and we all enjoyed each others company. We’ll find other ways to bring parishioners together again soon."
