Adult Church School Class with Dr. Mark Cherry

Dr. Mark Cherry teaches an adult (college age and just about anyone else) Church School class between the two liturgies on Sunday mornings (at around 10 AM). This class has very stimulating discussions and  is a great opportunity for all our members to learn more about the Orthodox Church. Dr. Cherry is a Professor of Philosophy and Ethics at St. Edward’s University.

Site Selection Committee:

The Site Selection Committee (Chris Attal, Craig Calhoun, Deacon Gregory Farman, Nader Jaber, David Jabour, Margaret Jabour, Joe Namee and Fr. David Barr) has been meeting to look for a site for our second campus for St. Elias. In particular, the search has been centered in on the Mopac corridor north of US 183, although it has not been limited to that area. If you have questions about our second campus site selection, please feel free to talk to one of the committee members.

Offering the Holy Gifts - Sign Up for Holy Bread!

Part of the beauty of Orthodox Worship is that we can participate in many ways. One of the most meaningful ways is offering the bread which becomes the Body of Christ. We need people to bake the bread used in the Liturgy—and you can sign up to offer bread by calling the Church Office (512-476-2314). Instructions for making Holy Bread can be found on our parish web site and also at Sign up for making the Holy Bread and offer it for the health and welfare of your family. It is a meaningful way to become even more involved in the Divine Liturgy.

Celebrate Life!

The St. Elias Ladies Guild is preparing “Diaper Cakes” to give to new babies at St. Elias and to shelters that help women and children. Here’s how you can help us: 

  • Donate funds to our “Baby Bottle Bank” in the Parish Hall (checks preferred). Each “cake” costs about $25 to make and the more funds we have—the more cakes we can make. Each cake has approximately 50 newborn diapers; 2 baby bottles; assorted “treats” such as pacifiers, tub toys, shampoo, lotion. 
  • Donate newborn or size 1 diapers. Bring to the table in the Parish Hall. 
  • Donate “treats” for the cakes (mix-ins): bring packaged baby bottles of any size; pacifiers; bibs; onesies; pretty “baby” ribbon; baby socks; small tub toys; baby lotions and potions… 
  • Help us make the cakes! (Sign up if you want to be called next time we make them) 
  • Buy a cake! Take a cake to your next baby shower. You can order a boy/girl/or mystery baby cake. Cost is $30 for a “custom” cake. 
  • Tell us if you know of someone in the parish who is having a baby! We don’t want to leave anyone out. 
  • Tell us of a favorite shelter or charity that helps moms with babies.
