Palm Island Water Park, Batavia NY

On Saturday, 3 January, parishioners from Saint George Church in Buffalo NY and Saint John the Baptist Church in Rochester NY met "half-way" for family fun and fellowship at Palm Island Indoor Water Park (Batavia NY). The day featured fun on the waterslides, pool basketball, and lots of splashing. As children enjoyed the water fun, adults discussed ways the parishes could collaborate and support one another in the future. Coordinating the event were Sub-Deacon Sean McNulty and Deacon (Dr) Mark Hoeplinger, both graduates of the Diocesan Diaconal Formation Program.

 

Evening prayers/Vespers were led by Deacon Mark Hoeplinger (Saint George parish) and chanted by Sub-Deacon Sean McNulty, Arthur Papanastasiou, and Raphael Platte (Saint John the Baptist parish) with all of the children reading portions of the beautifully prayerful service. After prayer, old and young feasted on pizza. 

 

Another Buffalo-Rochester fellowship is planned for the Paschal season.
