Service and Outreach

The Workers of St. Elizabeth

Our service group, under the patronage of St. Elizabeth the New Martyr, engages in ongoing community outreach projects, ever mindful of our Lord’s commandment that “Whatever you did for one of the least of my brothers, you did for Me.” (Mt. 25:40) Past projects have included collecting items for local organizations that provide housing and hot meals, English-language tutoring at an area shelter, and sending care packages to our service men and women overseas.

The Sisterhood of St. Juliana

Women in our parish meet regularly following Sunday Divine Liturgy to plan upcoming meals and events. The Sisterhood, under the patronage of St. Juliana the Merciful, was formed in 1983 and developed a reputation for fine food throughout the ’80s and early ’90s when it operated “Baba’s Kitchen” out of our parish hall, serving up tasty lunches to the public. The women of our parish’s Sisterhood have produced two cookbooks, “Baba’s Best,” and “Baba’s Best II,” and are always ready to contribute their time and talent to events in our parish and throughout the Akron Orthodox community.
