I just got back from a fabulous event at the College Of The Holy Cross. Our OCF (Orthodox Christian Fellowship) group there put on a Food Festival featuring Greek, Syrian and Russian food, dancing, and displays about our faith – icons, chant, scripture, etc. There were over eighty people in attendance, including some from other schools (the Assumption OCF came as well). The students did a great job making and getting the food (Catherine’s mother’s golumpkis were out of this world – I love Russian food), decorating the room, putting together the program book, and getting the word out. A nice touch was having it in Loyola Hall, with a great view of the city. Prez Cindy and I represented the Cathedral and are very proud of our kids.
The night ended with dancing but before that there was a bittersweet moment. The OCF members presented Christina and Catherine, outgoing co-chairs of the group who are graduating this year, with flowers. More than a few tears were shed at this. “Cat” and “Tina” founded the group in 2007 and made it what it is today. We will all miss them when they graduate next month. They are of course no strangers to our Cathedral – here is a picture, with flowers:
