2nd Annual Bible Bowl – Congratulations !!!

The Second Annual Baltimore Orthodox Bible Bowl was hosted by Holy Cross Antiochian Orthodox Church. This year there were two levels of competition featuring two high school level teams – Holy Trinity and Holy Cross – and three middle school level teams – Holy Trinity, Holy Cross and Four Evangelists (Bel Air). All of the questions were taken from the Gospel of John the Theologian…and the questions were challenging. All of the kids did a great job preparing and competing. Holy Trinity’s middle school team won first place…again for the second straight year. Congratulations to Juliana Havrilko, Chris Pastor and Gregory Vass. And Holy Trinity’s high school team missed first place by only one point. Our hats go off to Vera Pastor and Carissa Havrilko. After the competition Fr. John and Fr. Deacon Michael concelebrated Great Vespers with Archpriest Gregory Mathewes-Green, the pastor of Holy Cross Antiochian Orthodox Church and Fr. David Alexander. Afterwards, an awards reception was held in the church hall to present the winning teams with a trophy and interesting prizes. Congratulations! Our Sunday School teachers and parents are very proud. And all of us in the parish are grateful for the hard work and dedication of our Sunday School.

O Most Holy Trinity, Our God, Glory to Thee!
