AMAZON SMILE: Visit smile.amazon.org and choose St. Iakovos as the charity to benefit. You then shop Amazon just like you normally do. There is no cost to you, and after checkout a percentage of the sale will go to St. Iakovos. What better way to shop and help the Church at the same time! Visit smile.amazon.com and pick St. Iakovos as the charity you would like to benefit. Then just shop and check out, it’s that easy. If you have any questions about using Amazon smile you can call the office M-F from 9-4 and Chrissy would gladly assist you.

JOIN US FOR OUR NEW ST. IAKOVOS COOKING SCHOOL: Have you ever wished you knew how to make an authentic Greek dish, but needed a good recipe and instruction from a pro?

Start by filling out our inquiry form and then stay tuned for the first date and time. If you have questions, contact Cynthia at firstname.lastname@example.org or call or text 773-251-8161.

VOLUNTEERS FOR THE UPCOMING HOLIDAY SEASON: We are looking for volunteers who would like to dress up as Santa and get on Zoom calls with children from around the country. This is a national event so they need as many volunteers as they can get. You would discuss St. Nicholas, the meaning of Christmas, and also a little about the fun Santa and giving during the holiday season. If anyone is interested in doing this please contact the office or speak to Father Jim
