The angel announced it to the shepherds “I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:10-11).

The baby Jesus is a symbol of love, light, hope and peace that makes Christmas a joyful season for true believers. St. Paul’s Indian Orthodox Church is sharing the message of Christmas spirit by visiting their members and supporters houses on December 8th, 9th and 15th.

St. Paul’s Albany, MGOCSM and Senior Sunday School kids volunteering at the Capital Region’s largest and longest running holiday tradition “Annual Equinox Thanksgiving Charity Dinner”.

Nearly 50 years ago, a small group of community and religious leaders, students, and social workers held a Thanksgiving dinner for 200 college students who were not going home for the holiday and would have been alone. This marked the beginning of the Capital District's largest and longest-running holiday tradition. Today, the Annual Equinox Thanksgiving Day Community Dinner serves 10,000 of our lonely, home-bound, or homeless neighbors. The Equinox Thanksgiving Community Dinner is funded entirely by generous donations from local businesses, civic groups, and private citizens.

NO ONE should go hungry in our community......especially at Thanksgiving
