Drs. Mark and Christine Hoeplinger

Drs. Mark and Christine Hoeplinger

Subdeacon Dr. Mark Hoeplinger will give a slide presentation during coffee hour on January 20th showing oversea medical/dental missions he and his wife Dr. Christine have done in Africa, Peru and Guatemala.  They will soon depart for Guatemala again, this time accompanied by Fr. Vlad, who will be Spiritual advisor to the group of 36 doctors and health care workers there.  You will see what we do on these life saving Orthodox missions, children we have helped-especially how we restore the hearing of the deaf children.  We feel that by serving the poor, we serve The Lord!

Please consider staying for the coffee hour and Dr. Mark’s presentation after Divine Liturgy on Sunday, January 20th.
