New Choir Director
We greet with open hearts and sincere good wishes our new Choir Director Irina Seraphimovna Shachneva, and wish her God’s blessing and help in her new position. Irina is well known in the San Francisco Bay Area and the broader Russian Community as Director of the Slavyanka Russian Chorus and also to our choir because she has participated with them for a number of years. All the best to Irina and good success!

We are overcome with grief over the tragic events in Ukraine, for many of us the land of our forefathers, and for some the land where our relatives live today. We pray to the All-Merciful Lord, and His Most-Holy Mother for speedy secession of all hostilities, and for long-lasting peace.
