This past Sunday Father Job mentioned that the Thanksgiving encyclical of Metropolitan HILARION included an appeal for funds for the Fund For Assistance. The Fund helps our clergy in need, our youth, who chose to live their lives in the church, and those suffering from natural disasters.
Please take a moment to read the Metropolitan’s encyclical and view the two videos on that page. The first video is about the Fund for Assistance itself and how it works to help the church, our monasteries, clergy, youth, and those in need. The second video provides a contrast of the world’s view and the church’s view of Nativity, and of course the contrast is striking.
There is a jar by the offering plates for donations to the Fund for Assistance. If you write a check, please make it out to St. Nektarios Church and note “Fund for Assistance” in the memo. We will gather those donations and send one offering from the church at month’s end. Thank you for your generosity.
