Archpastoral Appeal for Asia Disaster Relief

December 28, 2004

 

To the Very Reverend Protopresbyters, the Very Reverend and Reverend Fathers, and Pious Faithful of our God-Saved Diocese:

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Dear Father and Faithful:

Please be aware that the jurisdictions of the Ecumenical Patriarchate have been advised of the need for us, as the people of God, to act with mercy in alleviating the suffering of so many who have been affected by the recent earthquake and tidal waves in Asia. Please continue to pray for them in your parish.

Additionally, we have been advised of the necessity also to provide financial assistance. I am, therefore, directing that each parish of the Diocese take up a collection for this purpose on a Sunday in January. Please DO NOT send your parish offering to the Chancery, but directly to:

INTERNATIONAL ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN CHARITIES
