A Modest Lenten Request

TORONTO, ONTARIO --  "For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;" (Gospel Reading - Meatfare Sunday)

St. John the Compassionate Mission, an Apostolate of the American Carpatho- Russian Orthodox Diocese is asking assistance from those who wish to respond to the gospel command to help "the least of these My brethren" in a tangible way.  At St. John the Compassionate Mission, a person can be fed and kept warm throughout the entire winter for $75.00 

Those who are able are asked to consider "adopting" one person (or more).  This small gesture will not only help feed and warm someone in need, but will also let them know that someone indeed cares for them.

To participate you may make your donation on line   or send your contributions to:

St.   St. John the Compassionate Mission
155 Broadview Avenue
Toronto, Ontario   Canada  M4M2E9

When making your donation on-line or via mail, please indicate the memo  Lenten Adopt a Person Program
