Dearest Friends and Donors,
During the past year or so you have made a donation to our Church. We thank you!
From January 2015 through today we have repaired many aspects of our facilities. The expenses were heavy and with your help we have surmounted the goals.
Cupolas were repaired. We discovered 67 areas of the cupolas that needed opening, drilling, repairing, resurfacing, and then a mosaic finish to match. Some of these were as small as 4” square, some 2’ square. Crosses atop the cupolas were ‘gilded’. Heating main boiler was replaced. Exterior of the church was coated with four coats to the originally specified colors. Our Parish Icon Joy of All who Sorrow was renewed. Countless smaller issues were attended to. There are still a dozen minor issues before us. We continue that our Sisterhood, while raising funds via bake sales and such, renewed the kitchen. This month we will install new ovens.
In January 2015 we began keeping the Cathedral OPEN7, that is it is now OPEN all daylight hours X seven days. We have services every morning and evening starting 07:30 am and again 06:00pm and are open from before the morning service until after the evening one. Countless persons enter in The Fear of God during these hours. After all, we did not build the Church for it to be closed! In sampling we find that as many visit in between services as those who attend services. People come to light candles and pray.
Should you like a candle lit on your behalf, just email me-
Thank you once more, and may God bless you!
