Archpastoral Letter of His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon
in Reference to Recent Developments 
Regarding the Orthodox Church in Ukraine

09.26.2018

To the Clergy, Monastics, and Faithful of the Orthodox Church in America:

Christ is in our midst!

I write in reference to recent developments respecting the Orthodox Church in Ukraine which have received much media attention. The Holy Synod of Bishops of the Orthodox Church in America has been closely following these developments inasmuch as they have an impact in our own communities. Many of our parishes have been affected by the painful historical ecclesiastical divisions that have existed in Ukraine for decades. In recent years, these ecclesiastical divisions have been overtaken by significant violent geopolitical conflict and our Church has consistently called for the offering of prayers for the healing of such division and the peaceful and just resolution of all conflict.

Through the generosity of our parishioners we were able to make 3 elementary school and one high school student backpacks.  I took the backpacks to City of Angels, a program of the Los Angeles Unified School District that works with homeless children. To say that they were delighted to get them would be an extreme understatement.  The director, Rami, was so excited, that she posed for pictures with me and the backpacks!  She wouldn't let me leave before she had hand-written a thank you note, which is posted with the pictures on the Charity Committee bulletin board outside the church office.  Thank you to all who donated!

   The dishwasher in the kitchen was repaired and updated. A special pump was installed. We are now able to have the correct amount of soap and rinse chemicals added automatically at every wash cycle. We are pleased that we did not have to replace the washing machine because the cost is very expensive.

Another year has passed for camp.  I'm happy to report it was a success.  We had 55 kids there and 4 were from our parish.  (I hope that will increase next year). Everyone seemed to enjoy all the crafts-leather working, terrariums, clay bears, tissue flowers, and friendship bracelets.

The Kiosk contents have been moved from the old location in the School Building to the lower level of the Hall Building. This means the Kiosk will be more accessible to you as you leave the hall and head for your car the lower parking lot!  Hopefully, more of you will drop by and see what's new!
