VIDEO SURVEILLANCE PROTECTION SYSTEM. ARE YOU HELPING US MEET OUR NEEDS?

As we know, everything ancient needs careful protection and restoration. Father Nazari started this process, and we receive some donations for the restoration and renovation of our unique spiritual shrines. For a long time the problem has been especially acute that we need to arrange more reliable protection for the church, that is why during several Parish Council meetings the installation of a video surveillance system has been considered. It  would help us protect our shrines, in addition, ensure the safety of our parishioners and their belongings, as well as the safety of our clergy, servants and employees of our church.

We are happy to inform you that we collected $15,200.00 and were able to schedule the installation of video surveillance protection system on October 9th. We still need anothr $4,800.00 to collect in order to finish the project. Please be generous and boost it up. We need your help.

Alla Bobrova,

Starosta

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

   From the bottom of my heart I would like to greet you on the occasion of the upcoming feasts of the Nativity of All Holy Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary and the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.

   I hope that August was a success for all of us and we successfully completed the Dormotion lent for our spiritual growth and benefit, and that we celebrated the great feast of the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos.

   I would like to express my gratitude to all those who took part in the preparation and organization of the choral master class with Vladimir Gorbik, first of all to our parish secretary Julia, the Sisterhood, who worked to ensure that all participants received both spiritual and physical food, and all, who enrolled in the master class and supported this program which is important for the spiritual growth and development of our parish.

Dear parishioners, once again I greet you in the position of Starosta.
We all love our historic Temple and we all worry about its future. My predecessor Leonid Gregory and many other parishioners who passed away (reposed), such as Boris Shalygin, my late husband Subdeacon Eugene Bobrov, Irene Leonov, Zoya Wagner, Matushka Margarita Romanovna Gizetti and others, spent much of their free time for the benefit of decoration and repairs in our Temple.
