Our December 2nd charity collection will go to the Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry.  This agency of the Assembly of Orthodox Bishops brings the light of Christ into prisons by the dedication of its donors and volunteers who have chosen to follow our Lord's words when he stated "I was in prison and you came to me [Matthew 25:36]."

   November 18 through December 23 we are collecting Christmas gifts for needy children. You are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy or sporting good to the collection box in the Parish Hall annex. Through your generosity, Holy Virgin Mary Cathedral will provide joy to a child who might otherwise go without any gifts this holiday season.
