Our parish participates in the Haitian Orthodox Family Relief project. We provide $100 a month to support a family of 14 in Haiti. Because some of our donors have moved in the past year, we need your help to provide continued support to this ministry — and maybe to expand it! Please see Fr. Nicholas if you can make a monthly pledge of anywhere from $10 to $100 dollars toward this cause.

**********************************************************************************

On Sunday, November 27th we will take up our annual collection to support our diocese's fund for the poor and needy. Please help!

**********************************************************************************

The parish council is beginning to start the process of putting together a budget proposal for 2012. In that vein, we can use everybody's help in two ways:

1. If you have not yet turned in an updated estimate of your expected monthly contributions, please do so ASAP. You can also just send an email to Fr. Nicholas.

2. Parish members who have input with regard to budgetary priorities you'd like to see in place are encouraged to send a message to Fr. Nicholas. We'll try to work your input into the proposal. The final budget decision will be made at the annual parish meeting in February, but the proposal will be put together at the next two council meetings.
