Father today told us that our parish (along with others in the OCA's diocese of the West) is falling on hard financial times.  we are needing to cut back on several things, just to pay for utilities.  Father's salary hasn't had a raise in 3 years.  I wouldn't say that we're on the verge of closing or anything (God forbid!)  but times are ever more tough economically.

Please pray with me that, through the intercessions of our Patron, Archangel Michael, of the one who brought us into Orthodoxy, St. TIkhon of Moscow, and the Holy Mother of God, our Church will see a rapid turn around monetarily!

Lord, have mercy!

Such is the same for many churches across all the regions, regardless of jurisdiction.  Lord have mercy upon us all that we may continue to do His work for His glory.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
