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!
