Shameless appeal for St. John's
« on: July 20, 2017, 12:29:11 PM »
St. John's in St. Francisville, La., (ROCOR) is raising money for a new building. They've been using a small rented facility for a few years, and an opportunity has presented itself for them to move into a permanent base.

This is a mission I intermittently attended when I lived in that area. About this time last year, they had dwindled to only three families and lost their priest, but have since gotten a new pastor and grown to the point that a new building is needed.

If you're feeling inclined to help the spread of the faith in a part of the world where Orthodoxy is spread pretty thin, you can donate to the building fund here: https://fundly.com/new-building-down-payment

It is shameless in that it doesnt have shame, unlike something that is shameful?

Can't DreRod write another book or something and donate the proceeds?
Les démons du hasard selon
Le chant du firmament nous mènent
A sons perdus leurs violons
Font danser notre race humaine
Sur la descente à reculons

Destins destins impénétrables
Rois secoués par la folie
Et ces grelottantes étoiles
De fausses femmes dans vos lits
Aux déserts que l'histoire accable

AFAIK, Rod's not a part of the parish anymore. I could be wrong. I only met him a couple of times in passing.
