Dear parishioners, supporters and all who frequent our services,
The Parish Annual Fall Lottery is coming soon and our Rector and Parish Council once again appeal to you for support in purchasing and selling the tickets.
The Annual Lottery is not a gamble as we do not distribute any profit from income or deficit. This is just another way to donate to our parish. The Lottery has been in practice for several years proving to be appreciated by parishioners as a successful tool to raise additional money and to make up for the shortfalls, especially after less active summer months. The construction, charitable, and church funds that support and maintain our Cathedral and Rawdon parish life are usually the recipients of the Lottery proceeds.
The number of “old” parishioners, who used to bear most of the burden of maintaining our parish, is slowly dwindling. For example, from 240 individuals in 1980 the number had fallen to 188 by 1990; then down to 110 in 2002, and in 2012 only about 100 active parishioners participated in the Lottery. So we appeal, in particular, to all you – “new” parishioners and all other 500 families of our constant Church goers – to support our parish.
On Saturday August 2 at 10 am our clergy will minister Divine Liturgy in the St. Seraphim church in Rawdon on the day of the Saint Patron of this church.
As we did in previous years a bus for pilgrims will depart from our cathedral in Montreal at 8 am to Rawdon, and will depart back to Montreal from Rawdon at 4 pm the same day.
If you want to join us on this celebration day, please sign in in the candles shop.
Following our Great Lent tradition of having joint services of Montreal Orthodox parishes we invite you all to attend the first joint service – Vigil – that will be held this Sunday March 9 at 7 pm in the St. Sophie Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral on the day of Triumph of Orthodoxy.
The address is 6250 12th Avenue, Montreal, H3X 2A5 / (514) 727-2236.
On Sunday, November 24 the flag of the Russian Federation has been consecrated at the small church hall.
The consecration done by Father Basil together with a restrained group of scouts among our small parishioners.
