Thanksgiving is Coming Special Collections 
24/11/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Each year around the Thanksgiving Holiday we have two special collections in our parish to assist those in need. We thank God prayerfully for His bounty towards us, and we thank Him materially by helping those who are struggling in this life.

On the Sunday BEFORE Thanksgiving (this coming Sunday, November 22) we have a collection to support International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC). IOCC is the clearinghouse charity for all Orthodox Churches in North America. They provide help to all in need in North American and throughout the world regardless of their confession of faith.

Update 11/23/20: We collected $172 on Sunday, November 22 for IOCC. Thank you all!

On the Sunday AFTER Thanksgiving (Sunday, November 29) we have a collection to support our Diocesan Fund for those in Need. Archbishop Peter is often approached for help this fund allows him to help those who are appealing to him in their time of difficulty.

Both these collections will take place in the church at the end of the Liturgy, as we receive the antidron. If you would like to support the November 29 collection you can do that here (please specify the reason for your donation):

Posted by Fr. Gregory


Please join us Friday at 6:00 p.m. and Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m. for the annual commemoration of St. Michael and all the Angels. We have quite a few parishioners named after the angels (our Michaels, Raphaels, Gabriels, etc.), and our Mother Raphaela in Australia celebrates on this day too. We congratulated all on their name's day!

All are welcome! The services will be inside the church, so we ask that you sign up. This allows us to understand the number of people that will attend since we have limited, physically distanced spaces inside the temple:

Construction begins THIS WEEK! Can you spare $10? 
16/11/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Construction on our parish day school, the Ann Arbor Orthodox Christian Academy, begins this week. The beginning of construction will depend on the weather, so certainly by Thursday there will be trucks and bulldozers all over the property. Rest assured that we will bombard you with pictures as construction ramps up! The Lord has blessed us to get this far, and we are thankful all the support we have received so far! But now it is time to strengthen our foundation of support. You cant build a building without a strong foundation. That is true physically (we are using cement for the school, so that part is done), and that is true financially. As of 11/15/20 we have $515 in monthly recurring donations supporting the school. This is great! This is the BEGINNING of a good foundation thank God! But our monthly mortgage payment on the school will be about $1500 and we need to get our recurring donations to this point ASAP. Thats 100 more people at $10 per month. If every adult member of our parish (about 150 folks) can donate $10 per month we are more than done! This is a parish-wide project lets all join in and make it happen as a parish family! The school is the jumping off point to the new church help us build this step to get quickly to the next!

Every member of our Board of Directors has established a monthly recurring donation, as have many of our parishioners and some folks from outside the parish. JOIN US! $10/month. $120/year. Just about $2/week. Visit this link to establish your monthly donation and assure that Orthodox education in Michigan has a firm foundation:

HELP BUILD OUR PARISH SCHOOL!
