Update Concerning Our Haitian Mission

Greetings to the Faithful! Please remember our Haitian Mission in your Lenten prepararations! We ask foremost for your prayers and if you are able to give alms please recall the holy injunction of St Isaac of Syria: “ If you have something above your daily needs, give it to the poor, and then go with boldness to offer your prayers, that is, to converse with God as a son with his Father. Nothing can bring the heart so near to God as almsgiving...”
 
Fr. Maximus and I returned recently from visiting the faithful Haitian Orthodox. Please see the mission website's recent news section for an update and new photos at haitianorthodoxmission.org . Donations can be made through the website or by sending checks made payable to St Maximus/Haitian Mission to St. Maximus/Haitian Mission 4447 Gaskill Rd., Owego, NY 13827. 
 
Forgive me a sinner,
