After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY


Haiti Update

from Fr. Gregory

Monday Sept. 28, 2015
The not-quite-hurricane a few weeks ago wrought terrible damage at Jacmel/Cyvadier... nearly all crops destroyed.  I had to dispense some emergency aid, as many people in the area are heavily dependent on their gardens.  It was bad enough to destroy even banane trees, which are pretty sturdy.

The FMSC food aid is in PaP, expected to be ready for trucking to LaPlaine and Cyvadier today or tomorrow... but the situation with the former is unclear; when I was there I was unable to visit St. Dorothy's because of massive demonstrations and barricades on Blvd. Marin... so there may be some delay.

I had hoped to make some further website updates, and might still be able to do so from here... but computer connections here are very troublesome, so might not be able to do anything till I return home 10/10.  Notably, some major repairs/ reconstruction at St. Augustine's, both church & school.

Please keep me in your prayers... a badly needed period of R&R before plunging back into the cyclone of calendar work!
