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 Mission Update

a little bit can help a lot 
from Fr. Gregory in Tennessee...

Blessings!  Safely (and apparently soundly) back from Haiti, to confront the usual mountain of work... just today I finally managed to get sifted through (most) e-mail and process accumulated orders (but not yet shipped... that's for Monday).  The trip, finagled at the last minute, was good and useful, I think.  Several hours of "face time" with Fr. Amboise (we do much better that way than by e-mail, and telephone is pretty much useless except for making appointments and arrangements), and a good visit to St. Augustine's in Jacmel for the parish feast (transferred to the Sunday following) and good conferences with several of the key people there.

A looming (long-standing!) need for St. Augustine's School... a viable "library".  Nothing on the scale of what that word implies to you... an available 20' square room, mildly earthquake damaged, which needs finishing of walls, floor & ceiling, construction of bookcases (concrete... termites eat anything else!), tables and chairs, for our upper-level students.  Several international aid agencies are standing by to donate books... but won't do it until there's a suitable space for them (understandably!).  

A little donation goes a long way.
