2013 ANNUAL ARCHBISHOP’S APPEAL CAMPAIGN
A Year of Focus
Focus on what’s happening to all of Christianity.
Focus on what’s happening World Wide in our Syriac Orthodox Church.
Focus on what’s happening in our Archdiocese.
In recent times Christianity has been focusing on many challenges from adverse groups. Our Church in the Middle East has had more than its share of anguish with no end in sight of the daily torment and suffering of our brothers and sisters, and with a future in jeopardy. Our Archdiocese is facing the reality of the future and the two-fold responsibility it has here and abroad.
Those who go to God Most High for safety will be protected by the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “You are my place of safety and protection. You are my God and I trust You.” (Psalm 91: 1-2)
The Archbishops Appeal will help underwrite our Archdiocesan programs which include: clergy education, publications, youth retreats, youth director, relief fund and the daily operations of the Archdiocese.
Through the Archbishop’s Appeal you can help here and abroad. We are preparing ourselves for that which remains to be seen, to be there when it counts most. Through your generous contributions we are able to do the right thing. We have sent, and will continue to send, financial assistance to our brothers and sisters in Syria to the best of our ability. We call on your participation to help our on-going Archdiocesan programs, which among other things, includes the relief initiative. Our plans for the future also center around the Midland Avenue project and its success. Ours is to continue having faith in God and be compassionate to those in need.
Your Appeal donation is deeply appreciated. See it in your heart to do the right thing so we in turn can respond.
“Lord, even when I have trouble all around me, you will keep me alive. When my enemies are angry, You will reach down and save me by your power.”
