Nativity Appeal of the St.John of Kronstadt Memorial Fund 2018/ 19

Dearly beloved, Reverend Fathers, Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

CHRIST IS BORN! GLORIFY HIM!

Once again we turn to you for your help during this festive season of Our Saviour’s Nativity in helping us aid those in need, our Orthodox brothers and sisters who struggle on a daily basis to satisfy their needs in the face of life’s challenges. It is with your continued help and generosity that this is being accomplished. Below are exerts from letters thanking our Memorial Fund from various countries:

“Again and again, we thank both you and the Fund for your recent help to us…..my wife, Svetlana had an operation in Belgorod, and glory to God, all went well.” 18th October 2018, Kursk, Russia.

“The residents of our nursing home and administrators of our institution wish to sincerely thank you for helping those in need.”  St. Paul’s Society in San Paolo, Brazil, October 2017. 

“Our elderly in need…deeply thank you all for all the help from your fund.” Novi Sad, Serbia, December 2017.

There are many such letters from Russia, Ukraine, South America, Asia and other parts of the world in which our Orthodox faithful struggle in parishes, monasteries, convents, orphanages, or simply as individuals needing help.

We ask you to remember the poor and needy with your gift of love, that is your compassion and generosity to the less fortunate. St. John of Kronstadt celebrated the whole cycle of Divine Services including the Divine Liturgy daily because of his great love for God and his neighbor. As we celebrate our Lord’s Nativity, let us offer our gratitude to Our Lord by imitating the good works of our St. John, and be active in helping the needy. Please join our Memorial Fund which is a mere $24 per year membership, and by donating whatever you can.

May Our Incarnated Saviour bless both you and your loved ones this Christmas, and grant you a blessed New Year of 2019!

Christ is Born! Glorify Him!

Archpriest Michael Taratuchin, Vice-President of the St.John of Kronstadt Memorial Fund and Rector of the St.John of Kronstadt Memorial church in Utica, New York, USA.

 

Рождественское Обращение 2018/19

 

Дорогие Возлюбленные Отцы, Братья и Сёстры во Христе,

ХРИСТОС РОЖДАЕТСЯ! СЛАВИТЕ ЕГО!

В праздничный день Рождества Спасителя и Господа нашего мы обращаемся к вам с просьбой помочь тем братьям и сестрам во Христе, кто нуждается и ежедневно борется с трудностями. Благодаря вашей постоянной помощи и щедрости  жизнь этих людей становится возможной. Ниже привожу отрывки из благодарственных писем, поступивших в наш фонд из разных стран:

«Снова мы благодарим вас и ваш фонд за помощь нам …  моей жене Светлане сделали операцию в Белгороде, и Слава Господу, все прошло хорошо». 18 октября 2018 года, Курск, Россия.

«Пациенты нашего лечебно-реабилитационного центра для престарелых и администрация искренне благодарят вас за помощь нуждающимся». Общество Св. Павла в Сан-Паоло, Бразилия, октябрь 2017.

«Наши нуждающиеся престарелые … искренне благодарят вас за помощь вашего фонда». Новый Сад, Сербия, октябрь 2017.

Множество подобных писем приходит из России, Украины, Южной Америки, Азии и других частей света, где в приходах, мужских и женских монастырях, домах сирот или просто один на один наши верные православные братья и сестры вынуждены бороться с жизненными трудностями.

Мы обращаемся к вам с просьбой вспомнить о бедных и нуждающихся и протянуть им руку помощи, оказать сострадание и милосердие, проявив щедрость к малоимущим.

Благодаря огромной любви к Господу  и к ближнему Св. Иоанн Кронштадтский ежедневно совершал полный круг богослужений включая Божественную Литургию.

Празднуя Рождество Господа нашего Иисуса Христа,  давайте принесем благодарность Господу нашему и Спасителю, подражая добрым деяниям Св. Иоанна Кронштадтского и будем активны в помощи нуждающимся. Присоединяйтесь к нашему мемориальному фонду, ежегодный взнос в который составляет лишь 24$, и  жертвуйте каждый, что может.

Да благославит наш воплощенный Спаситель вас и ваши семьи, родных, близких и любимых в Рождество и дарует благословенный Новый 2019 год!

Христос Рождается! Славите Его!

С любовью в воплощённого Спасителя,

Протоиерей Михаил Таратухин, вице-председатель благотворительного фонда Святого Праведного Иоанна Кронштадского, настоятель Храма-Памятника Святого Праведного  Иоанна Кронштадского в городе Ютика, штат Нью-Йорк, США.
