WE KINDLY APPEAL TO YOU TO HELP OUR CHURCH
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ!

We appeal to you with a heartfelt request to help our small parish cope with the great difficulty that has beset it.

Our church building which houses our church and is the site of our entire parish life is over 100 years old. Besides the constant repairs which it requires by virtue of its venerable age, several times it has demanded catastrophic repairs from us, due to the negligence to which the building was subjected during the 12-year period in which the church had no rector.

A church of God

Now we are faced with yet another catastrophic repair that surpasses all previous ones. It turns out that there has long been a leak in the roof, which due to the ancient construction of the building did not become immediately apparent. Gradually water from snow and rain poured under the roof and into one of the walls of the facade, until all the wood rotted and the very brick began to crumble.

The cost of the entire repair far exceeds the modest funds which the church possesses. Besides the need for a new roof, our expenses for repairing the facade are considerably complicated and increased by the fact that the church building has been placed in the category of historic edifices, and city laws require all restorations to be done in keeping with its original style.

We kindly ask you to help us, dear brothers and sisters, and may the All-merciful Lord Himself reward you a hundredfold for your generosity and concern for His abode! Thank you and God bless you!

With love in Christ, Fr. Ion Barbus
and the church council.
