On Saturday 20 April 2019, Lazarus Saturday, our parish will take up a collection to benefit the Russian Eccelesiastical Mission in Jerusalem. This collection is generally taken up on Palm Sunday every year in all the parishes, monasteries and missions of our Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia. Collection envelopes will be available in church from the evening of Friday 19 April. Many places of immense spiritual and historical significance in the Holy Land have been entrusted to the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia, and we have many monastics there who care for these holy places, undertake good works, and pray for the whole world. Please give generously! Those who wish to make a donation online direct to the Mission may do so here.
