Fr Michael Rosco Memorial House Blessing/Dedication & IOCC Team Build Date Set

PERTH AMBOY, NJ  [St John The Baptist Orthodox Church] -- St. John’s Church is pleased to announce the dedication and blessing of the Habitat for Humanity Memorial Building Project as set for Wednesday, December 07, 2016! This is an exciting moment as the project is nearing completion through the labors and contributions of so many Diocesan Faithful.  A highlight of the dedication ceremony will be the presence of Pani Susan Rosco, and it is desired that as many Diocesan faithful as possible also be in attendance.

In keeping with the spirit of service, a final work week in association with this dedication will take place from December 05 - 10. I OCC has graciously agreed to co-ordinate this aspect of the trip. It is hoped to have some social gatherings at night including a night on the town in New Orleans.

REGISTRATION: Will be done through IOCC and their website. This information is being distributed so that Diocesan faithful may begin to make plans that fit their schedules.

COST/LOGISTICS: The volunteer contribution is $350 per person which includes local transportation, room & board, materials, supplies, tools and site supervision. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older, but 16 and 17 year olds are accepted if they are accompanied by their parent, legal guardian or an adult with a power-of-attorney to act on their behalf for the duration of the deployment. Individuals (or groups) are responsible to travel to the build city on their own, but ground transportation will be provided from the local airport(s) to the housing site.

Anyone interested in participating in this glorious moment is asked to contact Fr. Michael Chendorain at or (732) 826-4442 as soon as possible.
