Diocese To Offer Assistance to Hurricane Victims
JOHNSTOWN, PA [Diocesan Chancery] --- In an archpastoral letter issued on September 7, 2017, His Grace Bishop Gregory has called upon the parishes of the Diocese to support the hurricane relief efforts of the International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC). All parishes of the Diocese have been directed to take a special collection for IOCC at their earliest possible opportunity, giving whatever they are able to help those in need. Read Letter Here.
In addition, His Grace has called upon the faithful of the Diocese to support a special Diocesan outreach project which is being coordinated by the National Sr. ACRY. Parishes are being asked to assemble Emergency Clean-up Kits for IOCC. Full details of this project will be sent to the parishes of the Diocese and posted on www.acrod.org.
May Almighty God strengthen and protect those who have been impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
