Sponsor a priest + family for this Great Lent
Exploring Siberia we discovered a newly carved Diocese of Karasusk & Ordinsk. On the southern edge of Siberia, bordering Kazakhstan. OUr RACS envoy will survey the diocese and provide a report to all soon. Your donations will go 100% to food. The envoy is sponsored by RACSED. Fifteen places of worship, fifteen priests, receiving a salary of $120 month each. We want to deliver to each priest $140 in groceries- we will buy wholesale through our connections, and through Big Box stores where we get better deals than the prices in far flung- remote villages. We will also do a survey of the priests and their living conditions as part of this project. Donate to the St Andrew's Mission
We ask $140 to sponsor one priest, or $70 for 1/2 share, or any amount- every $5 helps

St. John's Orphanage- Ukraine
