Blessings to All!
As you all know, Prayer Fellowship is one of the most important spiritual organizations that equips us in the Orthodox faith and motivates us for mission and fellowship. It is our desire that all charitable activities of our Diocese should come under the umbrella of the Prayer Fellowship of our Diocese. While we are spiritually nurtured by the Church, it is also the responsibility of every faithful member of the Church to make a difference in the world through our charitable efforts. For our Lord said, "Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me" (St. Matthew 25:40).
We have identified certain areas of need and have created a charity project titled LoveIndeed, which is taken from the Bible verse 1 John 3:18. While we have many goals for these projects, none of it can be achieved without the proper tithe from each member of our Diocese. When we set apart a portion of our earnings on a monthly basis and share it with those in need, we should consider it as an offering of thanksgiving to God Almighty for the blessings we receive from Him.
The faithful members of our Church in North America have already made a deep impact in India through their charitable contributions. This can be seen in the numerous institutions; however, the contributions made to LoveIndeed are not intended to build institutions, rather to reach the beneficiaries themselves.
We encourage all our faithful to consider donating to LoveIndeed. May the Spirit of God guide us to change the world and grant you a peaceful and prosperous life.
