Alms Request for St Isaac of Syria

From Dn Bohdan: Currently, because of a variety of factors, St Isaac of Syria Skete is undergoing a serious financial trial. This is partly because their shippers are asking they completely pay up their account rather than allowing them to make the frequent smaller payments that they had been doing in the past; another problem is that there is so much more competition in the icon market. So during this Lenten season, because of their extreme financial distress, they are asking for alms. Many of the icons that I gave away to parishioners during the Archangel Michael Hall building project fundraiser came from St Isaac of Syria Skete. If you in your heart are moved to help, here is their address: St Isaac of Syria Skete, 25266 Pilgrims Way, Boscobel WI 53805; you may also donate online. (The skete is a nonprofit church organization (501c3), so your donations are tax deductible.)
