Current Emergency Fundraisers:

Saint Andrew Greek Orthodox Church, Lubbock, TX

In light of the vandalism committed against the parish of Saint Andrew Greek Orthodox Church in Lubbock, TX, on Sunday June 13th. The Holy Orthodox Order of Saint George the Great Martyr has reached out to the parish Priest, Father Peter DeFonce. Per the discussion, the Order will work to replace the sacred and holy objects desecrated in the Altar of the Church. Specifically, the Order has resolved to gift a complete chalice set of exquisite beauty, and a new censor that will bring joy and honor to the parish and glory to Christ. Our plan is to raise funds for this project through the philanthropic ministry of the Order. This will release the GoFundMe donations for the sole repair of the church building. Please help the Order meet this need by donating any amount that you can to help us in this worthy cause. Donations can be made through this website through the Donate button. In your donation please indicate it is for Saint Andrews.
