Urgent Financial Assistance Needed for young  Albanian Orthodox  Family expecting Baby.

 

The Holy Orthodox Order of Saint George the Great Martyr has been asked to help facilitate funds for a young Orthodox couple in Albania who are in a difficult financial position and expecting their first baby by mid-November.

 

The petitioner wrote:

 

“Dear Sir’s, my name is Era Ademiaj and I am from Gjirokastër, Albania. I am an Orthodox Christian and in desperate need of your assistance for I have nowhere else to turn. I am 8 months pregnant, and my husband does not have a steady job and cannot adequately provide for us as the economy in the region where we live is almost nonexistent.

 

Although my husband has done his absolute best to provide for us (working as a day laborer and selling what he can in the local marketplace) we are still financially destitute and do not have the finances to buy what we need for our coming baby.

 

I would greatly appreciate any assistance the Order could provide us towards the expenses of delivery, towards baby clothes and towards food for the baby.

 

With love in Christ,

 

Era.”

The Holy Orthodox Order of Saint George the Great Martyr has been asked to help facilitate funds for the transportation of clergy and laity to the State funeral and liturgy of the late Metropolitan Jonah of Kampala and All Uganda who reposed in the Lord on Sunday the 6th of September in Athens, Greece. His Eminence Metropolitan Jonah (of blessed memory) will be accorded on the 15th of September 2021 an official state funeral, including a 21-gun salute, and a procession with the Ugandan army.

The number of vans needed is 4. The expense for all four vans is $1,200.00.

Saint Andrew Greek Orthodox Church, Lubbock, TX
