Quote of the day

What keeps you from giving now?  Isn't the poor man there?  Aren't your own warehouses full? Isn't the reward promised?  The command is clear:  the hungry man is dying now, the naked man is freezing now, the man in debt is beaten now - and you want to wait until tomorrow? "I'm not doing any harm," you say.  "I just want to keep what I own, that's all."  You are like someone who sits down in a theater and keeps everyone else away, saying that what is there for everyone's use is his own...

— Saint Basil the Great

Help the Perez family face cancer

Our dear Matushka* Mary was recently diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic lung cancer after a year of suffering from recurring pneumonia, bronchitis, chronic cough, several infections, wheezing and fatigue. While the diagnosis does explain her prolonged illness, it came as a shock to her family, friends and our church community.

Her husband, Fr. Dimitri Perez, has been the pastor of our parish for eleven years, and for all these years, Matushka Mary has been helping him in his ministry, and has been doing a lot of work herself in the church community and beyond.

Matushka Mary is a Licensed Psychologist Associate, specializing in work with children, teens and their families and has a private practice which helps supplement income to support her family, which includes their precious and only son Benjamin.

As of this week, Matushka Mary has temporarily suspended her private practice due to her recent diagnosis, in order to seek treatment and work toward healing.  Because the family relies heavily on her income for financial support, we are asking for your generous donation in support of her medical treatment and her family's needs, which will be both numerous and extensive due to insurance not covering all of these needed treatments.

* Matushka means mother in Russian and refers to the title of honor that is used to refer to an Orthodox Priest's wife.

If you wish to donate with a check, please make it payable to "Holy Apostles Orthodox Church", earmark "Mary Perez" and mail to:
