EMERGENCY KITS NEEDED FOR HURRICANE IKE VICTIMS

IOCC is issuing an emergency appeal for its continuing response with cash funds going towards immediate clean-up and recovery efforts. Orthodox faithful, including Sunday Schools, youth groups and others, are also urged to continue providing emergency clean-up buckets and health kits for shipment to the Gulf Coast . IOCC distributed 1,000 such kits in New Orleans and Baton Rouge immediately following Hurricane Gustav.

Ailing Priest Needs Help

Fr. Michael Mihalick, an OCA priest, has cared for those sick in soul and body. Now, due to an agressive form of multiple sclerosis, he has been forced to retire from active ministry. Fr. Michael is 56 years old and no longer able to care for himself or his family. He cannot walk or talk very well and is in constant need of his wife's care. His wife has medical problems of her own and is unable to work. She has no health insurance. They need help to pay for her health insurance and their household bills. Any monetary donation would be greatly appreciated. During this time of Great Lent, let us open our hearts to help those in need.

Donations can be sent directly to: Janet Mahalick, 323 Nees Ave, Johnstown, Pa 15904 or can be routed through Christ the Saviour Church, P.O. Box 179, Bishopville, MD 21813. (Please mark your donation sent to the Church "Mihalick Support".) Thank you.
