To all Faithful Members of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad!

 

It has been a painful and difficult time since a part of the Church signed the Act of Eucharistic Communion with the Moscow Patriarchate on May 17, 2007, but we have endured and remained true to the Church. Now the time has come for our Church to re-establish its structure and hierarchy. The ROCA Provisional Supreme Ecclesiastical Authority has announced its plan to convene a Vth All-Diaspora Sobor in November of this year in order to resolve these and other important matters facing our Church, and has asked the ROCA Assistance Fund to help gather funds for the Sobor.

 

To assemble our members from all over the world will not be easy, but it is crucial that we come together to chart our future course. As you can understand, there are a great number of expenses associated with such an event. We need to purchase airline tickets for notable guests and for those who cannot afford to do so themselves. We need to reserve a hotel, rooms, and conference halls. We need to arrange meals for all attendees and transportation. Our goal is to raise at least $75,000.00.

 

The success of the Sobor and the future of our Church rests with every one of us.

Please respond to the call of our Church and donate as much as you can for the Sobor.
