Dear Faithful of St. George,
This past year was challenging for our parish and we are optimistic that we can gradually return to more activities in person at church!
Over this time, we have done our best to bring fundraising events in a safe manner with many pickup dinners, zoom Anniversary Consecration program, Special Appeals, etc.
Our expenses are approximately $12K per month. We were fortunate to have applied for the federal government PPP (Payroll Protection Program) in 2020 and again in 2021 and received grants.
Between parishioner donations and the PPP grants, we have been able to sustain our financial position and pay our expenses to this point. The money raised goes toward providing church services, pastoral services, Sacraments, bible studies, live streams, reflections and cultural programs through zoom, in addition to maintaining our facilities.
We are looking ahead and need to generate $24K, to get us through May and June. Please consider a donation to help us achieve our goal.
Donations may be made online https://www.sgarmenianchurch.org/appeal/, – both one time and recurring or via check mailed to church. Do you have stocks or 401K distributions you’d like to donate? We have the ability to accept them!
Thank you for your consideration as we ensure the sustainability of our church in support of her mission.
Rev. Fr. Voski Galstyan, Pastor
