homeless -- not yet

Still wondering how the utility bill is going to get paid. But we have faith in God. We have faith in prayer, your prayers and the prayers of all those we serve. The Mor Gregorios Community Center is the result of prayer and following the lead of Jesus and all the saints who followed him, including Mor Gregorios.

What would happen if more lived their lives closer to how Jesus lived His? What would happen if we took seriously what Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount? We know that more people would be making a difference in the lives of their friends and neighbours. Are you making a difference?

We hope you will join us on Saturday April 4, 2009, when we dedicate the Mor Gregorios Community Center at St. Mary the Protectress Orthodox Church. It may be by candle light, but we have lots of candles...and a lot of faith that God will not let the electricity be turned off. We also have faith in you. We are located at 1000 South Michigan Street, Plymouth, Indiana.

We thought about having a fund raiser the night before the dedication. We would like to have the Soweto Gospel Choir raise their voices, but this video is the best we could do.




And as the Ladysmith Black Mambazo sang while performing at the Nobel Peace Concert we have faith in God as we sleep in the cave.




But we are not yet homeless. And with your help, the power and the ehat will not be turned off. And with your help, the employment program of the Mor Gregorios Community Center will continue to help all of those suffering from the current economic crisis find new jobs, find a way to put food on their family's table, find a job to pay their own electric bill.

There are those in the community center's program who are already making a difference in teh lives of their friends and neighbours. You can join them in helping. To find out how email us at mmonastery@synesius.com or call the church and center at 574-540-2048.

And please keep us and those we serve in your prayers.

By the way, rather than have a fund raiser the night before the dedication, what are we going to do? We are going to pray...pray a lot. Come on over and join us.
