We are looking for a new parish priest and we need your help, both in financial and volunteering support, and in prayer and support for the search.
Together with our other major expense of our church rent, our parish budget has been for the past few years approximately S$60,000 annually. We are grateful and blessed that we have received enough, mostly in occasional donations, to meet all our past needs.
Now we need to increase the stipend for a full-time priest and add a housing stipend to support a small rental HDB where the Bishop and visiting priests could stay, as hotel costs are extremely high in Singapore.
The new budget drawn up by the Parish Committee and under the blessing of the Bishop, will come to approximately S$9,800 per month.
Full stipend for a Priest: S$4,000 (Monthly Subtotal)
Rental of Church: S$2,300 (Monthly Subtotal)
Rental of HDB flat for the Bishop and visiting clerics: S$2,500 (Monthly Subtotal)
Philanthropy (Food support for the Orthodox orphanages in Bali and East Timor): S$650 (Monthly Subtotal)
Other costs, mostly books and church supplies: S$350 (Monthly Subtotal)
We need your financial support now to raise about S$5,000 additionally each month. A new parish priest will mean we can celebrate the Divine Liturgy every week, with additional services,
Bible study classes, more outreach programs to our children and families, and provide pastoral care for those in need. We will also be able to help visiting priests and clerics stay and serve in Singapore longer.
Please consider what you are able to give, and know that all donations are appreciated in all amounts.
Regular donations would be especially helpful.
