St. Job of Pochaiv Parish Family Provides Support for the Orphanages in Ukraine

Українська Православна громада Нової Мексики надає допомогу Українським сиротам

Recently, while visiting the national Spiritual Center of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA in South Bound Brook, New Jersey, Rev. Fr. Theophan Mackey, pastor of Saint Job of Pochaiv Ukrainian Orthodox Parish community in Los Alamos, presented a check for $3,000 to His Eminence Archbishop Daniel, hierarch of the Western Eparchy of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA.

The donation was raised by Saint Job of Pochaiv parish family through this year's sale of homemade cookies by the parishioners of the church. The funds are earmarked for the benefit of Ukrainian orphans that reside in the UOC of the USA’s sponsored orphanges, caring for the children and people affected by the Chornobyl Nuclear disaster that occurred thirty-five years ago. Since the year 2000 the UOC of USA has been supporting three orphanages in the towns of Znamianka (Kropyvnytsky region), Zaluchya (Ivano-Frankivsk region), and Phuhachivka (Zhytomyr region) and hundreds of children that live there.

Saint Job of Pochaiv Orthodox Church would like to thank the people of Los Alamos, NM for their generosity and enthusiasm for the annual cookie sales. The event continues to grow and provides help to those in need!
