Dn. David Companik, Executive Committee Chairman of the St. John Kochurov Society, shares a video message with a festal greeting and request for new members and donations to aid the Society in supporting the Youth, Missions, and Monasteries of the Diocese of Chicago & Mid-America (ROCOR).
Excerpts from this video: "I greet you today with the feast of St. John! This is the 100th anniversary of his repose. He was martyred at the hands of the Bolsheviks... in the October Revolution in 1917."...
"St. John is an inspiration to all of us to take up our cross and follow after Christ; to be willing to let go of, to give up, to offer to God, some of our talents, our time, and our treasures, for the sake of the Kingdom."...
"Any amount that you can contribute today to this need, to this cause, will immediately be put to use to support the Youth, the Missions, and the Monasteries of our Diocese, as we have done before."...
"I must tell you, though, that our funds are running low. If we try to contribute to the same needs this coming year that we did in prior years, we may well see the funds be depleted- if we don't have an increase in members, an increase in donations."...
"Thank you for watching this message, for giving it prayerful consideration, and I look forward to joining with you in spirit in celebrating the memory of St. John, and in putting our feelings and our prayers into action through the supplies, the provision that we give to those who face the greatest needs. Because truly, those who face the greatest needs are very often the future of our Church."
