Share the Light Parishes

The final tally for 2013 is in! We ended the year with 73 Share the Light Archdioceses, Parishe,s and Organizations for a total of $47,471, just short of our $50,000 goal.

Now the slate is clean as a new campaign has begun! As of March 19, 2014, 27 archdioceses, parishes and organizations have responded. They are listed below in order of donation amount (highest to lowest). So far, $21,187 has been raised. Our goal for 2014 is $60,000 with at least 100 parishes participating. God always has a way of blessing us when we do His will, we are certain that these goals will be achieved and even surpassed! There are 2,500 Orthodox churches in North America. It will be a glorious day indeed when we have 100% participation from all Orthodox parishes!
