UOL Thanksgiving Tithing Program!
Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and many of us are undoubtedly anticipating sharing a huge, delicious meal with family and friends. We have so much to be thankful for and, as the holiday season approaches, we should take a good, hard look at the blessings that have been bestowed upon us and how we can share them with others.
This year’s Thanksgiving Tithing Project, which is sponsored annually by the UOL, gives you an opportunity to positively impact a small parish community with a great need. The funds raised this year have been earmarked for Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Whaleyville, MD.
This parish is located near Ocean City, MD and is served by Deanery clergy since it does not have its own priest. Although the parish is 50 years old, the church building is 150 years old and in need of much repair. The parishioners of Holy Trinity – few in number – are doing their best to fix and paint and replace but they need our help.
Individual UOL and church members are being asked to donate 10% of their total Thanksgiving Day expenses – food, centerpieces, etc. – to help Holy Trinity. UOL chapters are requested to also make a donation to this worthwhile cause.
All donations should be made out to the Ukrainian Orthodox League and sent to Financial Secretary, Mrs. Pam Scannell, 2000 Clover Drive, Vestal, NY 13850.. One check will be presented to Holy Trinity Parish on behalf of all our chapters.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us and we will be more than willing to assist you.
