Adopt-a-tree drive and building updates
2010 is a joyous time for the small community of St. Nicholas in McKinney (Dallas area), Texas. By God's grace and thanks to the generosity of many people inside and outside our small community, our new temple is nearly complete. We will finally be able to leave the temporary facility which has been our home for 16 years and glorify God in a new, beautiful temple. It is looking like our first Liturgy in the new facility will occur shortly after the feast of Ascension.
However, our situation is very difficult financially. Landscaping and parking lot costs have caught us by surprise, and we are struggling to pay our bills. We have sought a second loan from our bank, and are waiting for more news about this.
Whether or not we are able to get a loan, we need to raise more funds to meet these expenses. We have launched a "sponsor a tree" drive to pay for a portion of our additional costs. Anybody willing to help is encouraged to visit our building fund page: http://orthodox.net/aboutus/building-fund.html
. You can also follow the sponsor-a-tree drive at our progress page here>
, which is updated weekly.
Thank you for your help!
