Dear brothers and sisters,

Christ is born!

The fundraising campaign for the signing of the SPA (Site Plan Agreement) was successful thanks to all the parishioners and friends of our parish. We are ready to sign the contract with the city because we managed to collect the money needed for the payment before the deadline: Many thanks to everyone for their contributions and any other help!

Furthermore, as the inflow of money continues, everything in excess of the currently needed amount is being accumulated into the “Building Fund” account, which will be used for the next phases of obtaining building permits and the costs of the construction itself. Hence the fundraising campaign continues – your contributions marked “For Building Fund” can be sent to:

It is encouraging to see how our parish community and its friends organized themselves in such a short time and showed what strength we have when we are united in our cause.
