Expansion Project - Fundraising Appeal

Dear Parishioners of the Holy Epiphany Church,

The Holy Epiphany Church is the spiritual center of the Russian Orthodox Church in Boston. Every year, we’re delighted to see the church overflow with parishioners. The length of the communion line on Sundays alone speaks volumes about the growth potential of our community. God willing, in the summer of 2015, we hope to begin the expansion and modification of the narthex to accommodate the needs of our current and future parishioners. If funds allow, we also hope to start planning for a new parish center behind the church.

The church expansion project will include making several much needed modifications to our building, such as:
• adding an elevator to all levels of the church to improve accessibility
• doubling the size of the choir loft
• removing the current stair up to the choir loft
• modernizing our restrooms expanding our trapeza space below the church
• updating our heating and cooling systems
• adding storage space for books, vestments, and other liturgical items
• placing the candle counter in the new entrance hall to improve safety and flow
• adding needed space in the church

As construction begins, we hope to immediately start planning for the new parish hall and cultural center that would replace the current house next to the church. Besides accommodating for cultural events, lectures, and parish banquets, the new hall would provide dedicated classrooms for our children and youth, parish offices, a library, and possibly an apartment for those who need temporary housing assistance.

We now begin our fundraising efforts, and would like to invite you to pledge multiple donations over time toward the cost of the project. The parish relies solely on the parishioners’ donations both for its existence and any upgrading. Your kind commitment to the future of our community would make the success of our plans possible.

Please ask your friends to support us as well. Our dreams can become reality only with your help. May our Lord bless our intentions and your generosity!

Archpriest Victor Boldewskul
