Church Expansion Fund

Generous donation to our parish from the director of the Gardens of Gethsemane Cemetery

At the patronal feast day last month, the director of the Gardens of Gethsemane Cemetery, Alan MacKinnon, presented the check for five thousand dollars for our project and promises it to do this every year for 5 years. Metropolitan Hilarion thanked Mr. MacKinnon for his support of the Holy Epiphany Church and for his initiative in the construction of the Orthodox chapel at the cemetery. Fr. Victor underscored the cooperation between our parish and the Gardens of Gethsemane Cemetery.

Humanitarian Assistance for the Donbas Region

We received a letter from Fr. Ilya Kobzar, a priest serving in war torn Donetsk, for whom our parish is collecting funds for humanitarian assistance in the Donbas region. 

The Donbas/Donetsk region is a humanitarian catastrophe. Children and the elderly should have a right to food and medicine.

March 2015 update  

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
