Jericho Walk

On a beautiful afternoon in early November (01NOV2015), members of the St. John the Divine community participated 40 Days for Life's Jericho Walk.  The walk around Met. Hospital (the site where abortions are performed in Windsor) marked the end of the 40 Day event, where Right to Life members who support life-giving alternatives to abortion took turns praying for 40 days, 12 hours a day, hoping that women seeking abortions would come to see alternatives to ending their unborn babies lives.

The Orthodox Church is Pro-Life.   Consider joining us at the next opportunity to show your support of life over death.

KAFKA

Kafka in Greece

Part of our mission at St. John the Divine is to help other charitable organizations. One of them this year  was Kafka, a group home for special needs adults in Greece. This group home is a special project of our own Martha. The money was used to buy toiletries, medicines and a special outing. Take a look and see the fun they had.
