"Parish Grant Program" - 01/24/15

At the 2011 Diocesan Assembly, a "Parish Grant Initiative" was approved. Parishes in the New England Diocese can apply for financial grants to support outreach and charity programs in their communities. The diocese has budgeted up to $10,000 in grant monies to help support parishes in these efforts.

March is ONE Stewards Month

The diocese reached its highest level of ONE Stewards donations in 2014, over $25,000. Our Diocesan Archbishop Nikon continues to set the example of generous stewardship with his personal donations to ONE Stewards throughout the year. The "Bishop's Circle" donors ($500 or more) also are very crucial in meeting the goals of ONE Stewards and in 2014 there were three new donors to this select group. This past year also included a new category of "anonymous" donations totaling over $3000 to ONE Stewards. Show your support of our diocesan Youth by sponsoring a "rallyer" through ONE Stewards. In addition our diocesan Seminarians, our diocesan Missions, and our diocesan Charity donations are supported by your "Giving Above and Beyond" to ONE Stewards. You should be receiving your ONE Stewards appeal envelope in late February. Remember, March is ONE Stewards month. Let's all join Archbishop Nikon in supporting ONE Stewards in 2015.

Statutes Revision: Public Comments - 03/12/15

OCA Statutes Revision: Public commenting deadline is April 20th.

The opportunity for discussion at the ACC has yet to be clarified, so if you would like to suggest changes, now is the time to do so.

"While the final agenda is still being approved by the Holy Synod, the AAC will devote most of an entire Plenary session to discussion of the Revised Statutes. The form of that discussion is still being planned so that it will be directed and inclusive while considering the size of the Council and the time limitations." —The Preconciliar Commission
