Fundraising for Africa at St Stylianos Parish, Gymea, Sydney
On Sunday 9th October the Parish of St Stylianos had the blessing of not only experiencing the outpouring of the Holy Spirit with its first Ordination, but also its 9th annual fundraiser for Africa, and especially, St Clements School in Kenya.
The Parish sponsors a feeding program in St Clements where 300 children come to the School from the slums and not only receive an education, but also two meals a day, breakfast and lunch. It is this feeding program that the Parish sponsors by sending $2,500 a month, through the blessing of Archbishop Stylianos, Primate of the Greek Orthodox of Australia.
A great thank you to our Sponsors, Church Committee, Ladies Auxiliary and Youth for working so hard to make the day a great success. A big thank you to all who attended. We raised $24,000! This is still not enough for the year’s sponsorship so if someone would like to help please contact: Fr Constantine Ph 0418 511 212 or you can make a direct deposit to Beirut Hellenic Bank: Parish of Sutherland Kenya - Africa A/C, BSB 942-202, A/C no: 194480.
Let us keep the children of Africa in our prayers and continue our small but willing contribution.
