Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our Parish located in the eastern part of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is serving the faithful in this area since February 2012.


By the grace of our Lord we have signed an agreement to purchase a ‘place of worship’ of our own in the Town of Ajax, Ontario and we need to raise a minimum of $135,000 for the down payment, out of which we have already raised about $75,000. A majority of our parishioners are newer immigrants and their lack of adequate financial resources is more than compensated by their prayers, witness, fervour and love for our Lord and the community around them.


We are trusting that the Lord will prompt your hearts to help us raise the remaining funds. We have no tickets to sell or programs or shows to present at this time; however we assure you that every cent of your donation would go towards the down payment needed to acquire this property. We welcome any amount that you can donate, however for administrative reasons we will be able to provide donation tax receipts for all amounts over $20.


In these past 3 years we have had several challenges in conducting worship and other services, however the Lord in His providence has opened doors for us especially to have worship services on Sunday mornings. The prayers of our members and well-wishers have been a refuge; the leadership, support, and blessings of our Diocesan Metropolitan His Grace Zachariah Mar Nicholovos, and the blessings of his Grace Alexios Mar Eusebius Metropolitan of the Diocese of Southwest America have been inspiring. However, in the recent past we have had several hurdles at the place we currently rent and are not sure how long it will be available for us to use. Hence we have an urgent and immediate need to own a place of our own.

Yours in Christ
