10% of Festival Proceeds go to Charity Parish Council Decisions

We ask each of our parishioners to make a tithe to the parish.

Some thoughts on tithing from an Orthodox point of view can be found here and may be helpful:

You can find more in this article, which is on our parish web site:

It only makes sense if we ask our parishioners to tithe that we would arrange for 10% of our festival proceeds would go to charities other than St. Vladimir's (10% of our regular collections go to the diocese by the way).

At the meeting of the Parish Council on Saturday, November 18 it was decided to give split the 10% we are giving to charity from this years festival proceeds. Half of the donation will go to Christ the Savior Orthodox Mission in River Rouge, MI (formerly All Saints Mission) and half will go to Zoe for Life Michigan. Thank you all for your support of the festival and for making it possible for us to support these important Orthodox charitable organizations!
