If you would like to become an official member of the Church the assessment for the calendar year is $300 per person. It can be paid in installments or however is comfortable for you.
Our Church belongs to The New England Diocese which is part of The Orthodox Church of America ( OCA ).
Every Parish pays to the Diocese what is called their FAIRSHARE which is based on the number of people who are official members of their Parish.
As you can see, we must have fundraisers with full support of our parishioners to supplement the assessment.
Much has changed over the past 2 years because of Covid. Church attendance has decreased. As a result, finances have decreased. However, the expenses of the Church remain the same.
If you have any ideas of fundraising, please share them with the Church Council.
